From all across Canada and the United States, Bestbuy Shareholders and Suppliers gathered on the island of Bermuda for Bestbuy’s annual ‘Buy and Sell’. It was held September 17th through the 20th at the fabulous Fairmont Southampton. Although the week started with a bit of wind and rain, it finished with some of that spectacular sunshine that Bermuda is known for.

The golf day at the Port Royal Golf Course was well received even with a brief time-out for a rain delay, on the world class golf course and its trademark spectacular views. There was a Gosling’s Bermuda Rum-tasting tour for the non-golfers, also with rave reviews as it included a delicious luncheon after on the waterfront at celebrity chef restaurant ‘Marcus’. Both of these events were held as Bestbuy’s ‘Sick Kids Hospital’ charity events, which brought forth a substantial amount of money for the charity.

The Suppliers and Bestbuy Shareholders spent Tuesday and Wednesday in their unique one-on-one business meetings. Tuesday evening was chosen for the Group Dinner, which included cocktails, a sumptuous dinner and dancing to live music, was held at the Fairmont’s lovely Mid-Ocean Amphitheatre. The Buy and Sell finished up on Wednesday and most of the Suppliers and Shareholders alike started packing for home, while others stayed for a few more days in paradise, after yet another very successful ‘Buy and Sell’.
