JAPEX 2018- Opportunities Abound !

The JAMAICA Hotel and Tourist Association ( JHTA) is proud to welcome all delegates to the Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX) 2018, Jamaica's Premier tourism marketplace.

From September 23-25, 2018, we will provide the business- conducive atmosphere for our members to meet, collaborate and conduct business with wholesalers, tour operators and travel agents. It is also a golden opportunity for our partners in Jamaica's agriculture and manufacturing sectors as we continue to integrate our suppliers and showcase valuable tourism linkages at JAPEX.

Over the past decade, we have built on the JAPEX product which is now a perfect mix of exposition and workshops, business and leisure. This year, our workshops will address critical topics such as marketing small properties, interior decorating, energy efficiency and revenue management, key areas germane to running a successful enterprise.

Of course, It won't be all business as through our Welcome Reception and various social events we will showcase the music and culture for which our island is so famous and which are integral elements of Brand JAMAICA.

Representatives of all of our JHTA Chapters will be on hand to present their areas- Kingston, Portland, the South Coast, Ocho Rios, Montego Bay, Negril- giving updates on new and refurbished or expanded properties, new attractions and other facilities that are contributing to enhanced hospitality and tourism on the island.

From EP to all inclusive hotels, beach resorts to city and mountain accommodations, we have a lot to tell and show and look forward to welcoming everyone to JAPEX 2018 . Opportunities abound!

Omar Robinson. President JAMAICA Hotel and Tourist Association.
