With nearly 300 markets already signed up for this year LYLM we thought it would be nice to give you an idea of which areas are taking part and it looks like the coverage is fantastic.
Thanks to our Roadshows, social media campaign and collaborations with partners such as the NMTF a whopping 62% of this years registrations did not take part last year, so the Love Your Local Market message is really getting out there which is great news.
Of those registered 85% are going to be offering pitches to new traders, so we are well on target to reach our goal of 3000 pitches being made available this year. Our launch event is taking place in the world famous Portobello and Golborne Market in London and they are offering 300 pitches to new traders for just £10, so with this market taking 10% of our allocation, who knows we could just exceed our target.
There are so many ideas coming about this year’s LYLM, it seems that markets really are capturing the public imagination once more…..
Please remember, if you are taking part this year, to send us in details of what you are planning so that we can tweet and Facebook them as well as add them to our News Feed. We also need your pictures and videos so we can talk about them too, but also to promote you further through our Pinterest site, that is really proven to be a driver of traffic to your markets.
