Come along to our Callaghan campus and meet our students personally with space for sampling and brand activations available in popular student hang-outs such as Park on the Hill, the Auchmuty Courtyard, The Brennan Room and the Hunter Courtyard. This is the ideal opportunity for brands looking to grow their audience, promote an upcoming event, or to launch an exciting new product.
Have your brand associated with our trend-setting scholars and our energetic campus culture. Interested?
Activations can be booked at any time during semester periods and they don’t need to be complicated – but to be effective, you do need to think about how you will engage our student audience. Here are a few tips to consider:
- Make your activations simple and easy for students to interact with so they recollect your product.
- Free giveaways and samples always work well.
- Include a competition for students to win a prize.
Visit our online booking form for rates and to make your booking enquiry.
If you would prefer a bespoke activation for your brand submit your request to our Venue Management Team via firstname.lastname@example.org
