Expedia, Inc., the largest online travel company in the world, recognized Jamaica as one of its top producing partners in the Caribbean at Expedia’s annual Partner Appreciation event, which took place during the Caribbean Hotel & Tourism Association’s Caribbean Marketplace in Paradise Island, Bahamas.
“We’re pleased that our relationship with Expedia has produced significant benefits for the island and our hoteliers,” said John Lynch, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “We value our partnership with Expedia and will look for an even greater relationship this year as we continue to grow our visitor arrivals and occupancy figures.”
Honourees included Jamaica’s majestic Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort & Spa, which won for Top Independent Hotel Partner of the Year. Montego Bay’s Iberostar Grand Hotel Rose Hall received an award for Top Partners of the Year – Caribbean while both Sunset Beach Resort & Spa and the Royal Decameron Montego Beach accepted awards in the Top Room Night Producer in the Caribbean category. Additionally, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts, Caribbean was recognized as the Top Chain Partner of the Year.
According to Marco Tagliatti, Vice President of Lodging Supply for Latin America & Caribbean at Expedia, Inc., the winners are a good example of the results achieved when implementing Expedia’s packaging strategies. “We see a greater opportunity for hotels in the Caribbean to continue working with Expedia in offering dynamic packages through our channel, as they protect the properties’ rates while promoting longer average stays and booking windows,” he continued.
