Comparatively speaking, as what many consider at best, to be merely a “luke warm” 2010 – 2011, Tourism Season tapers off, many bars, lounges, restaurants, and hotels will now have to rely on their architectural skills to craft survival programs. In one interview, a Hotel Executive on Nevis noted that in terms of room occupancy and revenues, although the 2011- fiscal year was better than 2010, all of their targets were not realized and as this summer unfolds, tourism-related establishments will have to be very creative.
Along a similar vein, yet another entrepreneur from the Tourism Industry, Mrs. Cleo Walters, proprietor for the Ole House Cafe located on the south-western end of Pump Road, (adjacent to the “Round – About” on the island main road, just across from the new building that will house ValuMart), explained that her restaurant’s summer formula will be entrenched in Entertainment. With this in mind, she noted that, “the Ole House Cafe will partner with SEN Consulting, a local Marketing and Events Management Company, to host weekly Karaoke on Fridays, starting May 20th, from 9 pm to 12 midnight.” Walters underscored the fact that SEN Consulting was behind the successful 2010 – Karaoke Idol Competitions on Nevis and St. Kitts, and in discussing plans with Noah Mills, the Managing Director for said Company, the entertainment model to be used should prove to attract large crowds, while providing spectacular entertainment, great prizes, and most of all, ‘OFF THE CHAIN FUN for everyone.
Mrs. Walters went on to mention that one of the key mistakes many companies often make is that they inexplicably choose not to tap into the resources available locally, and consequently, to their detriment, assume that they are capable of managing all aspects of their operation. Hence this is why she decided to form an alliance with SEN Consulting.
As for prizes, the first Male and Female Performers, Oldest and Youngest Singers, the Singer who performs the most songs, the best sounding Male and Female, as well as, the overall best Performance will WIN BIG PRIZES.
Other attractions will include multiple indoor and outdoor Screens to display song lyrics for performers and audience, top quality audio equipment, as well as, an unmatched Karaoke Song database. Plus…. all this entertainment will be FREE.
