The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) recently rewarded its top selling Jamaica Travel Agent Specialists with a three-night getaway that included tours, world-class dining, shopping and more. As part of JTB’s One Love Rewards Program, the top 50 agents from the United States, Canada and the UK were flown to Jamaica and given the royal treatment at Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa in Montego Bay. The vacation concluded with a special “All White Affair” gala where the top selling agents were presented with artwork specially designed by noted Jamaican artist Everald Powell. Minister Bartlett, in bringing greetings, lauded the group for their significant contribution to the island’s tourist industry. He noted that as a group, they helped the destination achieve what has been a record breaking year, noting that between January and October of 2016, Jamaica had earnings totaling US$2 billion, an increase of 5.7 percent over the same period last year. Total Room Nights booked by the Top 50 agents was nearly 115,000, which earned the island in the region of US$25 million.
