Anyone taking part in this year’s Good Beer Week in May has until midnight tomorrow (January 18) to finalise their event details. A number of events were registered prior to Christmas with some aspects to be confirmed. The information entered on the Good Beer Week website at midnight tomorrow will be the information that appears in the official festival print and online programs.
All venues that registered to take part in the 2013 festival will have received emails reminding them to complete this information and also to upload one image and a logo for their event. If you have yet to finalise your event details, you can head to the festival website and login via the Venue & Event Registration link at the top of the page using the email address and password you set up last year. There, you will be able to access your event(s).
“The program launch takes place in March, which means the deadlines for the print program are looming large,” says marketing manager Kate Paterson. “We want to be able to send each venue their finished listing from the print program to be proofed before it goes to the printers, so it is essential that we have this information before the weekend.
“We have an amazing program that we can’t wait to reveal in March and are thankful to everyone who has registered and put so much thought and effort into their events. Now we just need a little more effort from those who haven’t fully completed their listings. Anyone with any questions can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The third Good Beer Week runs from May 18 to 26 at more than 100 venues across Melbourne and Victoria. The program will be launched in the middle of March.
“The Good Beer Week team is now seeking expressions of interest from potential sponsors. We have numerous packages available that will suit the budgets of anyone who wants to partner with the festival and align themselves with the Good Beer Week brand and the people and places that support it,” says Kate. “To find out more, email me at email@example.com.”
