Pudsey The Dog takes a starring role at FunFest!

Meet Pudsey & Ashleigh at the upcoming blogger summit

Britain’s Got Talent winner and movie star Pudsey, plus his celebrity trainer Ashleigh Butler, will be appearing at the upcoming FunFest Blogger Summit.

Pudsey and Ashleigh will do a live 20 minute show, and take questions from the audience during the FunFest conference session. In addition, during the afternoon expo, Ashleigh and Pudsey will meet delegates for interviews and photo opportunities.

The celebrity duo are appearing at FunFest courtesy of greetings cards and gifts giant Carte Blanche, which signed a major global licensing deal with them last year. The agreement will see Carte Blanche create a new range of plush, gifts and greeting cards as well as representing Pudsey the Dog globally across an entire consumer product and digital portfolio.

There will be a dedicated Pudsey & Ashleigh area at FunFest, where Carte Blanche is keen to talk to bloggers about partnerships for social media campaigns throughout the year.

Ruth Leonard, Carte Blanche’s Director of Marketing & New Business Development, enthused: “We’re very excited about our new agreement to represent Pudsey, plus the launch of our Pudsey plush, gifts and greetings cards.

“We’re looking forward to meeting the bloggers at FunFest to talk about our long term plans and objectives for the brand.”

“This is a fantastic addition to the FunFest Blogger Summit,” added Kirsty Barr, MD of miPR, the company behind FunFest.

“Not only will we all get to see and meet Pudsey and Ashleigh, but there will be some very exciting opportunities for bloggers to work with Carte Blanche on the brand this year and beyond.”

It takes place on Saturday September 12th at Whittlebury Hall, Northampton and will boast conference sessions and the opportunity for bloggers to discuss brand ambassador opportunities with a number of exhibiting companies. Children’s entertainment will also be provided.
