The voters have spoken ... and the Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) was named ‘Favourite Tourist Board – Caribbean’ at Baxter Travel Media’s annual Agents’ Choice Awards Gala last month.

More than 6,500 Canadian travel agents cast their ballots, bringing the coveted award to the JTB.

“Jamaica Tourist Board Canada’s dynamic and dedicated team works tirelessly to provide valuable resources and product knowledge to our travel agent partners,” said Director of Tourism Donovan White. “Building mutually beneficial relationships with these key industry partners have been integral to their success. In return, the agents passionately sell Destination Jamaica, ensuring Canadians come back to the island year after year.”

Baxter Travel Media is the publisher of Canadian Travel Press and Travel Courier, two of the most successful travel trade publications in Canada. The Baxter Travel Media Awards is the largest travel agent survey of its kind in Canada. From January-April 2019, thousands of travel agents nationwide voted for industry suppliers in more than 40 categories, including the highly sought after Favourite Tourist Board – Caribbean.’
