All new 10th edition of CQ Mini Guide now available

Thirty thousand copies of the tenth edition of the CQ Mini Guide have been produced and will be available to visitors to the area from next week.

The Guides will be available through Art Boxes across the County, Derby Sales & Information Centre, Cathedral Quarter businesses and locations throughout the city.

The tenth edition has seen a complete redesign with an updated map, revised text and images as well as updated information on everything to see and do in the Cathedral Quarter.

GB High Street Promotional opportunities

Winning the 'City Location' category of the Great British High Street Awards in December represents an excellent opportunity to promote the Cathedral Quarter and its businesses to visitors.

To this end, the BID has produced posters and window stickers that businesses can display on their premises to show their support for the Cathedral Quarter and to promote it as the UK's 'Best City Location'.

The Cathedral Quarter Rangers, Jon and Scott, will also be visiting businesses with the award to take photos which can then be used on social media to promote the Cathedral Quarter and your business; using the @GBHighSt tag opens posts up to a much wider audience.

Should you wish to obtain posters and window sticker or request a time for the Rangers to visit to take photos to be used to promote your business, please contact the BID office on 01332 419053 or via email.

With the new year upon us now is a good time to review the offers your business has in place for Cathedral Quarter Loyalty card holders.

Employees of Cathedral Quarter businesses can also apply for a FREE I Work in the Cathedral Quarter loyalty card enabling them to access some of the fantastic offers currently available at Cathedral Quarter businesses.
