The Events Company St. Lucia Inc. has constructed a new conference facility; the Facility is situated on the Gros Islet Park on the sea shore between the Gros islet town and the Landings hotel. For too long officials say, revenue was being lost as there was no place to host large conferences here. The new facility will be used to house atleast four of the larger events making up Saint Lucia Jazz this year.
According to the Minister for Tourism, for too long the Island has been missing out on millions of dollars in business because it did not have such a facility.
According to the Minister for tourism, the timely construction of the facility will allow Jazz events to be held there. The Minister for Culture Fortuna Belrose agrees that this location and facility is ideal for hosting these events.
According to Senator Belrose, this year’s initiative was designed to spread the Jazz event throughout the length and breadth of St. Lucia creating the opportunity for local talent to be showcased and also for local artistes to interact with the International Jazz pioneers.
CEO of Events St. Lucia Inc. Thomas Leonce says the ambiance is perfect for hosting Jazz events starting as soon as Wednesday evening.
The new facility was constructed in a matter of four days .
