EVENT – Jacqueline Wilson - Book Launch & Signing
VENUE – Butlin’s, Bognor Regis
NUMBERS – 400
DURATION – one day
VENUE MASTER UK LTD Were given the brief from Waterstones for author Jacqueline Wilson’s book launch and signing. They wanted something that was fun and would appeal to children and would require a venue to seat 400 people. Our venue finding team got to work straight away.
We proposed Butlin’s Bognor Regis because of the seaside theme and also as that was where the story was based in the book that was being launched. In addition we were able to use Red Coats to be present to show guests to their seats and also to assist with the Q&A session using roving microphones. Added to that it was easy for them to dress the room with beach themed items such as buckets, spades, beach balls, deck chairs etc.
The feedback following the event was excellent with the author herself quoted as saying ‘it was one of the best events she had been involved with’ Waterstones said that the event was fantastic and that the team were brilliant.
