MONTREAL, June 13, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - After five years of fruitful
partnership as Official Sponsor of the event, the Laurentian Bank is
proud to renew its association with the International Balloon Festival
of Saint-Jean-Sur-Richelieu until 2016. This year's edition boasts an
absolutely spectacular program extending from August 11th to 19th.
The Laurentian Bank invites young Quebec families to visit the toddler's
corner - Les Petits + Laurentian Bank. This year, kids will have the
opportunity to express their creative spirit at the badge-making
workshop and bring home a colourful picture souvenir.
This year, the Laurentian Bank extends to its clients and employees a
special invitation to attend the International Balloon Festival. While
onsite, they will benefit from a privileged access to the Laurentian
Bank lounge, a prime spot to view the balloons as they lift off or to
simply relax and have a drink.
"The Laurentian Bank is proud to support this tremendous event and is
committed to honour its role as Official Sponsor for many years to
come", said Stéphane Gagnon, Senior Vice-President of Marketing and
Product Management at Laurentian Bank. Since the Laurentian Bank is
determined to make a difference in the lives of its clients, we decided
to create a unique experience by opening a tent for their benefit
during the International Balloon Festival. We are always ready to go
above and beyond to please them."
This summer, scan the sky for the Laurentian Bank balloon as is hovers
