A group of 52 Canadian travel agents recently had the chance to experience Moon Palace Jamaica Grande in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, exploring the resort property as well as the island.
The agents – 37 from Quebec and 15 from Ontario and Atlantic Canada, were joined by Moon Palace’s Eastern Canada BDMs Julie Golding and Diana Winters. The FAM, which took place from Sept. 24 to Oct. 1, was organized in conjunction with the Jamaica Tourist Board and included a pair of excursions to Blue Hole and Dunn's River Falls, both located in Ocho Rios.
In addition, the group participated in a conference organized by the Palace Foundation and the generous agents made donations to two local schools: one dedicated for children with autism and the other providing services for deaf children.
