Jamaica’s capital city was the center stage for one of the Caribbean’s most popular tourism events as the 18th Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX) which saw a record-high 275 suppliers. Also, 103 delegates representing 71 buyer companies attended the three-day event at the Hilton Kingston Hotel. This year, some 150 travel agents from the United States and Canada also attended the travel trade show and met first hand with suppliers.
Director of Tourism Basil Smith said in a written release, “Kingston is always an exciting place to visit. It provides rich and varied cultural offerings from music to theatre to galleries, and can satisfy any gastronomic taste.” Delegates were also treated to a preview of Caribbean Fashion Week, which takes place at the National Indoor Sports Centre in Kingston, June 11-16.
