Weymouth BID will be supporting the Weymouth Carnival this year.

Weymouth BID will be supporting the Weymouth Carnival this year.

Weymouth BID already supports a number of events as part of its 5 year business plan which aims to bring new business and footfall into Weymouth.  These include Waterfest, the Big Christmas Event, Feast Weymouth and most recently Out Loud Festival. 

BID Chair, Steve Newstead of Wetherspoons, says "The 50,000 visitor footfall during Carnival week is significant.  By supporting this traditional Weymouth event, we are able to raise the profile of the 'We Are Weymouth' brand and visitor website which promotes all the activities and events in the area all year round."

"The We Are Weymouth stand will be at the Carnival so come and find out what other great events and promotions are planned for 2015 both as a visitor and resident and the potential other sponsorship opportunities for businesses," continues Steve.

The Weymouth BID came to the aid of the Weymouth Carnival in conjunction with other businesses who wanted to make sure the event took place this year.
 
Ryan Hope, Chair of the Weymouth Carnival committee said "Without the support of the BID and other businesses, the committee would have had to make serious cuts and amendments to the Carnival attractions, now we can ensure that we have a family fun packed day of entertainment which will bring 1000's of people into the town as it always has done"

Nigel Reed, Manager of the Weymouth BID said "The BID understands the importance of creating great events as a recognised way of attracting footfall into the Town. Apart from financial support the BID is also able to help promote the Carnival using its social media and own marketing through We Are Weymouth to support the Carnival committee. We wish the Weymouth Carnival every success in 2015."
