Riu's Jamaica hotels launch their Jamaica 50 promotion

Travel agents across Jamaica recently gathered at the Riu Ocho Rios Jamaica hotel for a trade show style event to learn more of the launch of the Spanish hotel chain’s latest marketing campaign - Jamaica 50. Under the Jamaica 50 promotion, holidaymakers heading to the Caribbean island will have access to some of the most exclusive Jamaica deals as the hotel chain joins the local community in celebrating the island’s 50th year of independence.

The event was indicative of the effort Riu has put into promoting its Jamaica 50 programme as it seeks to celebrate with the local community as well as increase its visibility and improve on its reputation as the best hotel choice for travellers booking Jamaica holidays. Agents from some of the most popular spots for holidays in Jamaica including, Kingston, Mandeville, Ocho Rios and Montego Bay joined together in the event which was the first of its kind for Riu Jamaica with the agents having access to all four of its properties.

Ms Bennett stated the following of the event, “it's the first of its kind where we have them on one property, but we're exposing them to all four properties in a trade-show setting… So they have a 45-minute session with each representative of each hotel, where they explain the selling points of this hotel, the best features of the hotel and teach them how they want to sell Riu product”.

From the agents perspective the event appears to have been a success, Connie Lue the branch manager for Chin Yee’s Travel, New Lane stated, “the trade show has been great, although it's a big group it's very personalised. We learned a lot of information to sell the property so the experience has been good”. Ms Lue also noted that Riu room have proven to be very popular with her agency’s clientele, a fact which will undoubtedly come as music to the ears of the management at Riu.
