The Jamaica Tourist Board’s Marcia Sinclair, District Sales Manager Northeast USA, was a featured presenter at the 16th New York Times Travel Show (NYTTS) in January. Her presentation happened during the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s Focus on the Caribbean seminar.
Ms. Sinclair highlighted the destination’s many events and festivals being celebrated this year, including Reggae Month and Bob Marley celebrations, the heavily buzzed about Buju Banton concert, the Jamaica Food & Drink Festival and Rastafari Rootz Festival.
To provide a taste of the authentic experiences to be gained from these events, Braata Productions performed traditional Caribbean folk songs that brought attendees to their feet.
The New York Times Travel Show is the ultimate travel and tourism event in North America with close to 600 exhibitors from across the globe. Over 30,000 consumers and travel professionals attend the three-day weekend extravaganza in hopes to be informed and excited about the next destination they plan to visit. The travel and trade conference also provided the Jamaica Tourist Board with an opportunity to promote the destination’s alluring accommodations and exciting attractions portfolio.
