Actividades en Enero - Abril 2016   


Ferias: En Marzo he ido a dos ferias de golf:  - Finlandia: Helsinki, "Golf Expo", 4-6 de marzo.  - Escocia: Glasgow, "The Scottish Golf Show", 18-20 de marzo. En ambas ferias hemos participado cómo co-expositores con un touroperador local lo cual ha sido una estratégia buena para reducir gastos y crear más relación con el touroperador. En Finlandia hubo casi 20.000 visitantes y en Escocia llegaron a ser casi 16.000 visitantes durante los 3 dias de feria. De cara al futuro diría que la feria de Helsinki es mejor que la de Glasgow dado que los finlandeses demuestren más interés en nuestro producto y tienden a reservar más su viaje de golf con un touroperador local. En Glasgow podía notar que muchos escoceses siempre van a Algarve o Costa del Sol, y muchas veces lo montan ellos mismos, sin la ayda de un touroperador.  Visitar la ferias ha sido financiado por el Patronat de Turisme de la Diputació. Prensa y Revistas: En Marzo hemos salido con una media página en English Club Golfer, una publicación que llega a todos los clubs de golf de Inglaterra. Financiado a través del Patronat de Turisme de la Diputació de Tarragona-Costa Daurada. IGTM: Nos hemos registrado para la IGTM que se celebra en Mallorca entre 14-17 de noviembre.  Producción de videos: Entre 22-30 de Abril grabamos video de los campos de golf y de los hoteles. Hubo 2½ dias de mal tiempo (de los 7 disponibles), lo cual nos complica un poco la producción pero en Mayo grabaremos más video para completar la producción. Esperemos tener los videos ya listos para finales de junio. Mandaremos los videos a cada miembro para su aprobación antes de publicar. No habrá posibilidad de hacer cambios "artísticos" en los videos dado que requiere mucho trabajo y estamos intentado crear una imagen común. No obstante, un miembro siempre puede negar que se publique el video que hemos creado si no lo ve oportuno. Estadísticas primavera 2016: Detalles de ventas se presentará a finales de junio. Famtrips: En Abril hemos recibido famtrips de 4 touroperadores de golf de Noruega, Finlandia, Suiza e Irlanda. La empresa de Irlanda ya nos está vendiendo y tenemos buenas perspectativas con los otros dos.  Newsletters: Seguimos saliendo con buena frecuencia a través de este canal de promoción. Redes Sociales: Durente estos meses hemos aumentando nuestra presencia en los redes sociales de Facebook, Twitter e Instagram y parece ser que nos da resultados. Aún es temprano decir cuánto negocio nos trae pero más adelante tenemos previsto hacer pruebas para ver el impacto de estos canales de promoción.  Facebook: Entre Enero - Abril hemos hecho 3 campañas de publicidad. Las estadísticas:  Impresiones: 103 024. Clics: 4020. Gasto: 571 euro. CostePorClic: 0,14 euro. CTR: 3,9% Google Adwords: En Enero hicimos una pequeña campaña en Google para promover nuestro destino. Hemos utilizado frases de búsqueda tipo: golf holidays, golf in costa daurada etc. Entre 2016-01-01 --- 2016-04-30 salen éstas estadísticas:  Impresiones: 47.555 Clics: 77. Gasto: 14 euro. CostePorClic: 0,18 euro. CTR: 0,16% Al no ver resultados lo quitamos pronto. The European Singles Trophy 2016: El evento empieza el 11 de Mayo y hemos conseguido un grupo de 35 pax que provienen de Inglaterra, Irlanda, Dinamarca, Alemania, Austria y Holanda. 35 pax es una buena cifra para manejar bién un grupo con este perfil. Grabaremos un video promocional para poder vender más plazas en el 2017.  Servicio de "Golf Shuttle": Hemos empezado a promover el "Golf Shuttle" y nos han llegado algunas reservas para primavera. Dado que salimos tarde al mercado con esa noticia pensamos que el otoño será más fuerte en cuanto a volumen de pax utilizando el shuttle. Bolsas de bienvenida: Ya estamos entregando bolsas de bienvenida a nuestros clientes. Hasta ahora la aceptación ha sido muy buena! Están muy agradecidos y se ve que realmente aprecian el detalle de que les regalemos algo.  Para cualquier consulta o pregunta no duden en contactar conmigo!

Day for Scotland   


Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the Day for Scotland festival in Stirling. I went with some family when I was 14 but to be honest I don’t remember too much other than it was a sunny day and I had a good time. Was probably the first festival I went to (other than the Glasgow Garden Festival of course, I still have my Coca Cola rollercoaster ticket).Last night, I “went” to an interesting online talk reminiscing about about the festival, with speakers of those who pro [...]





SINGAPORE, 24th October 2018 – Classic, understated and uncluttered, Clarks PURE concept store reflects its rich history and modern brand spirit.

