Buckhead will play host this week to visitors from the British island of Bermuda, its sister community, the Buckhead Coalition announced on Aug. 29.
It’s a follow up to the visit Buckhead leaders took to the island three months ago. The two communities are sharing information about their common interests in both business and civic programs, the coalition said in a press release.

Officials from Bermuda visiting Buckhead from August 30 to Sept. 1 are Patrice K. Minors, Minister of Business Development and Tourism; Charles Gosling, mayor of Hamilton; Stephen Todd, president of the Chamber of Commerce, and Travis Gilbert, assistant financial secretary in the Ministry of Finance, the press release said.

Coalition President Sam Massell said in a press release that the visit would generate economic development.

“Our nonprofit organization doesn’t have grant money or other material incentives, but we strive to build a brand that makes Buckhead the ‘address of choice’ for businesses and individuals … and it works,” Massell said in the press release.
