Digicel to support the extraordinary Saint Lucia Jazz Festival 2012
February 7, 2012: CASTRIES, ST. LUCIA: Saint Lucia Jazz is a truly extraordinary event. Extraordinary in its longevity as this year will mark the 21st production, Extraordinary in its variety with the long line of world renowned performers that have graced the stage over the years.
In June 2008, when Digicel was given the opportunity to partner with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board, we promised to bring a new dimension to Saint. Lucia Jazz and over the past 3 years we have fulfilled that promise.
As the Saint Lucia Tourist Board once again prepares to host and present this year’s event, we at Digicel are very elated to be a part of one of the award winning festivals in the Caribbean. It is Digicel’s intention to create the right mood and experience for the patrons to ensure that Saint Lucia Jazz is bigger and better this year.
Patrons should anticipate innovative promotions, giveaways and on-site interactive activities to complement the ambiance and enjoyment of the festival.
At Digicel we are proud and privileged to partner with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board and the people of Saint Lucia. This is why it was important to extend this alliance for another three years.
At a time when the world economic outlook seems gloomy, Digicel’s commitment to the people of St. Lucia remains strong. We are proud of the relationship that we have fostered with the community in nine short years. Clearly, Digicel recognizes that sponsorship success is directly linked to the success of the Digicel brand. Our sponsorship of the Jazz Festival is yet another expression of our gratitude for all the support that the community has given to Digicel.
The Bigger, Better Network is once again providing an avenue for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board to market the event throughout the Caribbean. In the coming months we will have promotions which will give persons from different islands the opportunity to experience atmosphere of St. Lucia Jazz.
Together, the Saint Lucia Tourist Board and Digicel will put on a show like no other - Saint Lucia Jazz 2012. This is the commitment of Digicel, the Bigger, Better Network!
