In the early 1990’s the country saw a boom in the economy and experienced a general liberalization, which opened the marketplace for many industries. The winds of change brought with it the dawn of the information age and Jamaicans were now given the opportunity to choose what to watch, read and listen.

The Expo was the perfect forum to bring both buyers and sellers together in an arena where all could walk away with the knowledge and information that would work in the interest of both the advertiser and the media.
