New opportunities have emerged for entrepreneurs and small business owners as a result of the ITU World Triathlon Series coming to Bermuda. WTSBDA Ltd., the entity managing the event, released 16 requests for proposal documents on its website today in an effort to recruit locals to work on the international sporting event, the first of which takes place in Bermuda in April 2018.
The list of opportunities is long and the needs of the event organizers are varied.
All interested parties can review the RFPs, submit questions and tender their bids online at www.tribermuda.com/rfp
“ITU World Triathlon Bermuda is a world-class event and as we’ve seen in the past Bermuda has the talent to meet the highest global standards. The team of people working on this event is committed to finding the right local partnerships,” said the Bermuda Tourism Authority’s Chief Product and Experiences Development Officer Pat Phillip-Fairn. “Whenever there is an economic opportunity, we will share it publicly online. Individuals and companies should submit proposals if they believe they have what it takes to get the job done.”
The ITU World Triathlon Bermuda will welcome international athletes, fans and officials to the island beginning April 2018. The first batch of RFPs deal mainly with spectator entertainment and logistics between Thursday, April 26th and Saturday, April 28th, 2018, on Front Street and other nearby locations along the proposed race course.

The WTSBDA Organizing Committee is made up of members of the Bermuda Tourism Authority, the Bermuda Triathlon Association and other local stakeholders who work alongside experienced international organizations that put on triathlon events around the world.
