Project Brief

To provide a half-day seminar in order to provoke a wider understanding of national best practice. Delivering a keynote speech, the session included a workshop facilitated by us, where ideas put forward helped stimulate objectives to improve footfall, dwell time, the development of stall layouts and systems employed in order to increase sales and raise legislative standards. 

Plain Fresh Solution

In advance of the seminar we carried out an SEO audit of the markets offer in the region, allocating time within the talk to include strategies to improve online visibility. Legislative requirement and practical solutions for systems and stall layout where delivered in a visually appealing way offering a mix of practical solutions and basic social media training.

Result

Thirty-two people comprising a mix of market organisers, stallholders and officers from Wealden’s Community and Regeneration team, attended on the day. The animated question session before the workshop, chaired by the Vice Chairman of Wealden, stimulated local examples of best practice and the workshop produced pathways for a regional identity.
