Marketing Events Update

Hello Everyone,   First of all I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the new year.

Midweek Madness Ends

Hello Everyone,   After much consideration, the Marketing Team have decided that the weekly Midweek Madness events will not continue into October, thus Manchester Midweek Madness on the 29th of September will mark the final installment of the event for the foreseeable future. When the event started in February 2020, we did not expect it would grow anywhere near as popular as it currently is. For those of you who were active on the Network prior to the pandemic, ATC coverage was th

Future Long Haul Events

Good Morning All!   We hope you're all enjoying the warm weather and return of long nights at the pub (assuming you're over the age of 18 of course)! Over a year ago, we made a post outlining our plans for a long haul event series and polled the community on which destinations they'd like to visit. As the first lockdown restrictions came into full force we rushed to plan the debut event called Miami Vice, unsure of whether there would be sufficient demand for such lengthy events. Needl

Changes to Midweek Madness

Hello Everyone!   Some of you may remember a similar post a year ago when we first floated the idea of a weekly event, how time flies! The event has since become synonymous with VATSIM UK, and we see huge crowds of pilots returning each week which speaks volumes for the quality of service our controllers provide. We're currently in a situation where due to the insane volume of traffic, we need a minimum of 7 C1 controllers to comfortably split London into manageable sectors and this is

Midweek Madness - Feedback Wanted!

Hi Everyone,   As most of you are aware, we've been a trialling a weekly staff up event at Gatwick for the last couple of weeks. So far it's been a great success, in fact it has already exceeded our expecations on just the amount of traffic we're able to attract on a Wednesday evening. We've had some valid feedback so far, including: Making the event banner clearer - i.e including 'Gatwick' in the title Moving the event around, so it's not just held at Gatwick every week

Hello everyone. Having embarked upon the final year of my secondary education (year 13), I have found myself with limited time on my hands to commit myself fully to the marketing manager role that I occupy. Therefore, Loui and I have made the decision that it would be best, for all parties, that I step down from my role within marketing. It's been a special opportunity to work with @Loui Ringer and @Ben Wright, all the DSG and everyone who's been involved with graphics and live streaming -

Livestreaming Update

All, As you're probably aware, we run a live streaming series on our Youtube called "Behind the Scope". The series was set up over a year ago with the idea of attracting a live audience to see behind the scenes. The series really allows us to show members outside of the division what it's like to control, and how it looks from a controllers perspective. A few months ago, we brought this back with the plan of running Behind the Scope on the first Friday of every month, however, due to stream

Livestreaming Update: Behind the Scope

Hello All! I'm happy to announce that 'Behind the Scope' will be making a return to the VATSIM UK YouTube channel. However, we obviously cannot proceed without your involvement! We are looking for people to live stream their controlling sessions directly onto the YouTube channel, for everyone to see. They will need to read the live chat and, if able, verbally answer ATC related questions that the viewers may have. (Responding verbally to the live chat is not 100% mandatory, dependant on

Graphics

Good afternoon, In the marketing update, I said that people interested in making some banners could help out. I had 16 people express interest, so I made a "Graphics Team". Since March, the Graphics team have been sharing knowledge and expertise in areas of Photoshop and Marketing. We are lucky to have people who are studying this in education or work in marketing. They have been making event banners, graphics for announcements, badges for forum awards, posters for pilots and advertisements

Informal Staff-Ups Introduction

Alright buds,   I know I'm a bit late with this post, but for those of you who haven't already noticed, we have now introduced something called Informal Staff-ups. The idea of the staff-ups are to encourage groups of people to staff up their favourite airports, and we will then advertise them accordingly. This should increase the amount of traffic you'll receive, and make your time on the network more enjoyable. The full details are explained on the forum post here, but we just want to
