The Jamaica Tourist Board will be the headline destination of the new Caribbean Showcase in London on Sept. 23. Jamaica, like many Caribbean destinations, has been badly hit by the Covid pandemic.
Created by the Caribbean Tourism Organisation UK & Europe, 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, the event provides 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 are registered to meet up.
The Jamaica Tourist Board will highlight increased Virgin Atlantic air services from London Heathrow to Montego Bay via Nassau twice a week and a new direct Virgin Atlantic flight from Manchester to Montego Bay, from November.
All UK travellers, including those aged 12 and over need to show proof of a negative Covid test performed by an accredited lab within three days of travelling and complete a simple travel authorisation form before they arrive, which is accessible there.
