Hosted by the Jamaica Manufacturers’ and Exporters Association Limited since 1971 Expo Jamaica is the Caribbean’s number one exhibition and tradeshow showcasing manufacturers, service providers, primary producers, exporters and tourism industry under one roof.
As a multi-sectoral tradeshow we attracted over two hundred and nineteen (219) exhibitors, five hundred and sixty-eight (568) buyers, and twenty-one thousand four hundred and forty-two (21,442) consumers at our last staging in 2018.
Expo was first held in 1971 under the leadership of then JMA President, Charles Henderson-Davis, and was dubbed “Industry in Action”. In 1972, the biennial fair took on a more unique quality, because for the first time, it was being staged jointly by the JMA and JEA. The 1982 Expo became the first show geared towards the export market and one which saw the participation of manufacturers outside Jamaica. The show therefore provided the perfect opportunity for networking and the establishment of profitable business relationships.
