The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) is inviting Canadian travel advisors to attend its live Virtual Product Showcase on 24NOV from 1 to 3 p.m. EST. The event is designed to educate, entertain, and inspire advisors, and will give attendees an opportunity to hear the latest destination updates from Jamaica, connect with travel suppliers, and enjoy island experiences from home. The JTB hosted its inaugural Virtual Product Showcase in JUL 2021.
Registration for Jamaica’s Fall Virtual Product Showcase is now open. Agents can sign up to participate for free at visitjamaica.com/canada/showcase.
“Our first Virtual Product Showcase attracted almost 500 attendees this summer and proved to be incredibly valuable for retail agents and travel suppliers. With that in mind, we are excited to bring back this successful engagement initiative for another one-day-only event this month,” said Angella Bennett, Regional Director, Canada, Jamaica Tourist Board. “Hosting this immersive destination update in a virtual setting allows us to connect with agents across the country simultaneously in an interactive way with a full afternoon of destination education, industry networking, and fun-filled games with great prizes.”
Jamaica’s Fall Virtual Product Showcase will feature new presentations from tour operators and travel suppliers, including Sunwing Vacations, Transat, WestJet Vacations, Swoop Airlines, Iberostar, H10 Hotels, RIU Hotels, and more. Agents can have a chance to connect directly with representatives from airlines, hotel and resort partners, attractions, and ground transportation services, in addition to the JTB’s on-island and in-market product teams. The afternoon event will also feature trivia games with a lineup of prizes up for grabs.
Destination Jamaica will also be launching a new after-hours social initiative for travel advisors, the first-ever virtual Jamaica Social Evening. Hosted on 18NOV from 7 to 8:30 p.m. EST, the online gathering will feature a variety of live entertainment options including a Jamaica-themed photo booth, tarot card readings, pub-style trivia, and musical bingo. The event is free to attend and agents are invited to register in advance at visitjamaica.com/canada/social.
“Destination Jamaica cares about the professional success of our travel advisor community, but we also enjoy mixing business with pleasure from time to time. That’s why we believe it is time to provide our valued partners with a bit of levity and fun,” explains Dan Hamilton, District Sales Manager, Canada, Jamaica Tourist Board. “This after-hours social night gives all of us at the JTB an opportunity to connect with agents, thank them for their continued support, and deliver some fun irie vibes during the workweek.”
