What you can expect

Inspired by the huge success of Airbnb's 'Night At' campaign, participants will focus on campaign planning for their own brands and how to take a concept or big idea through to an actual attainable experience, right at Jersey Zoo.

 On Thursday afternooon, you'll be looking at a product and dissecting the way you showcase it. Focus on visitor experience, the creative ways to show off your destination and ultimately telling rich and colourful stories will be at the forefront of this workshop. It's ideal for participants wanting to hone their strategy, since Nick will go through the stages of developing a winning campaign concept that's matched with an incredible product experience.
On Friday, you will be taken out by a true photographic talent, Conor MacNeill.  You'll get to meet some of the most inspiring keepers and take photos of the orang-outans or the bats. This workshop brings a huge creative mix together through multiple perspectives and a strategic work.
