“Hard Beat’s dedication to providing excellent service to the RTPark allowed us to achieve our goal of bringing our targeted audience of U.S. Government leaders, members of the CARICOM Consular Corps and Caribbean Diaspora, and business leaders up to speed on the UVI RTPark program. The work ethic, attention to detail and willingness to do whatever was necessary to make the event a success was truly inspirational and set the bar high for future RTPark events.”

– Dr. Gillian Marcelle, Executive Director, UVI Research and Technology Park

“Hard Beat and  Invest Caribbean Now provided our island destination with a unique opportunity – one that allowed us access to many of the decision makers in the Chinese outbound market and potential investors who can partner and do business in our expanding business sector. You truly delivered on your promise of a prestigious audience and I believe that through your efforts, many potential investors have become aware of the fact that Saint Martin is open for business.”

– Hon. Jeanne Rogers-Vanterpool Commissioner of Tourism and President of the Office of Tourism Saint Martin

“Sagicor has worked with Hard Beat upon our entry into the United State. Hard Beat completed a series of ad bookings for us in the South Florida marketplace and not only did they focus on booking our ads. but they were there with us at every level; doing PR, preparing us with talking points for interviews, and even filling in for us on interviews when we were unable to. Additionally, not only did Hard Beat book radio interviews for us, but the company negotiated pro bono interviews with the stations and that went a long way in boosting the value of our ad dollars spent. Hard Beat truly is a partner for us in the United States.”

Anabel Thomas, VP Marketing and Corporate Communications, Sagicor

“Hard Beat’s Invest Caribbean Now conference has, quite rightly, become a highly anticipated event for members of the Caribbean’s public and private sector, and for investors who are interested in taking advantage of the Caribbean’s very friendly investment climate. We extend our congratulations to Hard Beat Communications on another excellent event that helps to positively position the region.”

CTO Chairman and Commissioner of Tourism Of The USVI, Beverly Nicholson Doty

“Becoming the principal sponsor for ICN in 2013 was a natural next step for Avalon. Through our sponsorship we were able to achieve greater brand recognition across the geographic areas within which we work and we expect to continue to partner with ICN’s Board on future projects.”

– Dr. Grace Lappin, Managing Partner of Avalon Partners, Ltd.

“Hard Beat has worked for the past three years with Turn Key as its promotions arm to the U.S. for the annual Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival and their work has been outstanding. From coordinating our launch event in New York to a full service marketing and PR promotion that entailed numerous ad buys on TV, radio interviews, print placements, online promotions and liaisoning with the media and artists, Hard Beat has been able to boost our presence in this marketplace and this work has resulted in an increase in the number of visitors from the U.S. market. I do not think there is anyone in the marketplace who does what Hard Beat does and with the ability to deliver the professionalism and results that the company does with half the cost.”

-Walter Elmore. President, Turn Key Productions Inc.

“Our company – More Magic Solutions – has been actively working with Hard Beat from since 2008 as we target the ethnic marketplace with culturally sensitive ad creatives and focused media buys. In that time, they have consistently delivered for us and used their excellent knowledge in this market place to help us make the best possible buys and also come up with the most focused creatives at half the cost of the typical agencies.”

Carol Meier, Marketing Director, More Magic Solutions.
