LIME at Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts!
LIME has once again stepped up as a sponsor of the St. Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival by continuing its support of various community events and initiatives. Fond d’Or Jazz, Jazz on the Square, Sir Arthur Lewis Community College Jazz and Jazz at Blue Coral Mall are some of the events receiving sponsorship support from St. Lucia’s leading telecommunications provider.
LIME has contributed cash and telecommunications assistance to all four events, including wireless (Wi-Fi) Internet access at venues, tents and ISDN lines to facilitate live radio broadcast of the musical performances, along with other forms of technical support. LIME is also assisting with advertising by way of free promotional airtime on the company’s radio programs, and will be rewarding patrons with free LIME-branded giveaways. LIME’s overall contribution to the festival this year is valued at over $60,000.
LIME’s superfast 4G network will enable its mobile customers to capture the shows’ memorable moments with their mobile videos and cameras, and surf the web at blazing speeds.
