Pioneers News: Selling in Swansea, relocation apps and Pioneers in the press

In this week's Pioneer's News we feature an opportunity to sell your wares in Swansea, an app to help you move country and a happy tweet from a Pioneer who was featured in the press this week.

Sell to Virgin Media in Swansea!

On August 29, Pioneers are invited to spend a day in Virgin Media's Swansea Contact Centre, selling your products and introducing yourself and your business to some of the 750 staff who work there.

Up to 7 businesses can be hosted on the day. Sweet treats and accessories are popular with the Swansea teams but if you have a special offering that you think would interest them they'd be happy to hear from you too.

How to apply

Send and email to: Anna.O' by August 1 with the following information:

  • Business name & type

  • Name & contact details

  • Website address

  • Goods price indication

Important things to note

  • Tables will be provided at Swansea for you to display your products.

  • You should bring your marketing collateral eg. Leaflets, business cards etc.

  • Travel or other costs associated with participation will not be reimbursed.

  • You will need to make your own travel arrangements to Swansea.