Classic leather button-back seats on birch floors and soothing neutral colour palette walls with the use of natural materials such as oak and timber, the Pure store concept builds on the themes of simplicity and honesty. Positioned at the windows, illuminated light boxes and opal resin podiums create a gallery-like aesthetic for the collections. Brand and campaign imagery is displayed within the store for enhanced storytelling, while large-scale lightboxes are used to draw consumers in and further communicate key brand messages.

Flexible shelving systems now provide total flexibility in the way products are displayed and showcased. Following positive consumer reception of the launch in Manchester Market Street and Glasgow Buchanan Street, Singapore is the first city in Asia chosen to showcase the updated shopping environment.

Designed for Clarks stores all over the globe, the fundamental aspect of the new concept is to simplify the store’s surroundings and make the product the key focus. Seasonal stories - from shoes and boots to sandals and bags - will be executed through lightbox graphics displaying high impact brand imagery for enhanced storytelling and messaging.

Oak timber flooring and patina brass pendant lights above floating table displays will provide a premium and sophisticated look and feel with frosted acrylic and oak blocks showcasing key styles. Leather seating with rustic brass frames reflects the brand’s passion for premium materials, craft and authenticity, while large HD screens will inform customers of the latest key styles via campaign videos.

“One of the design concepts we created was called Pure. Pure links to honesty, which is very much the philosophy behind Clarks shoes. They use honest design and materials in their shoes and we wanted the store design to reflect that through the use of natural materials and truthful lighting.” said Architects and interior design specialists from Stiff & Trevillion who helped to execute the concept.

Designed to breath a new personality into the brand, the Pure concept will be rolled out to other South East Asian markets in the coming months.

“We want to offer this elevated brand experience with the Pure store design,” said Guillaume Nagy, President SEA & Oceania. “Singapore has an incredibly dynamic retail environment and we know the extension of Pure to ION Orchard will be well received by existing and potential consumers. It is the first retail initial initiative of many to be implemented in the city-state, turning Singapore into our flagship market and centre of excellence for the region”

“The focus of the store design was to make the shoe the star and to tell immersive stories that resonate with our consumers,” he added. “Pure helps us achieve both in a way that is authentic to Clarks.”

Beginning October 2018, customers can visit Clarks store Orchard ION to enjoy the PURE shopping experience.

The Basic Principles Of Travelogues – Travellers’ Views – Places   


Early instances of travelogues were frequently colored, toned or coloured by pattern to increase the regarded realistic look of these scenes, in addition to their aesthetic charm. Distributors were prepared to purchase more expensive colour prints as travelogues could stay in brochures longer than funnies as well as dramas, which swiftly dated as the forms progressed.


The Open Road series was a platform for the experimental ‘New All British Friese-Greene Natural Colour Process’, and also the cinematographer Jack Cardiff recorded a series of travelogues for the Globe Home window firm, which were some of the earliest British Technicolor movies. The travelogue remained to find a location on the movie theater display into the 1970s, up until programs trends transformed and also the practice of coupling an attribute movie with supplementary shorts things finished.


These programs were frequently able to discover a balance between travel, social commentary as well as home entertainment in such a way that their forefathers in the cinema could hardly ever accomplish. The even more commercial side of the travelogue proceeded in collection such as Ticket (BBC, 1958-1960), Holiday (BBC, 1969-), and also Wish You Were Below …? (ITV, 1974-2003) which advised on holiday locations.


Some Ideas on Top 10 Travelogues Articles Of 2017 – Travelogues From … You Need To Know

Patrick Keiller’s London (1994) and Robinson precede (1996) mix urban British landscapes with the much more inner trip of the storyteller. Andrew Kötting’s Gallivant (1996) reveals the filmmaker taking a trip the coast of Britain with his 85-year-old granny, Gladys, as well as his disabled little girl, Eden. This cozy and engaging movie blends experimental cinema with an investigative spirit to produce an enchanting picture of Britain.


Ever before because I check out Andi’s blog post concerning Lucy Knisley and also treated myself to one of her publications I have had a distinctive yen for a travelogue or two. Autobiographical comics are my favourites, and if you combine that with an actual (or symbolic) journey then I am extremely definitely in my pleased place.


However when I ended up checking out Delisle’s works I desired much more travel comics as well as right here are a few of the ones that I discovered and also liked! Oliver East: Trains are … Mint Oliver East is the musician behind one of my all-time favourite comic publications Trains are … Mint. Not only does the title make me smile because of my enduring love for utilizing words ‘mint’ to define an excellent book/concert/cup of coffee/pub.


Some Known Questions About These 17 Best Travelogues Of 2017 Are All The Travel ….

That is not to claim that the subjects of East’s drawings are always lovely, actually far from it. East draws whatever that he sees on his walks, clutter, poor graffiti as well as hideous design are plentiful. Nevertheless when, provided in East’s soft and also streaky colours, even these things come to be a joy.


