Home to Europe’s largest purpose-built digital hub at MediaCity, Creative, media and technology is Salford’s leading sector with employment growth of 15,000 additional jobs over the past five years and great potential for future growth.
The sector is heavily concentrated at MediaCity and Salford Quays, one of Greater Manchester’s leading business and employment clusters, which has fast become a creative media and technology hub for like-minded individuals and companies to work from with an established eco-system where start-ups and global players sit side by side in a supportive, flexible infrastructure which allows them to grow. Industry leaders such as the BBC, ITV and Dock 10 have made Salford their home, alongside a range of diverse start-ups and entrepreneurs.
MediaCity and Salford Quays are well positioned to enable the growth of further digital and creative businesses and emerging sub sectors that will drive forward future creation of workspace and jobs within the city. It’s a place where pioneering businesses come to shape the future, with MediaCity, which is currently home to 250 media and technology businesses, set to double in size over the next decade.
