As Jamaica’s culture and offerings are showcased on the global stage at World Expo 2020 Dubai, the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) — through the Entrepreneurship and Innovation in Tourism Student Competition — is offering an opportunity for up to three students to travel to Dubai, UAE to experience the World Expo 2020 from February 14-19, 2022. The student trip will coincide with Jamaica National Day on February 18, 2022.
The competition has two categories. There is the pitch competition for tertiary students under the theme, ‘Jamaica Makes it Move: The case for diversifying Jamaica’s tourism sector’. There is also an essay competition for secondary students under the theme ‘Expo 2020 Dubai: The Case for Diversifying Jamaica’s Tourism Sector.’
The initiative is in keeping with the thrust of the JTB’S Tourism Awareness Unit to enhance activities and programming geared towards attracting promising students to the industry.
“I am proud that we have taken this bold step to show students the many opportunities available within tourism. This competition presents an excellent opportunity for bright young minds to think innovatively towards tourism and entrepreneurship,” said Donovan White Director of Tourism.
