what's new at the BCSI
Refreshed and Refocused
The BCSI has taken the opportunity this year to refresh its brand. This process has been so much more than modernising our logo and brand colours. We have been working to refocus the mindset of our internal stakeholders and recommit to the core of our purpose: serving our members. We aim to renew our relationship with our members, work together to meet their needs, source opportunities for growth and ultimately, move the services sector forward.
Expo 2020 Dubai
The BCSI will be representing its members as a part of the Barbados team at Expo 2020 Dubai, running from October 2021 to March 2022. Our Branding and Communications Consultant will be on the ground in Dubai in October and November to forge connections that will benefit our members and promote them through our website.
