Jamaica Travel Specialists in All Markets Set to Benefit 


NEW YORK, NY – September 27, 2019 – The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) is ramping up its series of seminars this fall targeting travel specialists in all markets. The series takes the form of a trade show followed by dinner and presentation by the JTB’s Business Development Managers who provide an update to attendees on Jamaica’s tourism performance, the product and other important tourism developments.

“The Jamaica Travel Specialists have played an important part in the success we now enjoy as a destination and the seminars this fall will target over 2,500 travel agents in the Northeast, Midwest, Southeast and West/Southwest,” noted Donnie Dawson, Jamaica’s Deputy Director of Tourism, The Americas. “We appreciate the work they do in selling Jamaica and believe it is important to keep them updated on what’s new and what’s coming up, so they are armed with the latest information and help keep Jamaica top of mind with their clients.”

The series will resume in the Northeast, Jamaica’s top market for stopover arrivals this year and the Midwest after a short break, to be followed by the West/Southwest before culminating in the Southeast.
