The patrons will once again be given the opportunity to experience the Denbigh Hub Concepts namely :
Children and Family Hub
The Children and Family Hub for this years staging of the Denbigh Show will focus primarily on teaching children about agriculture in a fun way, through games, rides and agriculture based activities. Children, at a young age, are impressionable and it is an opportunity to sow the seeds of agriculture in their minds, while making it fun enough to capture and keep their attention. In this way, the future of agriculture can be protected.
Tourism and Linkage Hub
The Denbigh Secretariat will re-introduce the concept of the Tourism and Linkage Hub for Denbigh 2014 and the Jamaica Tourist Board will collaborate with us in this initiative. The Tourism and Linkage Hub is an integral facet of the Denbigh Show as it is intended to highlight and promote the importance of collaboration within the sectors to showcase our cuisine culture and to inform the public of its benefits to national development.
The Tourism and Linkage Hub will offer participants within the Hotel and other Industries the opportunity to:
As is traditionally expected, each day of the show is especially dedicated to a particular Government Official who addresses the audience or patrons.
The Tourism and Linkage Hub will become the hub of interrelated partnership between the tourism and agricultural sectors.

In recognizing the important elements of maintaining complete physical, mental, and social lifestyle the health and wellness circle becomes an integral aspect of the Denbigh Show to provide screening, essential tests and health checks to interested persons attending the event. The Health and Wellness Hub will therefore give the Health and Wellness Provider the opportunity to:

Members from the various regions within the Organic Movement will also be able to showcase their produce and work. Information transfer will be done through a Speakers area where experts will speak on various issues such as GMO's and climate change. The target is to have at least 15 organizations in the Hub and it is the vision of JOAM to ensure that each visitor should leave with a taste of the organic lifestyle.
