UMU Media Group are proud to announce that they have successfully brokered a deal for The GREAT Britain Campaign to become the official partner for The Gravity Industries Flights at the Bournemouth Air Festival, The World Largest Free Air Festival, on behalf of Bournemouth Council.

The GREAT Britain campaign is the Government’s international marketing campaign and showcases the very best of what our whole nation has to offer in order to encourage the world to visit, study and do business with the UK. The campaign unifies the international growth promotion efforts of Department for International Trade, VisitBritain, British Council, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, 16 other government departments and organisations and hundreds of private sector companies.

Thomas Ross, Creative Director at UMU Media Group, said: “We’re delighted to be working with The GREAT Britain Campaign & Bournemouth Council at this exciting time. It’s been an impressive period both on land and in the air for the Bournemouth Air Festival. The Bournemouth Air Festival represents a great opportunity for businesses to take perceived ownership of this impressive, diverse and respected festival operating across Land, Sea & Air. It’s been a positive year for all of the new participating Aircraft and Companies and we’re looking forward to even more success in the coming years.

Trade Minister Graham Stuart said, “The UK is a world leader in innovation and technology, and I can think of no better example to demonstrate this than the jet suit developed by Gravity Industries. Bournemouth Air Festival and the jet suit are exactly what the GREAT campaign is there to promote – showcasing the best of Britain to the world, encouraging people to visit, study and do business here.

Chief Test Pilot Richard Browning said; “This is a great opportunity to demonstrate what we have created to a huge audience – we’re delighted to be part of the 11th Bournemouth Air Festival and can’t wait to show you all what Gravity can do!

Jon Weaver, Air Festival Director added, “Richard and Angelo will be flying in four shows on Friday and Saturday, two daytime and two dusk shows – we really are more than just an airshow and Gravity have added another unique display to the line-up. It’s fantastic to have Richard, Angelo and the team with us and to be supported by the GREAT campaign
