Montego Bay Convention CentreAccording to the latest report published by the Jamaica Information Service, the Montego Bay Convention Centre in Rose Hall, St. James will soon be revamped by spending approximately $200 million respectively.

This initiation is part of the Government’s plan to facilitate “fit for purpose”, to transform the convention center into a well-known venue to organize meetings and conventions. This in return will help to enhance the profitability of the place, as expressed by Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett.

He said that the reconstruction work will be finished on time to help the centre to organize the forthcoming United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) global conference, from November 27 to 29 respectively.

Furthermore, Bartlett highlighted that constant attempts will help to merge the facility’s status as one of the preferred choices for venues to make certain that it becomes a leading convention center and remains in the minds of local, regional and global stakeholders all the time.

He was explaining on July 28 a Montego Bay Chamber of Commerce and Industry ‘Invest MoBay’ breakfast forum at the Royal Decameron Hotel in St. James.

The center bounces back after causing losing millions of dollars in the past several years. Bartlett repeated that as a result of frequent interventions over the last nine months, “we have improved revenue by 65 per cent and we have turned around a projected loss of US$2 million to J$40 million.”
