Saturday March 19. Vybz Entertainment Incorporated (Vybz Ent Inc) in association with the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) will be hosting yet another year of the signature event from May 15 to 25. Today’s official launching ceremony will take place at the Linden/Georgetown minibus park commencing at 16:00h.
The event will see remarks by Vybz Ent Inc Chairman Devin Sears, a Regional Democratic Council (RDC) representative, Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) representative and Government officials, cushioned by the release of the LTW Jingle, revelation of the LTW 2016 theme and cultural items. The launch is four-fold, with a press briefing, ceremony, mingle and entertainment into the night along with stage performances and fete.
The Linden Town Week is an annual celebration of the town’s birth anniversary. This year it will be celebrating 46 years; however according to Vybz Ent Inc, unorthodoxly it has been shifted to the period of Guyana’s 50th Independence Celebration for accommodation purposes.
This marks a significant year in history as the town will observe 20 years of the LTW observances and 100 years of bauxite, all of which have contributed to the socio and economic development of the town.
Vybz Ent Inc said it expects that the scale of economic stimulation, marketing, advertising and sale of products, in estimation will double due to the large influx of tourist and visitors. It is on this basis that the organising body has collaborated with major sponsors and stakeholders to launch LTW 2016.
