Promotion of the sixteenth edition of The World Creole Music Festival (WCMF) got going in Guadeloupe at the start of the weekend with Express Des Isles promising additional vessels to transport patrons from the French island to the event if the need arises.
A press conference was held at the Centre Culturelle Sonis in Pointe a Pitre attended by a number of media houses on the island, the Dominica Guadeloupe Association’s president Maymont Paul, Dominica’s honorary consul Catarina D’Alexis Cherdieu and Didier Coff, commercial director of marketing for Express Des Isles.
“We will do anything in our power to have patrons attend the festival which includes putting additional vessels if the need arises,” Coff promised.
However he said his company is concerned that late decisions by patrons pose problems when making necessary changes to the schedule. “Purchase tickets early,” he encouraged patrons. “With the high cost of fuel anytime the vessels travel with empty seats, it’s a loss for the company.”
The festival is being promoted in Guadeloupe by Vice president of the WCMF Sobers Esprit and Leroy Wadix Charles. They also held a one-hour promotion on the popular radio station Kilti-FM.
