Rogers Communications has signed a five-year agreement with the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal.
This important multi-year partnership will help connect thousands of festival-goers and further showcase the Festival here in Canada for years to come.
“Rogers is very pleased to be associated with this cultural event that is much appreciated by Quebecers and has been livening the streets of Montreal every summer for over 40 years,” says Édith Cloutier, Regional President of Rogers Québec.
“The world-renowned Festival International de Jazz de Montréal makes it a must-see event with the greatest names in jazz, whom we have greatly missed. We are proud and excited to move to the rhythm of jazz with local and international fans and connect them with the artists who showcase Montreal.”
Starting in 2022, Rogers will be the official presenter of one of the Festival’s most respected stages, the Blues stage, that has been graced by artists such as Steve Hill, Jordan Officer and Matt Schofield. Rogers will also present a series of indoor concerts and will offer festival-goers an improved experience, thanks to the launch of 5G onsite.
For the 2021 edition, which starts on September 15, Rogers will offer visitors musical entertainment in the Quartier des spectacles, exclusive content as part of the Festival’s digital segment, as well as device-charging stations.
“This partnership is great news and will help secure the Festival’s future. We are very pleased to welcome Rogers as a major partner for the return of jazz in the
Quartier des Spectacles,” says Laurent Saulnier, Vice-President of Programming for the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal.
“We look forward to exploring with them the different opportunities that will provide an even more enjoyable experience for festival goers over the next five years of our partnership.”
Rogers has evolved into a media and technology leader and is working to build and expand world-class networks to provide the next generation of connectivity, that will contribute to Canadian businesses and consumers.
