The Island and Technical Tour will begin at the Rose Hall Great House, just meters away from the conference venue. Rose Hall Great House rests on the hills of the former Rose Hall Sugar Estate which was controlled by the infamous “White Witch” – Annie Palmer. Visitors will get the chance to tour the plantation and learn about its history.
The second leg of the tour will take us to JPS’ Bogue Power Station, which was recently converted to use Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG). The 120-MW plant represents a critical milestone in Jamaica’s fuel diversity journey. After Bogue, the team will head over to New Fortress Energy’s LNG Terminal, which supplies gas to the Bogue Plant.
Conference delegates will then have an opportunity to relax at the newly opened Hard Rock Café, Montego Bay, where the internationally recognized Hard Rock Café experience has been combined with a big splash of Caribbean and Jamaican flavour.

    Jamaica, a Caribbean island nation, has a lush topography of mountains, rainforests and reef-lined beaches. Many of its all-inclusive resorts are clustered in Montego Bay, with its British-colonial architecture, and Negril, known for its diving and snorkeling sites. Jamaica is famed as the birthplace of reggae music, and its capital Kingston is home to the Bob Marley Museum, dedicated to the famous singer. The greater part of Jamaica is a limestone plateau, with an average elevation of about 460 m (1,500 ft). The interior of the island is largely mountainous, and peaks of over 2,100 m (7,000 ft) are found in the Blue Mountains, which dominate the eastern part of the island; the highest point on the island is Blue Mountain Peak, at 2,256 m (7,402 ft) above sea level.

    The coastal plains are largely alluvial, and the largest plains areas lie along the south coast. The island has numerous interior valleys. There are many rivers, but most are small, with rapids and falls that make navigation virtually impossible for any distance.



    The official Language is English but Patios, a dialect, is widely spoken across the island.


    The money in Jamaica is called Jamaican Dollars (JMD).  Bank notes are issued for the following amounts $50, $100, $500 and $1000.  One Jamaican dollar is equal to about $0.01 USD US dollars.  The exchange rates change everyday.


    The climate ranges from tropical at sea level to temperate in the uplands; there is relatively little seasonal variation in temperature. The average annual temperature in the coastal lowlands is 27°c (81°f); for the Blue Mountains, 13°c (55°f). The rainy seasons are May to June and September to November. The period from late August to November has occasionally been marked by destructive hurricanes.


    Electric power in Jamaica is almost the same as in the United States and Canada.  In Jamaica the power sockets are of type A and B. The standard voltage is 110 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.
