MC2


MC2 is a strategic marketing agency based in Manchester, UK. We are a team of circa 50 talented individuals made up of marketing strategists, data analysts, digital marketing consultants, media relations specialists, graphic designers, software engineers, video producers, VR/AR developers and even a drone pilot. We have a clear focus on placemaking (or city marketing) – building the positioning and investment case globally for cities/regions as well as high-growth, private equity backed businesses often in the technology sector. The common factor between these two focuses is that they have a need for global connectivity to accomplish their objectives. MC2 has a purpose. It drives everything that we do. We exist to make a positive difference. To make a positive difference to the community of talent that makes up MC2. To the extraordinary cities, high growth businesses and organisations that we’re privileged to work with. And to the communities where we live, work and play. MC2 is one of the most connected communities in the UK. Our clients range from the Cabinet Office of the UK government to Mondelez International to RentalCars.com. Our service lines range from media relations to digital marketing to brand strategy to design, web development to video production. If you think big, we'll think bigger. Welcome to MC2.
