A brief reflection
We say this every year, but 2023 has been our busiest year yet! With nine shows attended globally, the launch of a new challenge, Velocity, at IAAPA Europe, and the opening of new centres across the world.
The end of 2022 saw us expand into Saudi Arabia as we partnered with SEVEN, and just last week we welcomed some of the team from SEVEN to the UK to experience Clip ‘n Climb for themselves. First stop was a visit to the latest site still under construction in Crawley, then to Clip ‘n Climb Reading, onto Clip ‘n Climb Oldham, followed by a tour of the factory to see where the magic happens!
We also had a partnership of a different nature, as this year saw the start of a three-year collaboration with Beano to enhance the value proposition exclusively for our franchisees. We’ve had great fun bringing Beano to life in the centres, and in the process, we’ve raised further awareness of Clip ‘n Climb.
And we’re ending the year on a real high, with the signing of three new franchises in the UK: Crawley, Wandsworth and Halifax. All on track to open in February.
What next for Clip ‘n Climb?
Well, we’re set to top 2024 for a start!
International comes to the UK
One of the biggest changes to come next year, is that Clip ‘n Climb International will be managed by Clip ‘n Climb UK. But don’t worry, we’re working hard to ensure that this doesn’t affect the high level of customer care you’ve come to expect.
First shipment to Saudi Arabia
Challenges for the first site, Exit 10, which the team from SEVEN got to see when they visited, will be leaving the UK with a further 11 sites planned.
2024 will see us unveil four new challenges, we can’t really say any more than that as we don’t want to spoil the surprise. But, if you want to ensure you’re kept up-to-date, please make sure you sign up to receive our bi-monthly newsletter.
On the back of a successful year of exhibitions, we’ll be attending the following shows:
We hope to see you there!
We’ll be opening three new franchises in February, one of which will be the largest in the UK, taking our total to seven. And with more in the pipeline, we’ll be expanding our franchise operation in the UK even further.
With all of this going on, we’re excited to welcome to the marketing team Hannah Tipler as Marketing Manager, so you can be sure you’ll be kept updated with all things Clip ‘n Climb.
Thank you all for your interest, custom and enthusiasm for Clip ‘n Climb this year, we hope you’ve had a fantastic 2023 and look forward to seeing you in 2024!
