What is Local Biz Connect?

It’s a group of local business agencies who are working together to help connect local businesses and entrepreneurs with potential economic opportunities generated by Bermuda hosting the 35th America’s Cup.

The extent of Bermuda’s short and long-term economic success will depend on how well our community predicts our visitors’ needs and how creative we are in meeting them.  This is our moment to shine.

  • Express interest in providing your services and/or products to our America’s Cup visitors
  • Express interest in being listed in The 35th America’s Cup Local Business Directory
