Event postponed due to Covid-19. New date to be announced.
Michael Holland, Head of Marketing, for the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will give an exclusive insight into plans at an upcoming event in the city for Birmingham’s creative media and marketing industry.
In the first part of the evening he will outline the opportunities available for the creative, media and marketing sector in and around the city. This will be followed by a Q&A session and then finish with an informal networking session.
Members of the Birmingham Publicity Association are being given the chance to hear first hand the plans for the Commonwealth Games which are arriving in the city in just two years’ time.
As one of the biggest sporting and cultural events in the world, it will bring tens of thousands of people into the city, put Birmingham on the world stage and present opportunities for organisations from the largest international agencies through to the freelancer community.
An Audience With Michael Holland will be taking place on Thursday 2nd April where he will talk about the plans, timetable and key moments of the upcoming games. Audience members will then have the chance to ask questions and find out more about how they can benefit from this once in a lifetime event.
There are just 30 free spaces available to members for the event, being held at the Mediacom’s offices on Colmore Row in central Birmingham.
The event will be hosted by Mark McDonagh, chair of the Birmingham Publicity Association, and Mediacom director Paul Bramwell. Mark said: “This is a brilliant opportunity for creative, media and advertising sector within Greater Birmingham to speak directly with Michael and discover more about plans for the 2022 Games. The Question and Answer discussion with BPA members will cover how this might support their own planning and how to identify direct and indirect opportunities both for themselves and their clients.”
“It really is an evening not to be missed, and once again shows the benefits of being a member of such a worthwhile group within the city,” he added.
Tickets will be released on a first-come, first-served basis, and must be pre-registered through Eventbrite, with a £5 donation to Acorns Children’s Hospice, the BPA’s charity partner, for each ticket booked.
