Publication date:  27-08-2020
Response deadline:  17-09-2020 11:00   Irish time
Procedure: 1. Open Procedure (NON OJEU)
Description: Shelly Place is a voluntary community group that formed in the recession to provide a community-led response to supporting the local economy by driving tourism to Sligo. We identified that “collaboration” was a characteristic of successful communities in Ireland and we set out to incorporate that way of working in all our activities. Shelly Place has a track record of delivering on promises; our group consists of commercially minded individuals. Our campaigns over three years were very successful and our philosophy of collaboration has been picked up within the local community. Although there is still a lot more to be achieved for tourism in Sligo, our focus has now changed to supporting Sligo’s national and international reputation of a great place to live and work with a real emphasis on work-life balance. Based on twelve months of brainstorming workshops and consultation, we have decided to develop an event that is based on balance, clear thinking and imagination (all properties of Sligo’s essence). This event will be rooted in Sligo, although not specifically about Sligo. It will present Sligo as an attractive example of work-life balance and a place for inspirational companies to set up. This tender is to create a full promotional and marketing strategy for the event, to include a suite of brand identity assets, and a comprehensive suite of marketing collateral for the event.
