PizzaExpress is one word [GU1]

would suggest “pop-icon” or “incredible” instead of “famous” – talking more to her talent and credibility [GU2]

PEX is almost 60 years, music venues are almost 50 years. [GU3]

Do we want to position as it’s a completely new to JLT? Or that it’s re-opening as PE Live? [SD4]

This is a reopening not a launch – so the language here needs to be amended to talk about the fresh look, latest talent and delicious flavours… otherwise it will confuse customers  [GU5]

Would add some iconic food cues in here “so guests can enjoy the performers from any table while enjoying a Romana Padana” (or Dubai’s top selling pizza). “A 360-degree bar serving up ice cold XXX and overlooking the garden.” [GU6]

suggest “exclusive show” or “gig” [GU7]

Again, would say “show” – performance to me sounds like she’s only going to do one song. [GU8]

what do we mean here? [GU9]

we were informed in the meeting there would be surprise giveaways / competitions / games for prizes – we can remove if needed, please let me know  [MW10]

Ok, cool [GU11]
