Jamaica has been recognised with six awards in the prestigious gold and silver categories at the 2021 Travvy Awards, further establishing its place as one of the world’s leading tourism destinations. The Jamaica Tourist Board accepted the awards at the 7th annual Travvy gala held on November 11 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The destination was honoured with four gold statuettes for:
- ‘Best Destination – Caribbean’
- ‘Best Culinary Destination – Caribbean’
- ‘Best Tourism Board – Caribbean’
- ‘Best Travel Agent Academy Program’
Along with two silver statuettes for:
- ‘Best Wedding Destination – Caribbean’
- ‘Best Honeymoon Destination’
“We are truly grateful to receive multiple awards at such an influential event,” said Director of Tourism, Donovan White. “Our tourist board works extremely hard to provide the highest level of support to our valued travel trade partners, as well as top tier service to all travellers visiting the destination, so this acknowledgement by Travel Pulse and its readers is truly a proud moment for us.”
The 7th annual Travvy Awards, presented by Travel Pulse, now part of the NorthStar Travel Group, recognised the top suppliers, destinations, technology providers and attractions, as selected by travel agents across the industry. Nearly 100,000 votes were cast across multiple categories by travel agent readers of Travel Pulse. The selections made by participating advisors reflect the destinations they believe provide outstanding service to travellers.
Jamaica remains open for travel and continues to welcome visitors safely. Its health and safety protocols were among the first to receive the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Safe Travels recognition that allowed the destination to safely reopen to travel in June 2020. Since then, the island has successfully welcomed over one million visitors to its shores.
