The Caister Weekender has regularly sold out at least a month before the event and future events will be no exception. That is why we are able to offer various commercial opportunities for selected companies and individuals that want to play a bigger part in the weekender.
Below you will find details for various kinds of activity however this is not an exhaustive list. The Caister Weekender promotions team are always looking at new ideas and suggestions and would be happy to discuss any plans that third parties may have.
There are various points throughout the site that can be set-aside for POS material and / or teams to promote your brand. As the extent of each promotion varies all costs will be looked at individually.
Sampling has been one of the most popular ways of getting brands in front of guests at the Caister Weekender there is the opportunity for you distribute samples to each person attending the event within individual rooms and VIP areas or even distribute products directly to acts appearing at the weekender. Sampling can take place at:
Individual Rooms or in every room on any night of your choice.
On arrival along with event programme distribution.
By delivery to each individual unit of accommodation, before or during the event.

Your company product or logo can be printed on the Lanyards used at every event at a very reasonable cost.
Within the main arena there are pitches available for retailers to set up stalls. These have proven to be very profitable in the past as they are in high footfall areas.
Caister Weekenders produce thousands of programme's for every event. They given away free to everyone who attends the event, as well as to guests, artistes, staff and as official souvenirs, etc.
About a third of the programme's produced for each Weekender are then sent out in the post immediately after each event to people enquiring about the next Caister Weekender and our other events. They serve as our advance advertising and are obviously a great promotional tool, both at the Caister Weekender and beyond.
