Tempo Offers Free Anniversary Trips

The pan-Caribbean media and entertainment network, TEMPO, is teaming up with regional airline LIAT to offer selected Caribbean travelers free trips to St. Maarten for the network's seventh anniversary celebrations from November 25 to December 1, 2012.

Until November 14, 2012, lucky travelers will have a chance to "Win a TEMPO Trip" along with a guest of their choice to participate in the "TEMPO Turns 7" week long anniversary celebrations, featuring top local, regional and international entertainers.

"We are announcing the artist line-up shortly and as usual it will assure a memorable celebration with some of the top stars in the music business," said Frederick A. Morton, Jr., Founder, Chairman and CEO of TEMPO Networks.

Minister of Tourism and Entertainment, the Hon. Dr. Wykeham McNeill has underscored that the resort town of Ocho Rios has been spared any major impact from the passage of Hurricane Sandy and is open for business. This after Minister McNeill toured sections of the town earlier this week with State Minister for Tourism and Entertainment, the Hon. Damion Crawford, members of the Resort Board, representatives of the Jamaica Tourist Board, JTB, the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo) and other Ministry and government officials.

Following the tour which incorporated various sections of the town including the cruise ship pier and the One Love Trail, the Minister noted that “based on what we have seen from examining sections of the town there are only a few areas that were directly affected by Sandy and now need to be addressed. But frankly speaking the town of Ocho Rios is open for business and we are working closely with the JHTA, the Parish Council, Resort Board and other tourism partners to address the immediate and longstanding issues that have to be tackled as we seek to enhance the town.”

Asleep at the Wheel, the famed nine-time Grammy-winning western-swing, boogie, and roots-music outfit that’s played with the likes of Willie Nelson, Vince Gill, Lyle Lovett, Merle Haggard and many others to the delight of country music fans for more than 40 years, performs at South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center (SMDCAC) on Saturday, November 17 at 8pm.

“With the NASCAR Championship Weekend happening in Homestead the same weekend as this performance, we thought it was a natural fit for both people in the south Miami-Dade community and visitors attending the races to connect to the Center,” said Eric Fliss, General Manager.
Miami is renowned around the world as a hub of culture and diversity, boasting some of North America’s largest festivals and most sought-after shows. However, a new chapter will begin on August 31st 2013 as the city debuts yet another global accolade – a 100% eco-friendly music festival.

Dubbed ‘Friends of Nature Music Festival’ the event aims to raise awareness about the planet through two days of spectacular music, peace, entertainment and a wide variety of activities and exhibitors. While setting the standard by being 100% sustainable in itself, the ground-breaking festival is set to take the city by storm.
