Central Geelong Marketing invites Central Geelong businesses to participate in the Central Geelong Kids Fun Program in 2018.

The Kids Fun Program offers a range of mostly free children’s activities and special offers during each school holidays. The program aims to attract families into Central Geelong specifically for the free activities on offer, who will then stay on and spend at Central Geelong businesses.

The Kids Fun Program is incredibly popular with more than 28,000 people participating last year. The economic benefit to Central Geelong businesses was over $2.6M.

We will run two more Kids Fun Programs this year during school holidays and will produce a Kids Fun Guide brochure for each program. (Note during summer a printed program is not produced).

The Kids Fun Guide is distributed to over 7,500 registered families, Visitor Information Centres, CoGG Customer Service Centres and CoGG Leisure Centres, and participating Central Geelong businesses. It is promoted to schools and is supported by a strong print advertising and social media campaign to over 25,000 followers.

The Kids Fun Program is a great way for you to promote your businesses products and services to families. Participation is FREE for Central Geelong businesses.

Note: If you host any fee based children’s activities please include this information as well and we’ll include full details about the activity on our website and basic information in the paid section of the Kids Fun Guide. Please note due to space restrictions in the printed Kids Fun Guide, free activities will take priority over paid activities.

1. Submitting a special
2. Hosting a free children’s activity
3. Hosting a fee based children’s activity
4. Running a competition
