The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) will host a first-of-its-kind destination travel event when the Jamaica Travel Expo comes to Toronto this fall. More than 2,000 people are expected to attend the free destination showcase and exhibition, which takes place at the Pearson Convention Centre on Saturday, November 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Canadians planning a winter getaway to Jamaica’s sunny shores will have an exclusive opportunity to meet with travel experts and learn about the island’s top accommodations, attractions and tour operators. From high-end boutique hotels and family friendly resorts to iconic adventure parks and hidden gems, dozens of Jamaican tourism representatives and exhibitors will come together for this special one-day-only event to help travellers plan their dream island getaway.
Jamaica Travel Expo attendees will be treated to a variety of island-inspired activities, free destination swag, live entertainment, and hourly all-inclusive vacation prize draws throughout the show – including a very special grand prize giveaway valued at $5,000 courtesy of redtag.ca.
Those looking to enjoy authentic Jamaican experiences can sample delicious Caribbean cuisine, relax at on-site massage chairs, and groove along to the island rhythms of the Arsenals Ska Band. Brides and grooms who are considering getting married in Jamaica will have the chance to meet with destination wedding specialists and check out the latest bridal styles during two fashion shows by CJ Entertainment.
The free event for all ages will feature a variety of kid-friendly activities such as a treasure hunt, face-painting, and 360-degree island photo booth.
