Jamaica Spa Association launched

 

The global spa and wellness Industry is constantly expanding, and as the demand for wellness services increases there must be standards and policies in place for Jamaica to capitalize on these opportunities.

The Jamaica Spa Association seeks to create these standards and become the key lobby group for the spa industry in an effort to propel Jamaica as a premier destination for health and wellness.

The official investment body JAMPRO, through the Jamaica Coalition of Service Industries JCSI Secretariat, secured the funding to support the process of incorporation for the association and has been in discussions with donors to secure additional support for development of training programmes.

Health and wellness tourism is a target sector for JAMPRO as it seeks to increase the visibility of the sector for economic growth.  The agency has committed to supporting the Jamaica Spa Association’s development.

The association is currently in their membership recruitment phase having finalised the board of directors and will progress certification once it has sufficient numbers and funds.
