ON THE FRINGE
As all good collective members know, being Limited Edition means seeking out the most rebellious ideas to make your business stand out. With this in mind, for LE 2016 we’ve introduced FRINGE: our handpicked edit of new innovations that could add value to your business, whether it’s a tech start-up, concierge service or something entirely different.
Those attending LE 2016 will have the opportunity to visit our FRINGE exhibitors on the show floor to hear a five-minute pitch about their product or simply stop by for a chat. However, we’re so excited about some of the thought-provoking, forward-facing concepts that they’re bringing to the travel table that we thought it was worth introducing you all to the FRINGE class of 2016.
Whether you want to recreate a fam trip or inspire future travellers, YouVisit can help with their virtual reality marketing know-how (if you’ll be at LE 2016, remember to visit their FRINGE booth to experience how their collaboration with Visit West Hollywood is breaking LA stereotypes…).
We’ve already mentioned this new launch from Simon Rayner, designed to help you create successful press campaigns, coverage, marketing and social media presence without a large budget or team (remember: collective members can sign up for a free 20-minute strategy session with Simon now).
