ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - January 27, 2015) - Just as everyone in the northeastern part of the country was preparing for the monstrous "Blizzard of 2015" this past weekend, The Bahamas Tourist Office spent some time at the New York Times Travel Show to promote Vacation Express' non-stop, all-inclusive vacations, taking flight this spring to Grand Bahama Island.

"The New York Times Travel Show is a great place to get a lot of exposure," said Dornell Dean, Sr. Business Development Manager for The Bahamas Tourist Office. "Having the ability to meet and talk with so many potential guests is great."
