The Jamaica Ministry of Tourism’s annual “Christmas in July” trade show is set to celebrate its tenth anniversary this year at its largest venue to date, the National Arena in Kingston, on July 11 and 12.

Tourism Minister, Hon. Edmund Bartlett, who will deliver the keynote address at the opening ceremony on Day 1, expressed his enthusiasm for the event.

“Christmas in July has become a cornerstone event in our efforts to strengthen linkages between tourism and local manufacturers. As we celebrate its tenth year, we are proud to see how it has grown, providing an excellent platform for our talented artisans and producers to showcase the best of Jamaica to a wider audience,” he stated.

The event will feature a diverse range of products, including desktop solutions, spa and aromatherapy items, décor, clothing, fine art, jewelry, souvenirs, food, and products made from organic and natural fibers.

Bartlett encouraged Jamaicans and corporate entities to attend the event and explore the “authentic Jamaican-made gift items” available for early purchase or order ahead of the upcoming Christmas season.

“We are excited to welcome even more exhibitors and visitors to the National Arena, further amplifying the impact of this important initiative,” Bartlett added.

Christmas in July will run from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day, with media personality Emprezz Golding as the host.

The event is a collaborative effort of the Tourism Linkages Network, a division of the Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), and its partners, including the Jamaica Business Development Corporation (JBDC), the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA), Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO), and the Jamaica Manufacturers and Exporters Association (JMEA).
