Friends of the Big Brum Buz

We are a not for profit organisation aiming to promote and unite the citizens of Birmingham. The concept is a chain bracelet - linking and uniting everyone together - everyone is a Brummie! To keep the bus on the road we need funding so if you would like to support and become a Friend of the Big Brum Buz please –please contact Sue at Birmingham Tours on 0121 427 2555/078051 15998 or email enquiries@birmingham-tours.co.uk. Friends of the Big Brum Buz are really important and I thank everyone who believes that Birmingham - the second city should have a bus. The bus is the perfect vehicle for sponsorship as it has a high profile and will feature in many events in 2014. It is a tourist attraction in its own right as well as an ambassador for the city promoting community awareness and harmony. Check out the Big Brum Open Top Buz page for ideas on how you can use the bus.

PROMOTIONAL IDEAS FOR 2014

PROMOTIONAL QUIZ QUESTION

Birmingham Tours website has a google ranking of PR4 and an average of 2500 hits a day. Recently, we were paid £250 to put a link on our website - how cool is that!

Would you like to participate in a promotional event we are doing this year? I am running a promotional quiz and offering a free ticket on the Big Brum Open Top Buz once a week. Your venue could be the basis for the question and to answer the question the person has to visit your venue, thereby increasing visitor numbers and overall awareness of your attraction. We would be happy to put the question, image and link to your website on our home page in return for appropriate support. To download further information click here.

PROMOTIONAL HOTEL & GROUP ORGANISERS OFFER

We would like to put forward a suggestion to all group organisers and hotels in and around Birmingham that we all promote Days Out in Birmingham. If you are a group organiser Birmingham is a superb place to hold an event offering a central location, convenient relaxed access combined with a unique experience. If you are a hotel you can increase the length of stay for guests thereby obviously increasing your revenue by providing added value. At the point of group booking rather than be unsure of what Birmingham has to offer you can put forward an appropriate proposal for any time of the year. Hotel staff are welcome on the bus at any time when it is running free of charge and we are very happy to provide fam trips for both staff and guests to celebrate what Birmingham has to offer. To download further information click here.

PROMOTIONAL CHARITY OFFER

Any of our bus or walking tours can be used for charity events. Someone contacted me recently and said that people were bored being asked for money with nothing in return - so true! However, they also did not understand how they could use any of our tours to raise money so for further information please click here.
