Tourism industry stakeholders in St. Ann are preparing for the staging of a trade fair to be held in the resort town of Ocho Rios from February 7 to 12.
The event is being organised by the Ocho Rios and Runaway Bay Chapter of the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA) in collaboration with the Port Authority of Jamaica.
“Most of our properties will be participating in the event,” said Vana Taylor, chairperson for the Chapter.”Our large hotels, attractions, villas and apartments will be participating and it is hoped that the tourists will become more exposed to our land products and seek to enjoy our attractions even more,” she told JIS News.
Meanwhile, she said that the week of the fair would be a busy one in terms of cruise ship arrivals, with eight port calls expected.
Scheduled to arrive are: Enchantment of the Seas on February 7; Imagination and Navigator of the Seas on February 8; Radiance of the Seas, February 9; Costa Atlantica and Triumph on February 10; Delphin on February 11 and Oceana on February 12.
Miss Taylor said that the Ocho Rios and Runaway Bay Chapter of the JHTA would be working hard to ensure positive growth in the tourism sector and appealed to the public to continue to show hospitality to the island’s visitors.
