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 email@example.com
