Tuesday, April 09, 2002 - The most important marketing tool for Saint Lucia, the Saint Lucia Jazz Festival continues to receive tremendous support from the business community. During a sponsors’ cheque presentation on Tuesday April 09, 2002, Chairman of the Saint Lucia Tourist Board Desmond Skeete commended the sponsors for the continued and sterling support to the festival over the years.

“That kind of support is so invaluable. When I think back to the first year of the festival, our total revenues were probably slightly under two hundred thousand dollars. Now it’s about 1.7 million dollars. A big difference but we couldn’t get there without your support,” said Skeete.

Gold sponsors for this year’s jazz festival are B.E.T. Jazz, Air Jamaica, Cable and Wireless St. Lucia Limited, Helen Television System, Jazziz Magazine, J&R Music World, Royal Saint Lucian and Rex Saint Lucian Hotels and the Wave.

This year is the 11th anniversary of the Saint Lucia Jazz Festival.
