Liverpool ONE has won a British Council of Shopping Centres Opal Award in the media category for a campaign to support the Bodies Revealed exhibition, which was hosted by Liverpool ONE from 1 September 2012 to 2 January 2013. A special bio-chalk was used on paving to form a trail around Liverpool ONE that would drive visitors to the exhibition. Everyone who took a photograph of the unique street advertising to the box office received a discount on the entry price. The campaign ran for three weeks during November and December last year and brought an additional 2,658 visitors to Bodies Revealed, achieving a return-on-investment for the organiser of 20:1 in ticket sales.
