KINGSTON — The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) will be hosting its first-ever Virtual Product Showcase, an exclusive one-day-only destination experience for Canadian retail agents.
Taking place July 20 from 1-3 p.m. ET on Zoom, the Showcase will include destination presentations from the BDM team and suppliers as well as breakout rooms where agents can connect with resort representatives, tour operators, attractions, airlines and ground services. Participating suppliers include Air Canada Vacations, WestJet, Sunwing Vacations, TravelBrands, Ocean Hotels, Blue Diamond Resorts, Tryall Club and Transat Tours.
In addition to learning about the latest destination news and resources, including updates on the Jamaica Travel Specialist program, participants will have multiple chances to win complimentary hotel stays, island tours and more prizes.
“We look forward to connecting with our valued travel agent partners this summer for our first-ever Virtual Product Showcase,” said Angella Bennett, Regional Director, Canada, Jamaica Tourist Board. “While we wish we could meet in person, this engaging and interactive platform will provide us with a unique opportunity to bring together agents from across the country to participate in an afternoon of destination education, networking, games and incredible prizes.”
Travel agents are invited to pre-register for the Jamaica Virtual Product Showcase at visitjamaica.com/canada/showcase.
To further keep Jamaica top of mind among travel agents, the JTB team will also be hosting two seasonally-inspired giveaways this summer:
