Canadian travel advisors can join a one-day-only virtual destination immersion experience, to hear destination updates and connect with travel suppliers at the Jamaica Tourist Board’s (JTB) first ever Virtual Product Showcase on 20JUL from 1 to 3 p.m. EST.
The Zoom event will feature destination presentations from the team and suppliers, as well as breakout rooms where agents can connect with resort representatives, tour operators, attractions, airlines and ground services.
Air Canada Vacations, WestJet, Sunwing Vacations, TravelBrands, Ocean Hotels, Blue Diamond Resorts, Tryall Club, and Transat Tours are among the suppliers that will be participating in the event.
Participants will also have a chance to win prizes such as complimentary hotel stays, island tours, and more.
The JTB’s in-market representatives and island-based sales teams will also be on hand to provide attendees with the latest destination news and resources, and to share updates on the Jamaica Travel Specialist program.

This summer, the JTB team will also host two seasonally inspired giveaways:

Participants can submit photos of their backyard, balcony or patio decked out in tropical décor to the official contest page here. The top three entrants will be selected to receive a Jamaican-themed barbecue prize pack, perfect for summertime entertaining.
- Jamaica Short Story contest (open until 15AUG): Travel advisors are encouraged to take a trip down memory lane and write a short story about their most unforgettable Jamaican memories and experiences for a chance to win one of three cash prizes. Agents can upload their creative and compelling island-inspired short stories (1,000 words or less) here.
