The Journey Continues…

Undoubtedly the past 19 months have been the most challenging and difficult periods in the industry. Mother Nature chose to wreck havoc on the international scene, compounded with more recent events in Europe where people were affected by air traffic controls, however in spite of all of this we remain optimistic and hopeful as we look to the future.

We cannot and will not allow the strains of the present economic situation to distract us from our task delivering on our promise of providing exceptional service. We fully appreciate your support of Glamour DMC, and look forward to continued as well as new relationships that will prove mutually rewarding.

Roy C. Anderson, Chairman


Glamour DMC and Nuvox/Windstream Group Partner with a Mission

Over 50 children and staff members at the SOS Children’s Village were awakened to the sounds of hammers and scent of paint when Glamour Destination Management and US-based Nuvox/Windstream group visited them recently.

Located in the community of Barrett Town, St. James, the SOS Children’s Village, a privately-run organisation for orphaned and abandoned children, received a face-lift courtesy of the Nuvox/Windstream group which recently visited Jamaica.

The group, which stayed at the luxurious Half Moon resort, took advantage of Glamour DMC’s community outreach initiative Partnership with a Mission. Members of the group spent an entire day painting and renovating the buildings, planting fruit trees and installing basketball hoops.

The Turks & Caicos Conch Festival in the Blue Hills area of Providenciales celebrates the pink-lipped shell on one noisy day of eating, dancing, sailing and blowing.

Conch, pronounced konk in the Turks & Caicos, has been an important Caribbean food source since the time of the Arawak indians, who also carved them into tools and ceremonial objects.

A conch-tasting competition involving local restaurants and chefs lasts for most of the day. A native sloop sailing race, live music and the popular conch-blowing contest make up the rest of the fun.

OUR HIDDEN TREASURES OF JAMAICA

Jamaica’s natural beauty is exemplified not only by its breathtaking sites, scenes and amazing tours, but by warm and hospitable people who welcome you to their sunny shores. There are a number of “secret hidden treasures” on Glamour’s itinerary such as ‘Great Huts’, Port Antonio. Also referred to as “Paradise On The Edge” because it rests at the precipice of a fossilized coral cliff, 100 feet above the Caribbean Sea. Great Huts is mindful of one’s budget, and offers affordable lodging, and a chance to experience the natural beauty of Jamaica and her people. Their economy dwellings are secluded within their expansive seafront grounds, and include complimentary breakfast and wireless internet, all at an affordable price.
