Jamaica tourism trade show postponed

The Jamaica Product Exchange (Japex) annual tourism industry trade show, which was scheduled to take place Nov. 8-10 as a hybrid in-person/virtual event, has been rescheduled to early 2022.

“Japex has traditionally been an in-person event, however the global pandemic had moved us to change its structure to a hybrid event,” said Donovan White, director of tourism. “However, it is our hope that by delaying the event, we may be able to generate robust in-person attendance for Japex when it takes place early next year.”

White said that demand for Jamaica’s tourism product remains strong, and “we are confident that our Jamaica Cares health and safety protocols, including our Resilient Corridors along the north and south coasts, will ensure another successful event in the near future.”

Overseas partners, including tour operators, travel advisors and travel media are geared up to resume negotiations with Jamaican suppliers, according to White.
