When you host a pop-up event, you have one chance to sell tickets or your business can fail for good. And as if that isn’t enough pressure, imagine trying to promote a festival that no one has heard of. That was the challenge facing the Magical Lantern Festival. The company’s owners wanted to bring new exhibits and beautiful light installations to people of all backgrounds. And they wanted to start in London, where customers aren’t short of attractions. So how do you build excitement and draw crowds to an event that’s never taken place?
