LJLA partner with Marketing
Liverpool to showcase Merseyside to senior airline officials
SENIOR Management from Liverpool John
Lennon Airport (LJLA) are heading to Aberdeen with colleagues from Marketing
Liverpool to promote the Airport and the Liverpool City Region to over 1,000
delegates at the 2015 Routes Europe aviation conference.
The event takes place from 12 April to 14 April 2015 and is an annual gathering
of Europe's top airlines and airports and is seen as the meeting place for
Europe's airport/airline route development industry.
LJLA already has meetings with senior officials from 16 airlines confirmed.
Often described as:- 'speed dating' for airports and airlines,
airports have the opportunity to meet with airlines for 20 minutes before moving
on to their next meeting.
Marketing Liverpool will have a stand at the conference to showcase all the
attributes of the Liverpool City Region to delegates, whilst Liverpool FC have
kindly provided their Champions League trophy to be put on display for delegates
to view too.
The event is viewed as one of the most cost effective ways to build
relationships with airlines from all over Europe and to promote the Airport and
the City region to the aviation industry.
It was at last year's event in Marseille that the Airport took the opportunity
to meet with Romanian airline Blue Air for the 1st time.
Further discussions and agreement followed,
with the airline commencing a 3 times weekly service from Liverpool to Bucharest
in December 2014 and a twice weekly service to Bacau which started last week.
Mark Povall, Director of Air Service Development, who will be attending the
event commented:- "It is important that we showcase not just the
capabilities of the airport to airlines but what the Liverpool City Region has
to offer too. By working closely with our partners at Marketing Liverpool
we can demonstrate the demand for new airline services linked to both business
and leisure travel for both outbound and inbound markets."
Chris Brown, director of Marketing Liverpool, said:- "Liverpool John
Lennon Airport is an extremely important asset to the City region's aspirations
to grow its economy. It has been striving to attract more routes and recent
successes such as the new Flybe route to Amsterdam provide a massive boost to
our visitor economy and inward investment prospects. However there is a lot more
potential here and, together, we will use these wins as a springboard to create
further opportunities, which is why our joint attendance at the forthcoming
European Routes conference is so important."

Did you go to the Easter
ON 8 April 2015, the Morning Gloryville,
an early morning dry rave held in Liverpool City Centre, coincided with the
school holidays, so it was even more popular than ever! The event had a wide
range of activities for those attending to take part in; including many one off
special Easter Bunny delights! The event's Easter theme meant it's
activities were as the organisers put it:- "Fun for all the family, no
matter if they where babies, toddlers, teenagers, early 20's, middle aged 'kids'
from the original rave scene, parents, grandparents, rabbits and unicorns..."
Activities included:- table climbing, massage, yoga and it would not be
a rave with out dance! "We had an amazing line up with tunes from DJ
Namina, Mark Armstrong and a very special guest to catapult you into the day,
Easter Bunny!" said the event organisers… These events we are told
let you to take off for the mask off and let those attending unleash the inner
you! The only rules are sobriety and authenticity. Gloryville DJ Stef Maggio
said:- "The beauty of the event is that old time ravers who haven't been
able to go out clubbing due to the constraints of having young families, now get
to go out clubbing again... and you don't even need a babysitter!"
If you do not know what Morning Gloryville is, it seeks to improve people's
feeling of well being and aims at tackling many issues of mental health,
striving to lift people's energy and grow a strong and supportive community.
This event was in partnership with the
Foundation of Art and Creative Technology, who used it as part of their latest
exhibition Group Therapy: Mental Distress in a Digital Age, which explores the
complex relationship between technology, society, and mental health. The
Climbing Hangar also joined up with Morning Gloryville for the Easter Special,
bringing their bouldering facility where you could have experienced a short
climb without ropes, thankfully over crash pads! The Climbing Hangar Managing
Director, Gearoid MacDomhnaill said:- "If you can rave in the morning,
it's a small leap to consider a regular table as a fun to climb on and it really
is, as one of our most popular challenges in Liverpool's biggest climbing
facility. Like our Centre and the MGV events, we have great fun subverting
expectations and making everyone welcome with challenges suitable for people who
see things from a different angle, like a table from underneath or yoga on the
Organisers of the Morning Gloryville said
that:- "We wish to thank all who took part, especially our sponsors, along
with the Climbing Hangar, Lush Spa Liverpool, Samantha Langton, June O'Rourke
Lowe and Elizabeth Anne from Karma Therapies who provided massage all morning,
alongside the Yoga classes, thanks to Jess Sawyer, Yoga Bears and Carlianne
Perry. Resident Goodness Suppliers Oh My Goodness raw juice bar was also so
relaxing..." So did you attended this eggtremely unusual event?
