Peeks Social to sponsor Toronto Caribbean Carnival
Toronto-based mobile application developer Peeks Social has signed-on as the title sponsor of the annual Toronto Caribbean Carnival. This year's event, which will take place from July 17 to Aug. 7, will make use of the theme "Celebrating Our Heritage: From Then to Now" in recognition of its 50th anniversary. It will be called the Peeks Toronto Caribbean Carnival. As part of the sponsorship, the carnival will have a dedicated channel on the Peeks network which will carry live streaming video of the event. The Peeks application allows users to upload and share personal videos from Android or Apple devices.
"As a Torontonian and given my family's long history with the Toronto carnival, I am thrilled that Peeks Social will be its title sponsor in 2017 and for years to come," said Mark Itwaru, chairman and CEO of Peeks Social. "Toronto's carnival is the premiere event of its kind in North America, attracting over a million visitors from the GTA and around the world. The event continues to grow and I expect that people will soon be talking about it in the same breath as they talk about carnivals in Rio and the Caribbean."
