European Aquatics Championships in London, May 2016

A personal message from Ryan Bangs, Marketing & Communications Manager LEN European Aquatics Championships 2016.

My name is Ryan and I look after everything media, comms, PR and marketing for the European Aquatics Championships that are taking place at the London Aquatics Centre in May. I hope this message finds you well.

I wanted to introduce myself and just let you know that I have contacted a few of the Regional Club Development Officers to share a bit of an update on the Championships seeing as there are now less than two months to go. Essentially, as an OC we absolutely want as many diving, synchronised swimming and swimming clubs in the UK to be able to come to London to watch the action unfold.

Any support you can give in helping us communicate to clubs would be very much appreciated. Ticket sales are going well, the weekend swimming finals are no longer available and we released extra tickets for the men’s 10m platform diving final, which was previously unavailable, last month.

Tickets for groups of ten or below can be bought from here https://www.theticketfactory.com/euroaquatics/online/. For bookings of more than ten we have a dedicated number to call, which is 0800 358 0058.

We believe our prices to be reasonable considering the way the sports market is going with synchronised swimming starting at £10, diving at £15 and swimming at £20. We also have discounts if you purchase certain sessions during the first five days.

As mentioned, we want absolutely as many people as possible from clubs that are interested in aquatics to experience and benefit from the Championships. In order for us to further reach out to clubs, I shared with the Officers a downloadable link with various posters and leaflets that we have had produced. For your reference the link to these is here: http://we.tl/tYyh9eVxpZ

If there is anything else that you think would work particularly well then do please let me know. I am very keen to work collaboratively together so anything you might need from me, please do just say.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks in advance,

Ryan
