Jazz & Arts Festival Corporate Partners Shine

SAINT LUCIA (April 3, 2014) – On Tuesday April 2nd, the Almond Morgan Bay resort collaborated with the Saint Lucia Tourist Board in honoring the many corporate partners who contribute to the continuing success of the annual Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival.

Director of Tourism Louis Lewis and the Festival Organizing Committee were joined by corporate executives representing the festival’s many partners for the Sponsors’ Cheque Hand-over Ceremony. The highly symbolic ceremony also included recognition of and tributes to the diverse corporate partners.

Now ranked amongst the most prestigious music festivals in the world, the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival has become the Caribbean’s premiere festival experience through many years of continued commitment by Saint Lucia’s business community who have lent support and brand power generously.

“Sponsor buy-in remains one of the key factors powering the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival, knowledge we do not take lightly,” noted Lewis. “We strive to remain the type of entity sponsors are eager to partner with, ensuring a high return on their generous investments while maintaining a mutually beneficial relationship.”

Lewis continued “The goal of the Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival has always been the promotion of Saint Lucia and the scale and impact of the festival would be greatly diminished without the continued support of its multiple partners.”
