The Montego Bay Convention Centre Cops 2022 World Travel Awards

Montego Bay, Jamaica

Since its inception, the Montego Bay Convention Centre has been the ultimate venue for conventions, trade shows, weddings, banquets and theatre-style conferences in Jamaica. The venue secured the top award as the Caribbean’s Leading Meetings and Conference Centre at the 2022 World Travel Awards for the twelfth time.

The World Travel Awards is a premier travel and tourism industry awards event that had its genesis in 1993, with the aim of rewarding and celebrating excellence in all sectors of the industry.

Interim General Manager, Mureen James, shares how important this win is for the centre as “this recognition comes at a great time, as it’s proven testament to the resilience of our team. Coming off the heels of the pandemic meant we had to craft innovative ways to sustain the business.” She continued by confirming that “we’re looking at bringing more attention to some of our product offerings, which also include using the venue as the perfect wedding venue.” James further stated that a big part of the company’s decisions will continue to be guided by data and insights from their ongoing campaigns. While the centre was also nominated for the World’s Leading Meetings and Conference Centre 2022, James is hopeful of securing the award for 2023.
