With a month to go before Jamaica's hosting of the 19th Caribbean Media Exchange (CMEx) on Sustainable Tourism, the event is evoking great interest from top-level media from across the region, North America and Europe who wish to be part of the discussions regarding Caribbean's primary industry. Organizers have revealed that inquiries are still being received from journalists, well past the deadline for submission of fellowship and scholarship applications.

The conference will take place in Jamaica's business capital, Kingston, from September 30 to October 4, 2010. The event has also attracted interest from a number of groups and individuals dealing in agri-tourism, faith-based and other tourism linkage initiatives.

The CMEx fall meeting will be held under the theme "Tourism: Linkages for Growth," and will include strong representation of the Caribbean Diaspora in North America, which is a key area of focus. The rapidly growing multi-billion dollar faith tourism market and the expanding sports tourism market will also be discussed at the conference.

"This conference presents an ideal forum for us to work together with our various stakeholders to strengthen the existing linkages and forge new alliances," said John Lynch, Director of Tourism and Chairman of the Jamaica Tourist Board. "We look forward to an inspiring exchange of ideas, and to determining the best way forward to support tourism throughout the Caribbean region."

Jamaica’s tourism industry is one of the biggest contributors to the country’s economy. Every year, the island welcomes more than one million visitors to its shores. Catering to their Jamaica accommodation needs are a wide array of Jamaica villas and cottages as well as Jamaica apartments ideally located near the sea or within walking distance of the attractions in towns such as Ocho Rios.
