Title: Jamaica Tourist Board USA Marketing Plan Winter 20082009

Jamaica Tourist Board USA Marketing PlanWinter
  • The key strategy to be implemented in the
    upcoming fall/spring calendar (2008/2009) to
    motivate increased interest in the destination
    will be to create a more effective and efficient
    methodology designed to generate and motivate
    consumer interest in the destination. The
    strategy will apply more aggressive sales
    campaigns, ramped-up public relations activities
    and a more targeted advertising approach that
    will reach consumers with the ability and
    motivation to travel.
  • With this in mind, the attached documents will
    detail sales, promotional and advertising
    activities for the upcoming six-month period
    ending March 31, 2009. The documents include
    innovative new approaches that will sustain and
    generate attention particularly as it relates to
    direct interaction with consumers. For example,
    we see a campaign directed to the popular Costco
    outlets consumers (a total of 51 stores) across
    the United States which began on September 19 and
    will end on October 18, 2008. At these in-store
    outlets, a Jamaica Tourist Board representative
    will staff a booth alongside an in-house Costco
    travel agent to present the public with the many
    existing and new attractions and facilities that
    the destination offers. (The series began in
    Yorba Linda, California and will end in St. Louis
    Park, Minnesota.)

Overview contd.
  • We recognize the many challenges in todays
    marketplace not the least of which is the reality
    of the present-day economic conditions and the
    reality of weathering the present conditions
    given the environment of hysterical media houses
    anxious to predict a gloom and doom scenario
    which triggers and sustains panic conditions.
    (Examples, Travel Weeklys prediction that,
    Hotel occupancy and revenue expected to fall in
    09, as well as many of The Wall Street
    Journal articles predicting layoffs in the
    travel industry as well as private enterprises -
    see article on Hewlett-Packard to Lay Off
    24,600 , and an article predicting Airlines
    Plan Big Job Cuts After Holiday. Nonetheless,
    we believe that Jamaica is in the best position
    possible to maintain interest among the
    travelling public given the favorable positioning
    in the United States which includes geographical
    location, its well-known developed and attractive
    hospitality industry, and high profile standing
    in the marketplace. Competitive destinations
    have also stepped-up their activities as well as
    supplementing their budgets to meet the
    challenges Hawaii has recently added a 12
    million advertising supplement to their present
    budget as was recently reported in Travel

Overview contd.
  • One of the more positive indications for Jamaica
    is the announcement that American Airlines,
    beginning December 18, 2008, will increase its
    frequency from Dallas/Fort Worth International
    Airport (DFW) to MBJ, offering daily flights on a
    Boeing 738 aircraft. In addition, American
    Airlines will inaugurate non-stop seasonal air
    service from Chicagos OHare Airport to Montego
    Bay beginning January 31, 2009. The flight will
    depart at 8.30 a.m. CST and will arrive MBJ at
    1.25 p.m. EST. The service will operate daily,
    except Tuesday and Wednesday using a B-757
    aircraft (188 seats including 20-first class

  • We recommend that partners share media buy on
    radio and print media. Partner marketing (co-op
    advertising) should share the cost of the
    marketing plan. It is this approach that is
    recommended at this time to cast a wide net in
    the US travel market, to reach all the niches
    served by our network of air seats.
