Becoming a host is super easy! All we ask from you is your help in recruiting 12 secret locations to take part in the game and to support our marketing campaign.
In exchange you’ll enjoy all of these great benefits:
- The games are organised and played in direct conjunction with local businesses and are a great opportunity for them to increase their visibility, brand and footfall. They can even create specific cross-promotional campaigns to bring in secondary-spending.
- As the lead on deciding locations you will be able guide players to areas of your centre that you might wish to highlight and increase footfall in.
- The events will be presented by you in partnership with Casebook Events. As the lead presenter of the event the opportunity for exposure and to generally raise your profile are fantastic.
- Where available we can incorporate and promote locally provided or sponsored WIFI.
- A branded visitor map can be including in every case-file.
- Users can be directed to your website as the event will be hosted there with a link to our online ticket sales.
- The BID/Council can further raise its profile by offering the public unique discount codes.
- The date of the event can be decided by you (subject to availability) to fit in with the current events calendar.
- Since the story is woven into local history and culture it highlights unique features of the centre that will get people to look beyond the usual shopping experience.
- We will give under 12’s free entry to play a mini-mystery alongside the adult game in order to encourage families to take part.
