The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) has announced the appointment of John Woolcock as Manager, Groups and Conventions, in the JTB's Regional Office, USA (Miami)

“I am eager to take on the responsibilities of this new role and look forward to helping the destination grow its market share in groups and conventions,” said Woolcock in a written release. “With our award-winning Montego Bay Convention Centre in Montego Bay, combined with our wide array of accommodations and attractions, I believe Jamaica provides a great option for meeting and incentive planners looking for an ideal Caribbean venue.”
