The Jamaica Tourist Board: Facilitating Doing Business in Jamaica

The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) Groups and Conventions team is committed to helping visitors with all aspects of their meeting, convention or incentive program. As their partner, the JTB not only promises to make events pleasurable and memorable, we will also provide a host of services designed to ensure every stage of the planning process and all aspects of the visit go well.

The island has accommodations to suit groups of all sizes. We guide visitors through site inspections and airline selections, banqueting services and entertainment choices, business centres and ground transportation. If desired, we’ll also throw in a few suggestions for exciting tours and attractions.

Visitors are encouraged to submit a Request for Proposal (RFP). With this RFP, the outlined needs will be communicated to qualified industry suppliers to facilitate a competitive bidding process, helping visitors to receive the best product for the best price. We will even provide a range of promotional materials including destination information brochures, customised shells for overprinting, posters, point-of-purchase displays, CDs and DVDs – all designed to support the programme.

In addition, should visitors wish to make their events that much more special by including material and equipment, the Jamaica Tourist Board is happy to assist with the application for a waiver of customs duties and bonds with the Ministry of Finance.

The JTB provides a wealth of information from start to finish, ensuring a smooth process for event organisers on island. From entry requirements to local travel, banks and currency, visitors can contact the board for assistance from knowledgeable tourism officials, with decades of experience in the business of working in and for the Home of All Right.
