South Ayrshire Council could look for printing company in Ayr to help promote Burns Night festivities
March 17, 2011 by Lyndon
South Ayrshire Council recently put out a tender for a company to manage events for the next Burns Night celebrations in the region. The council is looking to host a festival celebrating the life and works of Robert Burns, the poet who many people consider to be the national poet of Scotland. Robert Burns was born near Ayr and so the celebration of Burns Night is always a big occasion for both local residents and the local authority, so it makes sense that the council would aim to appoint a company capable of holding an event that would be sufficient to mark the occasion. Whilst the council is largely looking for a company to manage the events on Burns Night, they will also need a printing company in Ayr who is able to be on hand to provide services like banner, brochure and poster printing. Ayr is an area that is home to several local businesses which would be capable of making a valuable contribution to the running and promotion of the Burns Night event. Local printing companies already offer poster printing service to Ayr businesses and have already produced work for local authorities so this challenge would no doubt be relished.
South Ayrshire Council is expected to announce the appointment of the main company who will be set to oversee the Burns Night events around the 18th of March. It will then be up to local printing companies in Ayr to approach the council themselves to see if they can be of assistance in terms of printing, promotion or advertising.
