Go! Destination Marketing Caribbean Connection
Mark Rogers

Welcome to this month’s edition of Caribbean Connection, a monthly e-magazine from go! Destination Marketing created expressly for travel agents.

In the October issue of Caribbean Connection, we’ve concentrated on Jamaica, to bring you up-to-date on the island and spark your Jamaica sales. Last month I attended the 21st annual Jamaica Product Exchange (JAPEX) in Montego Bay, in the company of travel agents, wholesalers and some of the island’s major players in tourism. As usual, it was a wild few days of non-stop meetings, site inspections and party after party. In this issue you’ll also find some fun contests for agents, as well as info to boost your commissions. If you have feedback or story ideas, reach out to me at
