Another high-profile tourism conference is coming to the island of Jamaica.

Jamaica is set to host the Tourism Resilience Summit of the Americas in September, according to Jamaica Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett.

The summit will gather key global stakeholders and thought leaders on Sept. 13 at the University of the West Indies, Mona in Jamaica.

“This summit forms part of my ministry’s efforts to build resilience within the region and globally. Resilience building has become even more crucial in a world that is hyper connected and as such more susceptible to climate change, epidemics and pandemics, terrorism and cybercrime,” Bartlett said.

The summit, which will be held under the theme “Tourism Resilience Through Global Synergies,” “seek to assess existing and emerging disruptions related to tourism management globally;  examine the risk of these disruptions to the global tourism product; and identify a synergetic strategic and operational framework for mutual partnerships between and among major governmental, non-governmental and business entities to address as well as develop mitigation strategies for these global disruptions,” according to a statement from Jamaica’s Ministry of Tourism.

Jamaica has been looking to position itself as a global leader in tourism resilience, highlighted by the recent launch of a new Global Center for Tourism Resilience.
