A new multimedia campaign has been launched to encourage visitors to ‘Experience Bushmills’.
The campaign is intended to generate business and promote Bushmills as a unique destination in its own right using multiple local websites and media outlets. The Town Centre Experience Fund opened for grants up to a maximum of £4,000 in November. The total Pilot Programme fund was £40,000. Groups of traders/town centre stakeholders were encouraged to work together to introduce new experiences, activities, marketing or event development for their respective town centre. The purpose of the grant was about bringing different ideas together and developing cohesive thinking around activities that can improve the town centre experience. These could have been commercial, community or cultural experiences which would contribute to the vibrancy of the town centre and generate more engagement in the town.
The Experience Bushmills multimedia campaign focuses on the myriad of vibrant local businesses from award winning eateries and accommodation to quality independent retailers, artisan crafters, traditional pubs and a wide range of unique experiences.
Experience Bushmills highlights the quality shopping experience on offer in the historic village from luxury boutiques stocked with products showcased at both London and Paris Fashion Week, stylish, high quality fashion brands to the charity shop where the odd designer bargain can be frequently found.
