Our pop-up Visitor Servicing team is available to enhance your event experience for both participants and spectators. In addition to offering valuable on-site information on things to see and do in Surrey beyond the competition, we provide digital promotional materials that you can share with your attendees. We can even create a custom flyer specifically for your event, promoting local attractions, walking trails, bird-watching locations, dining recommendations, and team-building activities. Our local experts not only serve as enthusiastic ambassadors but also help you promote the best of Surrey to your event’s audience.
