Tempo Networks gears up for fifth anniversary
NEWARK—Tempo Networks has announced the successful launch of its Win a Tempo Trip contest and My Tempo Trip reality series in celebration of its fifth year anniversary. Throughout 2011, Tempo will be selecting Tempo viewers to receive all-inclusive trips for two to various Caribbean islands. In recognition and appreciation of the enthusiastic support Tempo viewers and fans have shown the network over the years, Tempo is treating its viewers to a most memorable high-end tourist experience.
To enter, Tempo viewers and fans are required to visit www.gottempo.com and write an essay of 150 words or less describing why they love Tempo and why they deserve a Tempo Trip. The new reality series, My Tempo Trip, will feature each weekend trip showcasing the adventures of the winner in both their home country and the destination islands. The response thus far has been overwhelming, with entries from more than 16 countries, with the US, T&T and the Bahamas being the top three countries respectively.
The first lucky winner from Trinidad, Tricia Matthews, a primary school teacher in San Fernando, returned recently from her Tempo trip to the beautiful island of Anguilla. The My Tempo Trip crew documented her entire experience with her husband, Andy Dibique, as they experienced the best of luxurious accommodations, fine dining, arts and culture, tour excursions, night life and much more. In describing her trip, Tricia was ecstatic: “Being a Tempo fan and experiencing this Tempo trip has helped me to appreciate my Caribbean identity more than ever.
“I met some wonderful people, Mark and Sheldon from Lime, who presented me with a Blackberry Torch and other Lime souvenirs; Accelyn our driver; Haydn, Candis, and Chantal from the Ministry of Tourism and the Tourist Board of Anguilla and so many more. Also greater thanks to Frederick Morton Jr, whom I deeply admire and appreciate. This is all God’s work and I know that He (God) has a lot more in store for us!” “To be able to provide this trip to a deserving winner like Tricia and her husband Andy is exactly in line with Tempo’s mission and vision for the Caribbean,” said Morton Jr, Tempo Founder, Chairman and CEO, Tempo Networks.
“Tempo is designed to let us see each other, reach out to each other, understand each other and to know that we are intricately linked as a people…and, now Tempo will physically take our viewers around the region, demonstrating what we all should know, that we are one people, one Caribbean and in this regard, further encourage regional tourism so that we can continue on our journey towards becoming self-sufficient.” The second trip and installment of the series is already in the works, as Tempo will select a winner for the next Win a Tempo Trip to St Kitts.
