Specialist and targeted advertising

University of Huddersfield Fresher's' fair

Virtual Huddersfield teamed up with Pennine FM to produce an Ice Party Night Video featuring the Huddersfield on Ice Rink. The video was played continuously at Huddersfield on Ice at the Piazza Shopping Centre and Virtual Huddersfield had a
banner up at the rink to promote our activities.

Also in conjunction with Pennine FM and the HTCPL we produced a Christmas Cracker Completion video.
