In its continued effort to strengthen linkages and increase business between the tourism industry and local suppliers of goods and services from other sectors, the Tourism Linkages Network is collaborating with the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA), the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA) and other partner entities to host its annual Tourism Linkages Speed Networking event. Numerous hotels and local businesses will participate in the venture.
It will entail a series of fifteen-minute meetings throughout the day between executives of supplier companies and managers of properties, restaurants, attractions and other tourism entities. It will enable them to place orders as well as discuss contracts, prices and other areas of interest with the producers and suppliers of a range of critical products and services used by the tourism industry.
