The Belize Tourism Board has reached out to popular comedian and personality Steve Harvey, asking if he will host the 2016 International Costa Maya pageant. Using Twitter, the Belize Tourism Board reached out to support Steve Harvey, who has been facing an avalanche of criticism after mistakenly announcing the wrong winner of the Miss Universe pageant last weekend.
The tweet by the Belize Tourism Board caught the attention of many international publications, as few others have demonstrated the courage to support the comedian and entertainer after his embarrassing error. Although Steve Harvey has publicly apologized for his mistake, he continues to face a firestorm of criticism online, with tens of thousands of people expressing anger and confusion about the mix-up.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)
The strategy of using social media is part of the Belize Tourism Board’s ongoing efforts to promote the country by staying abreast of trending current events. Earlier this year, the Belize Tourism Board actively used Twitter to comment on live National Football League (NFL) games, famously once offering a free trip to Belize to a beleaguered kicker if he failed to successfully score. The tiny nation of Belize’s strategy of smartly using popular social media to draw international attention to the country has started to pay off, with more and more people now talking online about Belize.
Every year, Ambergris Caye hosts the prestigious International Costa Maya Festival, the biggest festival in the country, which celebrates local culture and music with dancing, drinking, and plenty of live entertainment. The Belize Tourism Board has formally asked Steve Harvey to host the 2016 edition of the International Costa Maya Festival and, Banyan Bay has offered a complete Belize vacation package at the resort if he accepts.
The popular luxury resort of The Villas at Banyan Bay is located in San Pedro on the beautiful island of Ambergris Caye. Located right on the beach, the Villas at Banyan Bay is a popular location for picture-perfect island weddings, as well as vacationers wanting to make the most of the crystal clear waters and outstanding snorkeling and diving opportunities just offshore.
As of this writing, Steve Harvey has yet to respond to the Belize Tourism Board’s generous offer to host the 2016 International Costa Maya Festival.
