A Marketing Derby VIP Preview event was held this morning at Bondholder Derby College's Engine Shed restaurant. Hosted by Bondholder HUUB Design, where owner Dean Jackson and special guest Bailey Matthews announced the second Jenson Button Trust Triathlon to be held on 17th July 2016.

Attended by over 100 guests, the event was full of stories and laughs, particularly from Bailey Matthews who won the Helen Rollason Award at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards 2015.

HUUB Design founder and owner, Dean Jackson, talked about the interest and success of last year's triathlon and plans for this year which include a new route through the city's Cathedral Quarter.

We wanted to bring the #BMBTriathlon to the best city in the world!

Bailey himself then launched the Be More Bailey Triathlon designed for children who either have a disability or who just need a little bit of extra confidence. The event will have no timing, placing and is one where everyone gets a medal. 

Stealing the show with his fantastic stories and videos, Bailey shared his video message from Simon Cowell who said: "Bailey, you never call me anymore".
