Advisors from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario flew to Jamaica with WestJet Vacations and stayed at Jewel Paradise Cove, Hilton Rose Hall and Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall. The group also conducted site inspections at Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort and Spa and Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall.
The five-day trip gave agents the chance to enjoy a wide variety of attractions near Playa’s Montego Bay properties. The itinerary included climbing Jamaica’s iconic Dunn’s River Falls, a tour of Rose Hall Great House, shopping along Main Street Rose Hall, and sampling authentic jerk cuisine at Scotchies and ice cream at Devon House.
Ahead of their return flight, the agents were treated to VIP airport services from Club MoBay and spent time enjoying the brand-new 11,000-square-foot departure lounge at Sangster International Airport.
“This unique FAM trip offered a great balance and gave advisors the chance to really immerse themselves in all that Jamaica has to offer,” said Emma Madsen, JTB Business Development Manager – Western Canada. “Playa was able to fully showcase their Jamaican resorts while the JTB gave agents a chance to experience local attractions, culture and food close to the properties.”
The group of travel advisors were joined by Emma Madsen, Business Development Manager – Western Canada, Jamaica Tourist Board; Lynne White, General Manager and Co-President, Escapes.ca; Chris Rollinson, Co-President, Escapes.ca; and Freddie Marsh, Business Development Manager – Western Canada, Playa Resorts and Hotels.
“Our team was very grateful for the opportunity to have an exclusive FAM trip hosted by the Jamaica Tourist Board, Playa Resorts and WestJet Vacations,” said Rollingson.
“The agents were very impressed with the hospitality, service and quality of the resorts and excursions we visited in Jamaica. Our hosts did a wonderful job of providing very valuable information and I can confidently say, our team’s ability to sell this wonderful destination has increased tenfold.”
