The Jamaica Tourist Board will be the headline destination of the new Caribbean Showcase in London on 23 September.
Created by the Caribbean Tourism Organisation UK & Europe (CTO Chapter), the event will bring buyers and suppliers together and provide the opportunity to grow business and learn more about the region.
Hosted at the Leonardo Royal London St Paul’s Hotel between 9am and 10pm, the aim of the event is to provide a full day of business meetings and networking, culminating in a drinks reception and hosted three-course dinner.
Over 100 people from accommodation representatives, tourist offices, airlines, media partners, travel agents and tour operators will attend.
Among updates the tourist board will highight include extra Virgin Atlantic services from Heathrow to Montego Bay via Nassau twice a week and a new direct Virgin Atlantic flight from Manchester to Montego Bay, launching this November, which will operate three times a week during the winter season.
Regional Director UK & Northern Europe Elizabeth Fox said: “This is an exciting time for Jamaica, there is a lot of development taking place and the increase in airlift is welcomed given the burgeoning interest in the island. Jamaica is a cultural icon across the Caribbean and the Caribbean Showcase is a great opportunity to remind buyers as to why we are such a diverse and unique destination.”
