“Jamaica is a place known throughout the world as the birthplace of reggae, and Ziggy Marley is a major contributor to keeping this reputation alive. Given the success we have enjoyed in the past as a result of our relationship with Ziggy, we were eager partnering again this summer,” noted Donnie Dawson, Deputy Director of Tourism – Sales at the Jamaica Tourist Board. “Ziggy continues to blaze a trail and is a great ambassador not just for reggae music but for Jamaica.”
Travel agents have not been left out of the action as the JTB is offering them an opportunity to see Ziggy Marley live in concert in their local city. To qualify for this offer, Jamaica Travel Specialists must book at least three trips to Jamaica between now and August 24th.
