West Sussex County Council will shortly be inviting marketing and consultancy providers to tender to deliver services for the Experience West Sussex tourism marketing campaign.

This work started in 2015 from an identified need to promote West Sussex to a new, younger target market, including from London and the wider South East. The main focus was to promote West Sussex as a place to visit and stay, based on the ‘best’ of what the County has to offer the audience. The campaign includes a website www.experiencewestsussex.com as well as social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram (@experiencewestsussex ) and Twitter (@expwestsussex).

The Council would like to present the opportunity and consult with providers to explore and discuss the services we require to take the campaign forward.

The Council is holding two short briefings in August 2017- providers interested in learning more and engaging with the Council should see the Additional Information section for further information.
