The End of Summer Bash
The End of Summer Bash with The Escapes and Derek Pitts and the Bullets was a concert event that I produced, organized and hosted at Ocean Park Hall on August 25, 2018. It was an incredible success with tickets sold out and the room packed for both bands that played. Tickets were sold at $15, and mostly consisted of pre-sales. I was responsible for all of the marketing prior to the event as well as making sure everything was running smoothly the day of.
For marketing materials we decided to get posters and physical tickets printed. We also sold tickets online through Eventbrite. I wrote a media advisory and pitched it to all of the major local newspapers. The release resulted in an article written by local reporter Alex Browne. The article was published in the Surrey Now-Leader, Peace Arch News and the Cloverdale Reporter. It can be found here. We had the poster for the event designed by a local graphic designer.
Attached below is the official media advisory that I sent out for the End of Summer Bash.
