The Jamaica Manufacturers’ Association (JMA) will once again be honouring manufacturers for their outstanding achievements in the sector, at its 47th Annual Awards Banquet to be held at the Jamaica Pegasus on Saturday October 10, 2015. The Banquet being held in association with Digicel Business commences at 6: 30 p.m. under the theme “Renew and Grow.”

The JMA has consistently recognized that the manufacturing sector is a fundamental component of the productive economy which has continued to drive Jamaica’s growth rate and economic development. This underscores the importance of the Annual Awards Banquet and recognizing the pioneering work being done by manufacturers who continue to reshape Jamaica’s innovation landscape.

Mr. Adam Stewart, Chief Executive Officer of Sandals Resorts International and recent awardee of the Caribbean Hotelier of the Year will be the keynote speaker at this year’s event. Mr. Stewart will address “Brand Building and Linkages for Growth,” particularly important given the efforts of the JMA to facilitate such opportunities.

Among the twenty (20) awards to be presented are: Manufacturer of the Year; New Manufacturer of the Year; Breakthrough Product of the Year; Best SME Award; Champion Exporter Award; Buy Jamaican Award and the Digicel Productivity Award.

Other features of the event include a Silent Auction of locally manufactured products; entertainment by Fab Five, Dub Poet Mr. Randy McLaren, Sketch Artist Mr. Jeffrey Perry, Violinist Mr. Kofi Chase; backdrop and centerpiece by Shanna Campbell’s Bamboo designs; and the launch of Sugar Cane Wine by Journeys End Wine Company. The co-hosts for the night’s event are Mrs. Paula Ann Porter-Jones and Mr. Richard Pandohie, CEO of Seprod.
The JMA encourages guests to be attired in local designs as a part of the “Buy Jamaican, Brand Jamaica” initiative.
