Campaign name: Somerset Exmoor Food & Drink Revolution

Outline of campaign
AM+A will run a summer-long, food and drink ‘media/influencer challenge campaign’ with the aim of generating content from a selection of travel influencers (Rough Guides, Lonely Planet), newspapers, magazines, YouTube and blogger platforms.
We will send UK food and drink influencers on a trail of Somerset and Exmoor’s foodie hotspots, where they will complete a series of workshops along the way. Their challenge will be to create the ultimate Somerset and Exmoor cider cocktail, paired with local produce gathered en route. The campaign will be supported by a series of food and drink itineraries for national media visits (food and drink producers, restaurants and food/drink producer workshops).

Further support will come from media food and drink travel round-ups and pitching focused on campaign themes.
London Event
The food and drink workshops and pairings developed in the media visit and pitching programme will form the basis of a Somerset and Exmoor in London event, to bring these cocktails and food/drink experiences to life.
