ATLANTA, GA – The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) is continuing its efforts to promote Jamaica as the ideal location for destination weddings, honeymoons and romance. The JTB participated in the recently held Georgia Bridal Show at Cobb Galleria in Atlanta to grow its market share in this lucrative niche market as signs of a potential recovery are on the horizon.
Tamara Christie, JTB’s Business Development Manager, Southeast USA, provided updates to attendees about the existing travel protocols currently in place for travel to Jamaica. Among the resorts showcased at the event were Moon Palace Jamaica, Iberostar, Couples Resorts and Palladium Resorts. Patrons visiting the Jamaica Booth were treated to exciting giveaways and surprises. Jamaica also partnered with Honeymoon's Inc, a leading Jamaica Travel Specialist travel advisor to book trips to Jamaica for bridal show attendees.
The Georgia Bridal Show has been the premier bridal show in the South since 1990 and features national wedding brands, companies, wedding planners and is a one-stop-shopping event bringing together all the wedding professionals needed to design a one-of-a-kind day. With the show's mission to showcase the best so brides can make their most desired dream wedding come true, Jamaica positioned herself as the dream wedding and honeymoon destination.
This in-market event follows closely on the heels of the Jamaica Tourist Board’s launch of ‘My Heart Beats JA’, a microsite featuring romantic activities and wedding ideas, to encourage travellers to visit Jamaica for all their romance desires. Content across the microsite is divided into three categories: romantic getaways, getting engaged and ‘I do’. The site addresses consumer trends, including more intimate, private destination weddings, and options for romantic escapes.