I have a soft area for social history and as I get older I progressively have a tendency to become a little sentimental when thinking concerning 18th and also 19th Century feats of engineering such as the railways so this comic is just the ‘s knees so far as I am worried.


Neil Slorance is a Glasgow based musician as well as comics creator that has actually written a charming series of travelogues in which he tells the different however connected tales of his trips to Barcelona, Berlin as well as Bordeaux. In these 3 comics Slorance muses on his preferred methods of taking a trip, tells the viewers where he went and also what he saw and likewise contemplates why it is he required to take place these certain trips at these times.

Do you remember....

"Sweets for My Sweet"; "Needles and Pins" "When You Walk in the Room"; "Sugar and Spice";  "Don't Throw Your Love Away"' "Love Potion No. 9" to name just a few …  the Searchers tied for the second group from Liverpool, after the Beatles, to have a hit in the US when their "Needles and Pins" and the Swinging Blue Jeans' "Hippy Hippy Shake" both reached the Hot 100 on 7 March 1964.
It’s little wonder then that most observers considered The Searchers to be the most successful and important Group, after the Beatles, in that quite wonderful period of Pop Music.

Originally founded as a skiffle group in Liverpool in 1959 by John McNally and Mike Pender (Mike Prendergast), the band took their name from the classic 1956 John Wayne western The Searchers.

The band grew out of an earlier skiffle group formed by McNally, with his friends Brian Dolan (guitar) and Tony West (bass). When the other two members lost interest, McNally was joined by his guitarist neighbor Mike Prendergast. They soon recruited Tony Jackson with his home-made bass guitar and amplifier and styled themselves Tony and the Searchers with Joe Kelly on drums. Kelly soon left to be replaced by Norman McGarry and it is this line-up—McNally, Pender (as he soon became known), Jackson and McGarry—that is usually cited as the original foursome.

McGarry did not stay long, however, and in 1960 his place was taken by Chris Crummey (who later changed his name to Curtis). Later that year Big Ron had a successful audition with Mecca and became a ballroom singer. He was replaced by Billy Beck, who changed his name to Johnny Sandon. The band had regular bookings at Liverpool's Iron Door Club as Johnny Sandon and the Searchers.

Sandon left the band in late 1961 to join The Remo Four in February 1962. The group settled into a quartet sharing the vocal lead and billed simply as The Searchers. They continued to play at the Iron Door, The Cavern, and other Liverpool clubs. Like many similar acts they would do as many as three shows at different venues in one night. They negotiated a contract with the Star-Club in the St. Pauli district Hamburg for 128 days, with three one-hour performances a night, starting in July 1962.

The band returned to a residence, at the Iron Door Club and it was there that they tape recorded the sessions that led to a recording contract with Pye Records with Tony Hatch as producer.

Hatch played piano on some recordings and wrote "Sugar and Spice"—the band’s second number one record—under the pseudonym Fred Nightingale; a secret he kept from the band at the time.

After scoring their monumental hit "Needles and Pins", bassist Tony Jackson went solo and was replaced by Hamburg pal Frank Allen of Cliff Bennett and the Rebel Rousers.

Chris Curtis left the band in 1966 and was replaced by the Needles and Pins-influenced John Blunt, who in turn was replaced by Billy Adamson in 1970.

As musical styles evolved, the Searchers could not keep up and as a result, the hits ran out and while they continued to record for Liberty Records and RCA Records, ended up on the British "Chicken in a Basket" circuit although they did score a minor US hit in 1971 with "Desdemona".

The group continued to tour through the 1970s and were rewarded in 1979 when Sire Records signed the band to a multi-record deal. Two albums were released by them, The Searchers and Play for Today (retitled Love's Melodies outside the UK). Both records garnered great critical acclaim but did not break into the charts. They did however revitalize the group's career. According to John McNally, the band were ready to head into the studio to record a third album for Sire when they were informed that due to label reorganization, their contract had been dropped.

In 1981, the band signed to PRT Records (formerly Pye, their original label) and began recording an album but only one single, "I Don't Want To Be The One" backed with "Hollywood", saw the light of day at that time. The rest of the tracks would be released as part of 2004's 40th Anniversary collection.

In 1985 Mike Pender left The Searchers to form his own group. His aim was, and still is to this day, to faithfully recreate the sound and feel of those Hit Recordings and at the same time introduce other material that compliments Mike's unique voice and guitar style.

In 1988, Coconut Records signed The Searchers and the album Hungry Hearts was the result. A very contemporary sounding release, it featured modern sounding remakes of "Needles and Pins" and "Sweets For My Sweets". While the album was not a major hit, it did keep the group in the public eye.

The Searchers are still going strong today and hold a significant fanbase worldwide.

The band members are:

John McNally - original member and founder, 6string/12 string guitarist and vocals

Frank Allen - bass guitarist, vocals and front man

Spencer James - guitar synth and lead vocals

Scott Ottaway – on drums.
