Aberdeen Inspired was set up to represent the businesses that contribute to it. Our team need to hear from you, let us know how you think we can make the city a better place to live, work and visit.
Summer is here and our fun-filled programme of activities is really beginning to heat up. We have exciting events across the board, including our recently announced Bon Accord to Bayonets historical re-enactment extravaganza and with the exciting Wild Dolphins project now up and running it’s going to be a fantastic summer for showing off our city centre.
Our Easter programme of events was a real success and the buzz it created around the city centre gives us a great platform to build on over the summer. Levels of participation were really encouraging with 1,200 people enjoying the roller-skating and 400 falling head over heels for zorbing.
Our Civic Pride campaign continues to gather pace as more city centre businesses sign up and support our vision of an attractive and welcoming Aberdeen. To have big names such as John Lewis and McDonald’s roll up their sleeves and get involved has been a great coup and we expect others to climb on board in the near future. Also we hope you agree Union Street is looking well with our bunting and wonderful floral displays helping to ensure the heart of Aberdeen will sparkle this summer.
As an organisation we focus on driving footfall to the city centre and enhancing the experience of visitors while they are here. To that end we have invested in a sophisticated system of pedestrian behaviour technology to provide us with vital information about footfall and the way in which visitors move around the city centre.
The technology is state-of-the-art and we are really looking forward to using the results to shape improvements to your city centre experience.
Pride in your city centre is integral to everything we do here at Aberdeen Inspired and our commitment to facilitating genuinely sustainable positive change is unshakable. No one individual or organisation can achieve this so the continued evolution of a Team Aberdeen approach is absolutely vital.
