LIME has once again agreed to be the title sponsor of the Chamber Business Expo 21-23 October.
The company has been involved in the Expo from its inception and took on the title sponsorship back in 2002. With the exception of the break caused by Hurricane Ivan’s devastating visit to Grand Cayman in 2004, LIME has stepped up as title sponsor ever since.
LIME Marketing Manager Julie Hutton said the Chamber of Commerce Business Expo is a premium business event that puts buyers and sellers in one place to show off services and introduce new products.
“It is a wonderful initiative that stimulates business and commerce, which is very important to the Cayman Islands economy,” she said. “It is important to our company that we support the business community in which we operate.”
Hutton said LIME was also involved because the Expo provides the company a stage in which to showcase some of its newest products and services, while also offering an opportunity to reward customers with some great deals and specials.
“From an exhibitor perspective, it is the only event on the Island that has so many visitors over a short period of time,” she said. “Therefore it gives us the opportunity to reach out to a large number of people with new and innovative products and services.”
Although it takes a lot of hard work to get ready for the Expo, Hutton said the LIME staff actually looks forward to the event.
“They have a great time interacting with the public in a different environment to a retail store, and we always try to make it a fun event for them,” she said. Of course, attendees will enjoy visiting LIME’s booth at the Expo as well.
“As always, we will have some new products that we will be featuring, plus some red-hot deals that we will only be offering at the Expo over the two days,” Hutton said. “We will be showcasing all our products, including some specifically designed to meet the needs of the small to medium [sized businesses]. Our booth will also be educational with great tips on how to get the most out of your Blackberry or ‘what’s cloud computing all about’.”
Also as usual, there will be some great prizes to be won.
“It wouldn’t be the Chamber Expo if we weren’t giving away prizes,” said Hutton. “We’ll have some very desirable things to win if you purchase something, but also there will be some great prizes just for coming along to say hi.” Hutton said LIME, as a large business and employer in the Cayman Islands, believes in supporting the Chamber of Commerce.
“The Chamber of Commerce couldn’t put on this event without the support of sponsors and we are proud to have been involved with them since it started,” she said.
LIME General Manager, Cayman Islands Tony Ritch echoed the sentiment.
“Our long-standing support of the Cayman Islands community is widely recognised and particularly our association with the Cayman Islands Chamber of Commerce,” he said. “The Expo is one event on the calendar that a lot of people look forward to and it is one of the most affordable and effective ways for companies to get recognised. The Expo is about showcasing local companies and we must remember that every dollar that is spent in local businesses helps to create jobs, fund services and promote our community.”
