I’ve been based in the office for most of the week so I’ve had a chance to catch up on what’s been going on in Carlton head office lately. I’ve been getting filled in on all the latest campaigns and marketing activities and as always am delighted to see there’s plenty of activity going on. The big focus for the next few weeks is our wedding giveaway competition where we will give one lucky Facebook fan a free wedding at a Carlton Hotel of their choice. Our online team showed me how it will work and I must admit it looks very impressive and it’s sure to prove very popular with brides to be.
The idea for the competition came from the fact that this year is a Leap Year and according to tradition is a popular time for females to propose. What our team have designed is an app that allows our female fans to ‘propose’ to their significant others through our Facebook page. Before you think we’re gone mad its just a bit of fun and its mainly targeting people who are already engaged, we are not expecting it to be the new trend in proposing! We’ve had hundreds of entries so far and as its running for a few weeks I’m sure there will be plenty more!
While we’re on the subject of weddings I must mention that both the Carlton Millrace Hotel in Wexford and the Carlton Castletroy Park Hotel in Limerick are hosting wedding showcases this weekend so make sure to call in if your planning on getting married. Who knows you might actually win your wedding in one of these hotels!
My weekend as usual will be taken up with rugby and I hope you all enjoy yours whatever you’re up to and make sure to cheer on Ireland tomorrow as they take on Italy!
