As today’s traveler seeks to immerse in the local culture, they want to connect with locals and discover a feeling of self-fulfillment through micro-moments they experience in a new destination. This summer, the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) launched its Join Me in Jamaica digital video campaign to connect travelers to the people of Jamaica and showcase the authentic experiences the island offers.
To further promote the authentic experiences in Jamaica, the JTB is inviting consumers to explore the sights, sounds and flavors of the beautiful island, through a one-month long promotion where travelers can enter to win a specially-curated Join Me in Jamaica vacation.
The Join Me in Jamaica campaign is a series of 90-second videos featuring local celebrities and friends of Jamaica sharing unique stories about their profession, love of their homeland and what makes it a great place to visit. Each video was created using the unscripted responses as narrative and accompanied by the spectacular visuals related to their natural surroundings.
