We are delighted to announce that Brighton business Brandwatch, the world's leading social intelligence group, has signed up as Headline Sponsor for Snailspace, this autumn’s must-see public art event.

Speaking about their decision to back the Snailspace event, Katja Garrood, Creative Director at Brandwatch said: “We are very excited to be involved in this project as, despite being a global company, our hometown is Brighton. It is fantastic to be able to participate in and help facilitate an inclusive event that is good for the whole city, whilst at the same time helping Martlets, which provides such an important service for our community."

She continued: “There is a synergistic relationship between Brighton and Brandwatch’s success. Our people are consistently rated as one of the best things about our business. Being able to make a difference helps towards building a positive work culture, which in turn helps us build great products. Snailspace is an event we know our staff will love being part of, as well as offering them plenty of creative opportunities. It’s a real win-win. We’ve always been pioneers in our space and we love that this campaign offers us a chance to really celebrate that spirit of innovation.”

Imelda Glackin, CEO Martlets Hospice shared her delight in signing a partnership with Brandwatch: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Brandwatch as Headline Sponsor for Snailspace. By backing this campaign Brandwatch will help ensure that this event goes on to raise significant funds for patient care and our vital community services. However, more than this, having Brandwatch on board is a real endorsement of the importance and impact of the event on the city as a whole. It is a unique opportunity for Martlets, our event partners and sponsors. We are very excited to see what new opportunities and developments this partnership may bring.”

The Headline Sponsorship package will include two giant gastropods for Brandwatch on the Snailway, alongside a range of PR and marketing benefits. With their design, engineering and social media expertise, the team at Brandwatch are already brainstorming ideas for their snails and bespoke technical innovations. One of the giant snails is going to make its home in the company’s head office so it may not be long until it has a ‘Brandwatch’ makeover or at least its own social media accounts.

The Snailspace campaign, by Martlets Hospice, in partnership with Wild in Art, has already attracted more sponsors than the highly successful Snowdogs by the Sea and there are just a few more weeks until the deadline. So, anyone interested in sponsoring should not #BeMoreSnail, but get in touch with the Snailspace team as soon as possible.
