Digicel officially reaffirmed to the Saint Lucia Tourist Board its commitment to support the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival 2015 at the sponsors’ Cheque Presentation held on March 12th, 2015 at Sandals Halcyon.
“What is the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival? It is island vibes, fantastic music, pulsating beats, the best party in the Caribbean and so much more,” according to Mr. John Emmanuel, Public Relations Officer for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board.
The Saint Lucia Tourist Board kicked off the evening by expressing its gratitude to the corporate community and their business partners for their continued support of the festival as well as highlighting the important role sponsors play in the overall success of the internationally renowned event hosted in Saint Lucia.
Digicel, for the seventh year, is a proud sponsor of the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival and, by extension, a partner to the Saint Lucia Tourist Board. Digicel continues to pledge its support to the musical and cultural art form in Saint Lucia at the national level as well as at the community level. Being able to provide an atmosphere which showcases not only international artistes such as Beres Hammond, Robin Thicke, Jon Secada, Jimmy Cliff, Destra and many more but also providing an avenue to highlight local talent through musical performances and the cultural art form is a great way to continue building on the overall tourism product and further stimulating economic activity in Saint Lucia. Siobhan James-Alexander, Digicel’s Country Manager expressed, “Digicel is elated to be yet again a sponsor of such a remarkable festival. Putting on a showcase that not only highlights what is truly St. Lucian but also generates some form of economic stimulus is extraordinary. Continuous support to the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival demonstrates Digicel’s commitment to supporting national events and the people of Saint Lucia. Of course, this level of support does not end here; customers can also look forward to our support in the various community jazz events set to be part of the build up to the mainstage showcase.”
Digicel invites all Saint Lucians to enjoy a diverse line up, poetry, theatre art showcases, and lots more. Embrace our Saint Lucian culture and experience the Saint Lucia Jazz and Arts Festival 2015.
