Our Services

Get involved and reach a wider audience

Throughout the year, we have additional opportunities that you can be part of, to further put your business on the map. From advertising opportunities to trade shows, and marketing campaigns to business events prospects, we can help showcase your business to potential visitors worldwide.

Marketing Campaigns

Our destination marketing activities are far-reaching (local, regional, national and international) and span all marketing and communications channels, including broadcast TV, radio, print, digital, outdoor, PR and social media. We deliver at least four multi-channel destination marketing and PR campaigns each year. These are thematic in nature and focus on:

  • Specific Sectors – such as Night-Time Economy or Independent Retail
  • Seasonal – typically Summer and Christmas
  • Target Audiences – these might be Pre-School Families or Adventurous Singles
  • Product Themes – such as Medieval History or Sport and Wellbeing

We also collaborate with others on their own campaigns, including Visit Britain, Visit England, West Midlands Growth Company and Coventry Business Improvement District (BID). These opportunities are often used to amplify our own campaigns, as well as delivery of standalone activity aligned to a particular theme. Our most recent campaigns have included:

  • Food & Drink – shining a light on Coventry’s ever-developing food and drink offer and encouraging visitors to sample our fast-evolving, hugely diverse and high-quality product. The campaign included the launch of our hugely successful Coventry & Warwickshire Foodie Awards.
  • Business Events – a PR campaign promoting Coventry & Warwickshire as a compelling and safe destination for business visits, events and exhibitions, whilst highlighting our outstanding venues and the major events taking place in the region throughout 2021 and 2022.
  • Summer City Breaks – a key theme of Visit England’s Escape the Everyday campaign has been city breaks. We worked with them to highlight Coventry as a city destination of choice. This included hosting a social media influencer in the city, a takeover of Visit England’s Instagram channel, and an inspirational blog on the Visit England website, alongside our own Summer City Breaks campaign.
  • Welcome Back – a collaboration with City Council colleagues to deliver the multi-channel Explore Coventry campaign, backed by the ERDF Welcome Back Fund, which aims to support the return to high streets safely and help build back better from the pandemic.
  • Winter Wishes – a big budget campaign focusing on city events, food and drink, seasonal product offering and shopping. Aimed at a broad target audience, the campaign positioned Coventry as a choice festive destination to rival its neighbours, with channels including TV, radio, social media, PR, outdoor, digital, and print.
