The University of Bradford is keen to showcase our fantastic city, its businesses and attractions at our key annual University Events. These are our Open Days (for prospective students) and Graduation ceremonies (for our graduates and their families) and we would like to extend an opportunity for organisations in the BID to get involved.
On Saturday 22 June we will host a Life in Bradford area at our Open Day. We would love businesses to get involved by attending the Open Day to give you the opportunity to promote the things you are doing, and reach an entirely new audience. As part of this we will be giving away a tote bag filled with goodies. It would be great if businesses could provide things to pop in the bag to help promote the city, what we offer, and to act as a post-event reminder of the great things visitors could experience (inside, and outside of the University) if they chose to study here. Visitors attend the Open Day from various locations across the UK, and it would be brilliant if we could work together to show them what it’s like to live in Bradford. If this is something you can support, please get in touch with Paula Hibbert, Recruitment & Marketing Events Officer firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Graduation Ceremonies run from 16-18 July and see 1000 students and the family and friends celebrating at the University. We would like to encourage them to visit the City and use the bars, restaurants and shops. Our idea is to develop a flyer for all graduates giving offers for outlets in Bradford to be redeemed on these days. We hope this will drive them to the City Centre and will be an opportunity to promote your services. If you are interested in giving an offer, whether it is a discount or a freebie, please email email@example.com for more details.
