Marketing in a post-GDPR era

This presentation by Christine Andrews will look at what you need to know about the GDPR for marketing; how permission looks in the post-GDPR era, how your potential customers view consent, how to understand where this new direction of travel should lead your business to ensure you build positive and sustainable relationships with your customers, and how to create supportable data flows that will minimise penalties for non-compliance. It will touch upon everything you need to make sure your marketing strategy aligns with the standards of the incoming regulation.

This year the debate will focus on a presentation followed by a panel session led by our host and including leading marketing directors from UK organiser companies.

Sandown Park is in a picturesque parkland setting in the town of Esher, Surrey, with superb travel links. Located within the M25 it is only 25 minutes by train from London Waterloo or 15 miles from south west London.

How to get there

Travelling by road

From London, take the A3 and follow the brown venue signs to Sandown Park. Alternatively, from the M25, exit at Junction 10 and follow the A3 towards London then exit onto the A307 and follow the brown venue signs. If using a Sat Nav, please enter 'Portsmouth Road' rather than the Sandown Park postcode - this will bring you to our main car park which is just off the A307 (Esher High Street) and is directly in front of the main entrance.

Parking on a raceday

Parking is free in the centre of the racecourse, which you can reach from the More Lane entrance. Alternatively, for £6 you can park in the main car park off the Portsmouth Road. Coach parking is free - just follow the Sandown Park signposts on all approach routes and park in the area off the Portsmouth Road. There are allocated disabled parking spaces in the main Portsmouth Road car park, which is free of charge to all blue badge holders. The parking is very close to the main entrance and the grandstand.

Travelling by rail

Esher rail station is just a 10 minute flat walk from the main entrance and can be reached by crossing the centre of the course on racedays. We also provide a complimentary minibus on all racedays from the station to the Main Grandstand Foyer entrance (and ticket collection point) for our customers arriving by train. On a non-raceday, visitors should turn left out of the station onto Station Road and then right at the T- junction to join the A307 Portsmouth Road. The entrance to Sandown Park is on the right hand side. Alternatively there is a taxi rank at the station.
