(BPRW) The 2019 Edition of the Award-Winning Our Jamaica Annual Destination Guide Is Now Out!

(Black PR Wire) Kingston, Jamaica -- On the heels of a wildly successful 2018 edition, the Jamaica Hotel and Tourist Association (JHTA) and HCP Media are excited to announce the release of the 2019 edition of Our Jamaica magazine.

This annual in-room destination guide earned five major awards for its most recent issue from the Florida Magazine Association, McClatchy, Graphic Design USA and the Communicator Awards for everything from Best Redesign and Social Media coverage to Best Marketing and Overall Book. Reimagining Our Jamaica as a forum to educate visitors about Jamaica's distinctive character, warm hospitality, inimitable style, rich history and delightful culture, made it an invaluable tool for both the leisure traveler eager to know what to do next and the corporate planner looking for the ideal destination. The 2019 edition explores new stories while maintaining the widely celebrated look and feel of its predecessor.

With a print run of 47,000 magazines distributed in key markets around the world and within the rooms and lobbies of hotels, resorts and guest houses throughout the island, Our Jamaica is conveniently available. It is also easy to take on-the-go thanks to its mobile-ready digital edition and responsive website, OurJamaicaMagazine.com, and continually connected with what's happening in Jamaica through its dedicated Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts. Those considering a trip there got a sneak peek of this brand new guide in early December, when the Miami Herald ran a Special Destination Coverage report in its Sunday Travel Section featuring content from the magazine.

 

"We are excited to share the 2019 edition of Our Jamaica with those visiting the island, as well as those looking forward to their stay with us," says Omar Robinson, President of the Jamaica Hotel & Tourist Association. "With this guide, we happily invite globetrotters and vacation seekers to daydream about our beautiful destination and then plan their escape to our shores."

 

With content thoughtfully divided into four main sections - Trendsetter, Explorer, Navigator and News & Notes - readers can leaf through the pages learning about interesting facts, important information and exciting events, or immerse themselves in the features that delve into what makes Jamaica unique.

 

"The magazine's gorgeous design and captivating content make it both accessible and engaging," says Marisa Beazel, President and Publisher of HCP Media. "Jamaica is a fascinating country that inspires people to take it easy and live it up. There are few better ways to do that than on a tropical island with a great magazine in hand."
