A GROUP of elite travel agents in Jamaica for a three-day Romance travel forum focusing on destination weddings and honeymoon business spent an enjoyable evening at Couples Sans Souci last Wednesday.

With Sans Souci being one of the sponsors of the forum, the 180 romance travel experts, along with 80 suppliers from the United States and Canada, were allowed to relax and unwind over dinner and a fabulous show that included the Serenity Band.

"This event is being put on by Travel Show Marketing Group. This is the third event that they've had - the first year they did it in Cancum (Mexico), last year it was in the Dominican Republic, and this year they brought the event to Jamaica," explained Sharie Gordon, director of retail sales and customer care at Couples Resorts.

Here are the highlights.
