New Delhi, 10 December 2021: Jamaica Tourist Board successfully concluded an engaging tourism seminar, specially organized for DNATA Travel Dubai, at the World Expo 2020, on 22nd November 2021.  

The seminar highlighted the reasons Jamaica is one of the most preferred destinations for leisure as well as corporate travel, emphasizing the varied tourism products and safety precautions available at the destination.

The purpose of this seminar was to engage and strengthen the business relationship between Jamaica and the Middle East region involving DNATA, the largest tour operator in the Middle East, as well as to empower the travel trade professionals to be better able to sell vacation packages to Jamaica. This engaging session also led DNATA to establish a well-informed cadre of travel trade professionals on the Jamaican tourism product.

Being a megahit session for travel trade professionals from DNATA, the seminar was a fun-packed program including information on Jamaican hospitality, leisure, entertainment activities and business opportunities. Torrance Lewis, District Sales Manager, Jamaica Tourist Board, London enlightened the attendees on Jamaica’s new strategies and plans for strengthening ties with the Middle East region.

Expressing the vision, Donovan White, Director of Tourism of Jamaica said, “Prior to the pandemic, Jamaica had a good promotional value in the Middle East as well as India. We expect it will take some time to regain the footfall. But we are actively working on opening up the market with many major airlines for developing new routes to travel to Jamaica and make the travel from UAE and India even more seamless.”

The Dubai Expo 2020 is the first mega-event post-pandemic which is truly global in scope and is helping overcome international reluctance to travel. Destination Jamaica aims to position itself as the most desirable and safe post-pandemic destination for a vacation and connect with people and decision-makers from all over the world, present in the Expo, to put Jamaica top of mind as a destination of choice for travellers.
