spotlight on August I n this month’s issue we take a deeper look into festivals, events and farming and see what all the buzz is this summer as we kick on the second half of 2019. Pictou County is the birthplace of New Scotland, now known as Nova Scotia. Famous for its majestic coastline, amazing beaches, and home to one of Canada’s most enchanting places, the Cape Breton Highlands, but if you are on the lookout for the best iconic Canadian Music then New Glasgow is the place to be in Nova Scotia this summer for the 24th Riverfront Jubilee. We chat with Jubilee organizers about the 3-day event that is affectionately called, “The Jube” to find out how they have been so successful over the past 23 years and what Jube goers can expect from this year’s event. We have all attended a festival, concert, sporting event or some other type of mass gathering, but have you ever thought about all the work that goes into that event before the lights come on and your favorite team takes to the field or before your favorite artists or entertainers takes the stage. Well Dan Barry, President and Owner of the PEI-based event security company Toursec has, in fact he has built a business on doing just that. As he says it, Toursec works in one industry – Entertainment, and if you are going to an event or hosting one, you want Dan, the ultimate “Professional Worry Wart” and his trained and professional team behind the scenes and in the crowd. In this month’s issue we chat with Dan about Toursec and their focus on making your event memorable for all the right reasons. When we hear about declining bee populations in the news, and you think who should we bee calling? Well, Brian and Owen Manzer, the founders of Manzer Apiary Inc are the brains behind the E-Z Hive, a modified top bar beehive, have already answered the call and are capturing the attention of researchers and hobby beekeepers alike. Spotlight on Business Magazine spoke with Manzer brothers about their knowledge- based start-up success story – one that has the potential to make a positive global impact (not to mention an impact on Digby County’s future).
