Promote your Event / Business

We have lots of opportunities available for businesses and events to get involved. Whether this is taking out an advert in the brochure, joining us in a Creative Partnership or promoting your business through our Whilst in D&G section. The layout of Spring Fling 2018 brochure will be similar to the one of the 2017 brochure which you can view here: www.spring-fling.co.uk/brochure

For 2017, we rejuvenated its design and format with a contemporary layout and the new Spring Fling logo and fonts.  We maintained the same advertisement rates with advertising confined to the last pages in the brochure. We are bringing in more design features for 2018 and will be offering new advertising positions throughout the brochure which will enable visitors to see your advert in relation to the route they are following. We are also delighted to announce that Brighteye Design will be producing all Spring Fling print production.

Changes to 2018 Advertising:

In order to provide a more cohesive visitor experience we have changed advert and advertorial positions in the brochure.

General advertising will be available in the route sections as well as the designated advertising sections of the brochure. These are limited to 2 adverts per route and will be on a first-come-first serve basis. Businesses/events advertising in the route sections should be on that route/in that area. We will continue to offer advertising in the designated advertising area of the brochure and therefore offer something for everyone in terms of advertising needs.

Gallery advertorials will now be in each route section, however, these are limited to 2 advertorials per route and will be on a first-come-first serve basis. Galleries in that route section will be on that route. This aims to provide brochure users and visitors to the event with a comprehensive insight into that area/route and give businesses a greater advertising opportunity. Should you not manage to book an advertorial, galleries can still take out a regular advert.

All other advertising conditions will still apply. Please see the rates and information below.

Advertorials - Local Galleries

All Gallery advertorials will now be found on the route that they’re on.

We are offering 2 gallery adverts per route, bookings will, therefore, be on a first-come-first-serve basis. There will be two galleries per page and each gallery will have a dot on the map in the brochure and the Spring Fling website. This is a great opportunity for galleries to become more integrated into the brochure and our route system. It gives galleries the chance to be a part of their route and will hopefully present visitors with a better understanding of what that route/area has to offer.

Advertorials on your route cost £500.00

Galleries are also welcome to take out an advert in the main advert section – costs as above.
