Saint Lucia Jazz – A Real Saint Lucian Experience
Contact: Rose Marie Harris
Wednesday, May 04, 2005 – “The big picture is that Lucia Jazz is one of
best events in the world, the big picture is that there is no where in the world
that they can replicate Saint Lucia Jazz. We have created an event that is
unique not only to Saint Lucia but unique to the world and we are proud of it.”
This was the message from Mr. Hilary Modeste, Saint Lucia’s Director of Tourism,
during his remarks to officially open Jazz on the Square on Monday May 1st 2005.
It is certainly the biggest market - over four thousand Caribbean people come to Saint Lucia for Saint Lucia Jazz followed by the American market which is just under four thousand and then the UK and European market; and so the Caribbean market is still very, very strong for us and we do not take the Caribbean market for granted it is a major part of our advertising.”
As Saint Lucia prepares for the full implementation of the provisions of the
Caribbean Single Market and Economy (CSME), Saint Lucia Jazz is being viewed as
a major part of the island’s market thrust into the future.
