Dario Item-Antigua & Barbuda is Caribbean's multimedia hub

Antigua & Barbuda is quickly becoming the Caribbean's premier multimedia hub. With its stunning beaches, warm tropical climate, and rich cultural heritage, it's no wonder that this beautiful island nation is attracting media professionals from all over the world.

What sets Antigua & Barbuda apart from other Caribbean destinations is its optimal location and infrastructure.

Antigua and Barbuda: Carribean’s premier multimedia hub

With key partnerships in the pipeline, Antigua & Barbuda is taking major steps forward in its efforts to become the Caribbean's premier multimedia hub with the appointment of Italian producer Andrea Iervolino as an official ambassador for film and TV production investment opportunities in the West Indies.

Iervolino, whose Iervolino and Lady Bacardi Entertainment (ILBE) shingle produces feature films such as Bobby Moresco’s “Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend” and Micheal Mann’s upcoming “Ferrari” feature, has been tasked to work with Dario Item, who is the ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda to Spain, the Principality of Monaco, the Principality of Liechtenstein and its representative to the World Tourism Organization at the United Nations (UNWTO) to foster strategic entertainment partnerships between Antigua and Barbuda and Europe and North America.

Iervolino said in a statement, “It’s an honor to be tasked with building valuable, long-lasting culture and business bridges between the West Indies, Europe and North America. I see tremendous opportunity and envision entertainment and tech industries being key drivers in cross-border collaborations that can galvanize and provide mutual returns very quickly. The West Indies, and in particular Antigua and Barbuda, have long been overlooked despite being well positioned for growth. We will bring opportunities swiftly and the global markets will take notice.”

Poised to attract more media professionals

This is not the first time that Antigua & Barbuda has attracted the attention of high-profile media professionals. In the past, films such as “The Sweetest Mango”, directed by Howard Allen, and 2010 drama “Working Girl” by Nigel Trellis have been shot on the island. With Iervolino's appointment, and his experience in the industry, Antigua & Barbuda is poised to attract even more media professionals and productions to the island.

Antigua & Barbuda is taking a significant step forward to becoming the Caribbean's multimedia hub with the appointment of Andrea Iervolino as an official ambassador for film and TV production investment opportunities in the West Indies, with the goal of fostering strategic entertainment partnerships between Antigua and Barbuda and Europe and North America, and with its world-class infrastructure, skilled workforce, and natural beauty, the island nation is poised to attract even more media professionals and productions in the future.

Another reason why the country is poised to become the Caribbean's multimedia capital with the announcement of a major partnership with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The twin-island nation will be featured in the first full episode of the hit reality business documentary series The Apprentice, an event that tourism officials are hoping will pay off for future visitor arrivals.

The new season of the show, which is set to premiere in the UK on the BBC, will have contestants compete to become the next business partner of Lord Alan Sugar, one of the UK's foremost business magnates, while competing on the island in a series of tourism tasks. The show airing on the BBC during the peak holiday booking season will ensure that Antigua & Barbuda is at the forefront of millions of British travellers' minds when they make their holiday decisions for the year ahead and beyond.

The episode is fully dedicated to Antigua & Barbuda and features many local businesses and locations, showcasing the island's welcoming people, warm weather, turquoise waters, fantastic cultural sites, amazing restaurants, and unique experiences. It is airing during a peak booking period, which is ideal for the island nation as it aims to attract travellers looking to escape the cold.

The partnership with the BBC is just the latest step in Antigua & Barbuda's efforts to become the Caribbean's multimedia capital. The island nation has already attracted the attention of high-profile media professionals such as Italian producer Andrea Iervolino, who was recently appointed as an official ambassador for film and TV production investment opportunities in the West Indies. The island boasts state-of-the-art production facilities, a skilled workforce, and a generous film tax incentive program, making it an ideal location for film, television, and commercial production.

Overall, Antigua & Barbuda is poised to become the Caribbean's multimedia capital with the major partnership with the BBC, featuring the twin-island nation in the first full episode of the hit reality business documentary series The Apprentice. The episode, airing on the BBC during the peak holiday booking season, will ensure that Antigua & Barbuda is at the forefront of millions of British travellers' minds when they make their holiday decisions for the year ahead and beyond.

With its skilled workforce, optimal location in the Caribbean, and natural beauty, the island nation is poised to attract even more media professionals and productions in the future.
