NEW YORK, N.Y. (July 14, 2015) — The Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and Palace Resorts have joined forces to sponsor Jamaica’s Promotional Day at Yankee Stadium on August 7, 2015. The strategic partnership includes an all-inclusive vacation package giveaway for four, compliments of Moon Palace Jamaica Grande and Delta Air Lines, the Official Air Line of the New York Yankees.
Palace Resorts and the JTB will be celebrating Jamaica’s Promotional Day in grand style by transforming the SAP Suite Lounge at Yankee Stadium into an experiential oasis reflective of both Jamaica and Moon Palace Jamaica Grande, the brand’s first property outside of Mexico. The lounge will set the stage for Jamaica’s Promotional Day as it will host JTB representatives, a slew of VIPs, top meeting planners, tour operators, travel agents and media. Patrons will also have a chance to enter to win a trip on-site at the Jamaica’s Promotional Day Kiosk located in the Great Hall.
At the game, in which the New York Yankees are set to play Toronto, the first 18,000 attendees will receive a Jamaica and Moon Palace Jamaica Grande branded canvas beach bag.
“Partnering with world class brands such as the New York Yankees, Palace Resorts and Delta Air Lines is a great way to bring awareness to Destination Jamaica. We anticipate that this collaboration will boost arrivals from the Northeast market during the upcoming fall season,” said Paul Pennicook, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “Jamaica is now increasingly attracting a more affluent visitor demographic like the New York Yankees fan base, which is why this partnership feels like a home run.”
“Palace Resorts has built a reputation as a company that has redefined the all-inclusive concept and consistently provides guests with the highest caliber experiences in Mexico and the Caribbean. Strategically aligning ourselves with likeminded marquee name brands and forward-thinking organizations such as The New York Yankees, The Jamaica Tourist Board and Delta Air Lines, is a testament to our commitment to excellence,” said Gibran Chapur, Executive Vice President of Palace Resorts. “We are eager to celebrate Moon Palace Jamaica Grande, the next chapter in Palace Resorts’ 30 year history, with our valued partners during a sure to be exciting day at Yankee Stadium.”
“We are excited that both the Jamaica Tourist Board and Palace Resorts have partnered with Delta Air Lines, and hope that the Jamaica’s Promotional Day will augment their brand awareness as a Caribbean destination,” said Michael J. Tusiani, New York Yankees Senior Vice President of Corporate Sales & Sponsorships.
