As one of the UK’s leading event staffing agencies, we have provided promotional, corporate hospitality and retail staff to work on campaigns in Manchester since 2004. As the UK’s second biggest city, Manchester is a very important location for sharing brand messages with consumers, and our clients appreciate our ability to provide high quality Manchester promotional staff.

Active experiential scene

We provide promotional staff to work in the Manchester Arndale, Trafford Centre and Manchester Fort, as well as outside Piccadilly and Victoria stations and within the creative areas of Spinningfields and the Northern Quarter. All these locations offer excellent footfall, a positive atmosphere and perfect spaces to reach out to consumers. Our clients regularly consider these venues an essential part of their experiential marketing planning.

Popular event venues

We regularly supply event staff to work at the Manchester Conference Centre and the Manchester Arena. These venues attract businesses and sponsors from across the UK and beyond, and host significant events for leading brands. Our event staff in Manchester have delivered sponsorship activation, VIP hospitality, conference registration and general facilitation of events for many different clients over the years.

Local knowledge

Hundreds of our promotional staff live in Manchester or the surrounding area, and many were born and bred there. We will always fill roles from within the local area first as this not only gives our clients the best value for money, it also means our promo staff in Manchester connect with consumers better. Their local knowledge and shared sense of community makes consumers feel more relaxed and open to conversation.
