With its tropical locale, array of accommodations and wide selection of activities, Jamaica has always been a top Caribbean choice for the Meeting and Incentive market.
Recent developments on the island have perfectly poised the destination for further success. At the peak of these developments is the newly opened, 57,000 square-foot Montego Bay Convention Centre, which boasts state-of-the-art facilities and solidifies the island as a leader in the category. The centre is suited to host banquets, conferences, conventions and trade shows and is located near Sangster International Airport.
Jamaica increased its room capacity to over 30,000 within the last few years. With the addition of new properties, the Meeting and Incentive sector is stronger to support events of any size, ranging from large to intimate.
New accommodation offerings include two Secret Resorts & Spa properties in Montego Bay and three Iberostar properties. This is in addition to the Round Hill Hotel, the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel, Half Moon, The Ritz Carlton and the Hilton Rose Hall.
“The MICE market is constantly evolving and the country has invested to ensure that Jamaica stays a step ahead,” said Myrtle Dwyer, director of sales and marketing at Glamour Destination Management, which has just increased its fleet of luxury vehicles with the purchase of Kinglong coaches and Mercedes Benz Sprinter.
“We took the decision to expand as well, as it is very important that we not only anticipate the needs of our clients, but we surpass their requests with modern and luxury vehicles, state-of-the-art equipments combined with unique, budget friendly and truly Jamaican programs”, said Dwyer.
