Air Jamaica to support Women’s Seminar in St. Lucia

NEW YORK – Air Jamaica has confirmed its support for a groundbreaking women’s seminar on St. Lucia as the Caribbean creole destination and the regional carrier tap the emerging faith tourism market.

Kaye Chong, one of Air Jamaica’s managers of Community and Special Market Sales, said Air Jamaica was pleased to support the “The Walk: Sanctuary for the Soul” seminar, slated for June 8 to 11 at Coco Resorts in Rodney Bay. “The faith tourism market is an untapped market and the church community is still unaware of the full advantages of having these kinds of seminars in the Caribbean,” said Chong.

The seminar, designed for women of faith, excellence and integrity, is being produced by award-winning journalist, author and Christian broadcaster Andria Hall, President of SpeakEasy M.E.D.I.A. “Having seminars in the Caribbean is refreshing to both the soul and the spirit, and it also provides an opportunity for the church community to fellowship with the saints in the Caribbean and expand their respective ministries,” said Chong, who previously appeared on Hall’s popular radio broadcast, The Walk at Work, on WMCA radio in the tri-state area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

The conference is expected to attract participants from the US, St. Lucia and the wider Caribbean who will benefit from powerful guest speakers, interactive sessions and ‘Biblical Aromatherapy’ as registrants sample essential oils which were used in Biblical times. “We commend Air Jamaica for their vision and foresight to support this seminar, and more importantly, for understanding the potential of the faith tourism market – a market that is pleased to patrionise destinations that cater to their faith sensitivities,” noted Hall, who said a major highlight of the conference will be a gospel concert featuring a sensational group from the New York area.

Hall will be in St. Lucia next week to finalise plans for the June seminar, and conduct interviews for her weekly radio show.
