2016 Presidents’ Message
Presidents - JMA and JEA
Showcasing Jamaica’s Best since 1971!
In 2014, Expo Jamaica was touted in the media as “Herculean”, “Jamaican Excellence” “High Quality“ “Beautiful” and “A Major Success”; rightfully so as we believe our event has become the standard bearer of excellence, innovation and the perfect platform to showcase the very best of Jamaican-made. Ever since the 2010 rebranding to “Expo Jamaica” several changes to the show have taken place and now, in a landscape where varied types of expositions are present, Expo Jamaica will be reinventing itself again.
April 14 -17, 2016, is the date for our next staging under the theme “The Business Hub of the Caribbean” now under two roofs – The National Indoor Sports Centre and soon to be refurbished National Arena. On display will be our Expo Jamaica Farmers’ Market, Experience Jamaica, exquisite Food Court and more exhibitions with over three hundred (300) displays across twelve (12) sectors which effectively means more variety.
The Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association (JMA) and the Jamaica Exporters’ Association (JEA) continue to take pleasure in this partnership to host a trade show experience like no other Caribbean expo affords, to showcase the innovation, versatility and utility of all things Jamaican. This year’s theme sees a forging of national significance as both manufacturers and buyers connect with the Government’s mission for an efficient logistics centered economy.
With the steady increases in the country’s macroeconomic stability, positive ratings by the international ratings agencies, a stronger connectivity with the Jamaican diaspora and the demand for products and services made locally, as the productive sector, we see it fit to continue one of the best opportunities for buyers to see a showcase of what Jamaica really has to offer through Expo Jamaica. After all, as a top ranked brand, our island has untapped potential waiting to be unearthed.
We invite you to witness the breathtaking view of our exhibition with varied sectors on display and invite you to pause, taking in the moments that make you proud to support industries which will create jobs, earn foreign exchange, deepen intra-regional trade, build new trade networks and routes into global export markets and above all, continue to reinforce the power and strength of Brand Jamaica, excellence in action.
On behalf of everyone, we wish for you a warm welcome to buyers, exhibitors, partners, media and consumers to the 2016 Expo Jamaica Experience.
