Animals help parents and children to make the most of summer - and help retailers and venues deliver novel customer experiences
 
Animals help parents and children to make the most of summer - and help retailers and venues deliver novel customer experiences
 

Summer is fast approaching and parents are thinking about how to keep children entertained and occupied over the summer holidays.  At ZooLab, the UK's leading animal handling and entertainments company, we are working with holiday and out of school clubs the length and breadth of the UK to provide some great animal-handling experiences.  It's a busy time for our network of rangers and presenters who are working with everyone from summer camps to summer schools, delivering workshops that combine entertainment and fun with the chance to learn new things.

It's not just parents and holiday clubs, however, that are thinking about these things of course.  Businesses are focusing on what they need to do to ensure that their customers are encouraged to keep visiting them over the holiday period - and animals can be a real draw.

It is this pulling power that explains why ZooLab is called on by shopping centre management companies to provide animal-handling sessions over holiday periods (and other times too of course!).  Retailers recognise that it is all about creating novel and engaging customer experiences.  And this applies to 'retailers' of all shapes and sizes – including stately homes and visitor attractions. 

You might be surprised to learn for example that, as well as working with shopping centres such as St James' Shopping Centre on Edinburgh's Princes Street, we also work at venues that range from hotels such as Crieff Hydro in Perthshire and Crowne Plaza in Edinburgh, and visitor attractions such as Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust, The Matthew in Bristol, Sudeley Castle in Gloucestershire and Barony Castle in Dumfriesshire.  Animal-handling in such venues provides great entertainment for young (and older!) visitors, and delivers a really memorable customer experience for all the family

This year too, as in previous summers, ZooLab is delivering summer reading activities in libraries everywhere.  Our summer story-telling sessions, involving animals and animal-handling, are aimed at encouraging a love of the spoken and the written word.  It's all about firing the imagination, getting children involved in stories and acting out scenes and dialogue. 

At ZooLab, we can be party animals too. ZooLab also appears at graduation balls, and summer parties and events for private individuals – from children's birthday parties, to weddings -  and at corporate events that include staff away days and client away days.  To find out more take a look at our website at www.zoolabuk.com or call us on 0845 330 6322  - or follow us on Twitter and Facebook
