Jamaica copped seven awards in the prestigious gold and silver categories for 2022 at the Travvy Awards. The categories in which the island did well ranged from weddings to food and the support provided to upcoming travel agents.
Representatives from the Jamaica Tourist Board accepted the awards at the 8th annual Travvy Awards gala that was held on November 3 at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina in Florida.
Jamaica was honoured with five gold statuettes for:
- ‘Best Wedding Destination – Overall’

- ‘Best Tourism Board – Caribbean’
- ‘Best Travel Agent Academy Program’
It also received two silver statuettes for:

“It is very gratifying for Jamaica to take home seven Travvy statuettes this year,” said Director of Tourism, Donovan White. “Our staff is deeply committed to providing our valued travel advisor partners with only the highest level of support, and receiving so many top awards by their vote is a welcome recognition for us.”
His enthusiasm was matched by Deputy Director of Tourism, The Americas, Donnie Dawson.
“This outstanding recognition by our valued travel advisors is a true testament to the hard work of our team members and the excellent relationship which continues within this group,” said Dawson. “It truly is an honour to be a part of the Jamaica Tourist Board team.”
The 8th annual Travvy Awards, produced by Travel Pulse and AGENTatHOME, recognised the top suppliers, destinations, hotels, cruise lines, airlines, tour operators, and more, as decided by those who know them best, the travel advisors.
