MONTEGO BAY, St James — Dwight Troupe, of Dream Worx Entertainment, promoters of Supernova, is calling on the g overnment and private sector, to sponsor more entertainment events across the resort city of Montego Bay, pointing to the role they play in driving the local economy.

“The entertainment scene in Montego Bay has great potential,” Troupe stressed.

“In the heyday of Walt Crooks with Disco Inferno, and in the early 90s, the city was the place to be for entertainment. There is a need for more private sector support in sponsoring events. If promoters got this help we can create solid brands that would attract more visitors and boost revenue and Jamaica's attractiveness,” he argued.

The promoter is also calling on citizens to be supportive of the security forces in their crime-fighting efforts.

“A sharp reduction in crime only serves to boost our fortunes as a city, and what we are offering to visitors,” he stated.

Added Troupe: “Civic pride is another area that our citizens need to improve in. Garbage disposal and collection is a troublesome area that has been plaguing the second city for too long. We are making strides in other areas, but if we are looking for more visitors to the city, this must be addressed.”

Troupe also called for more dialogue among promoters the municipal corporation, and the Jamaica Constabulary Force.

Troupe recently staged the sixth edition of Supernova in a collaborative effort with BritJam's organisers in a move he hopes will propel his brand into an internationally recognisable one.

“Our partnership with Britjam and the move to Pier One has opened doors for the event to grow at a faster pace than we had anticipated. Britjam is one of Jamaica's largest music festivals. it brings in over 700 tourists to the shores of Montego Bay. It exposes our culture and what Jamaica has to offer, and this is the importance we want the government and citizens to recognise,” said Troupe.
