Sandals hosts Canadian agents on Jamaica-wide fam

MONTEGO BAY — A group of lucky travel agents are fresh off a week-long fam with Sandals Resorts that included visits to all seven Sandals resorts and two Beaches properties in Jamaica.

Taking place from Oct. 11-18, the fam welcomed 17 agents from across the Maritimes, Ontario and Alberta to showcase Sandals Resorts’ extensive product offering and recent refurbishments in their home island.

Agents were hosted by Meredith Hand, Business Development Manager, Atlantic Canada, who led the group on visits to all properties in Ocho Rios, Montego Bay, Negril and the South Coast. They also made stops at the Sandals Golf & Country Club in Ocho Rios and Grand Pineapple Negril.
