The 2015 Tobago Jazz Experience was launched on January 19th at the Paprika Restaurant, Rust Street in Port of Spain on Trinidad.
Secretary of Tobago House of Assembly’s Tourism and Transportation, Tracy Davidson-Celestine said she was excited by the quality of acts planned for the week of activities and is confident that once again thousands of guests will come to Tobago to be part of the Tobago Jazz Experience.
“The Division of Tourism and Transportation continues to invest in this project because it has the effect of benefiting ordinary Tobagonians. The hotels, guests’ houses and bed and breakfast properties are all full during this time. This means waiters, taxi drivers, street food vendors, bar owners are just a few who benefit from the T.J.E.,” Davidson-Celestine said.
She added that her division wants to encourage ordinary Tobagonians to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the tourism industry.
“The Jazz experience also helps to build indigenous Tobago businesses and I want to encourage Tobagonians to not be afraid and take the opportunities to be successful by getting into the business of tourism. When one looks at the people who are entrepreneurs and are in the tourism business one can see the economic potential and I urge particularly young Tobagonians to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the growing sector,” Davidson-Celestine continued.
The Tobago Jazz Experience will take place from April 18 to 26.
