It’s the biggest [freshers fair] I’ve been to, a really good vibe and its really busy as well.
We found the Freshers’ Festival a really worthwhile event for the Relentless energy brand as it allowed us to speak directly to our consumers. We received fantastic support from the team and we can only thank them for their support. The feedback we had over the two days was terrific
We’ve spoken to a lot of student, had a lot of good sales and we look forward to coming again next year.
It has been absolutely amazing. Amazing atmosphere. Sensational!
The Freshers Festival has been fantastic for Maplin, it’s going to get us in touch with a lot of students.
Over the two days, we gave away thousands of free goody bags and spoke to various students from different colleges & universities about our services, which was a fantastic opportunity for us! We can’t wait to be back again next year.
We went through, in one day, 15kg of popcorn which is a significant amount! It was a really successful marketing tool for us.
The event was a great success for us in terms of how many people we spoke to and the amount of offers we managed to get out to the students. We have already started to see a return on it. Hopefully we can do the same again next year.
We’re getting a lot of leads and people to speak to… It has been a big success, we’ll be back next year. We’ve enjoyed ourselves.
I can honestly only say positive things about the whole event. My team really enjoyed it and all the free pizza!
It has definitely been the funnest Festival we’ve ever done!
Very happy. We managed to get over 1100 new signups from students and I believe this will have big impact on our restaurant in near future. Next year we will definitely want to attend again.
Young Scot found the Freshers Festival to be a really valuable tool to reach the student market and communicate with them about the services we have to offer. The response was above our expectations.
The Freshers Festival is the UK’s largest freshers fair, it is also the only student event which will allow you to reach thousands of students from all Universities and Colleges in the surrounding areas.
It’s more than that though. The Freshers Festival offers you the same professional exhibition environment that you will be used to from any other conference and exhibition you have attended. We value our clients and our attendees and understand the need to provide the best experience possible.
So whether you are promoting your brand, collecting data, recruiting, boosting your social media following or selling your products we have experience in helping you achieve those goals.
Oh and it’s also so much fun to attend and exhibit at, just ask any of our previous clients.
Yes definitely! We want your campaign to be a success and for you to become one of our many, many happy clients. Our job is to make sure you are well prepared and have a plan to make the most of the event and its associated media channels.
Also feel free to download our E-Book “Insight On… Student Face to Face Marketing” here for a few hints and tips to help get the most out of attending the Freshers Festivals and other freshers fairs.
Through the Freshers Festival we reach 100,000+ students per annum through the event and its associated digital, social, email and print channels.
However, as we have such strong links with academic institutions, halls of residences, decades of experience in the market and a great team of student marketing experts, content writers and brand ambassadors we can custom build and execute a campaign to suit your needs.
Also if you need a bit more help understanding the audience and creating your overall marketing strategy our sister organisation Insight Generation can assist. As the UK’s largest Audience Insight and Marketing Strategy Specialist aimed at the 16-35 audience Insight Generation are perfectly placed to help.
We have worked with hundred of organisations from charities and small, single-owner run businesses to blue chip recruiters and multinational brands. The Freshers Festival is a powerful marketing tool and we would love to discuss your requirements to show you how we can help you reach tens of thousands of students and achieve your marketing goals.
But don’t just take our word for it, have a look above to see what just a few of our previous clients have to say about the Freshers Festival.
We try to make the event as easy as possible for you to attend. To do this we provide your shell scheme exhibition stand, a table, chairs, free wifi and overnight stand cleaning. We can also provide electricity (depending on your requirements there may be an extra charge for this). Further information can be found within the Exhibitor’s Manual sent out after booking.
So in essence all you need to do is dress your stand, staff it and get ready for a busy (but very fun) couple of days.
No, we provide these options on the media pack as they suit the marketing needs and budgets of the majority of our clients but we are happy to discuss ad-hoc experiential options and stand sizes.
We also offer various sponsorship types if you are looking for opportunities above and beyond the exhibition stand options.
Feel free to send us an email ([email protected]) or call us on 0141 249 0903 to discuss your needs.
We would be delighted to have a conversation with you to see if we can help, though we’re sure we can. If not, at the very least, we’re happy to provide you with a sounding board for your student campaign and provide any advice we can.
