The 2020 edition of Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX), dubbed JAPEX Live 2020, will be held virtually on 09NOV to 10NOV, 2020.
The Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA) and the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) will speak to travel trade partners, providing an opportunity for leading suppliers of Jamaican tourism to meet with travel wholesalers and tour operators from all over the world.
Attendees will have the chance to virtually explore the destination’s tourism regions, and participate in a networking lounge while immersing themselves in destination news and information. Additionally, there will be a Prize Center with regular giveaways throughout the experience.
“JAPEX has always been a marquee event on Jamaica’s tourism calendar and we’re looking forward to another successful show,” said Donovan White, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism.
“While we are unable to meet in-person this year, we have an exciting opportunity to engage virtually, providing access for our delegates to learn about new destination offerings, hear about how our protocols have been implemented to keep residents and visitors safe, as well as secure new deals, positively impacting and strengthening our tourist industry.”
There will be elements of a traditional tradeshow including a keynote presentation by Jamaica’s Minister of Tourism, the Hon. Edmund Bartlett, an interactive Google map that will take advisors to different resort areas, and videos that offer interactive features such as sharable content and chat functionality.
