Advertise on Manchester billboards

They say you can’t put a price on brand awareness. Until now.

Outdoor media aka out-of-home media is very important to us.

Manchester billboards are one of the main reasons why the I Love MCR® logo has resonated with so many residents and visitors.

You can’t miss it and, more importantly, it sticks. That’s why we’ve made the easy decision to invest in outdoor media further.

Now in the digital age with access to screens across Manchester, it’s easy to be seen on our billboards to boost your brand awareness.

Location is everything

Thanks to our media partners, we’ve hand picked locations at the top of the digital out-of-home market.

Each billboard screen has its own individual personality, its own audience and unique delivery of not only a creative canvas but integrated technology to go with it.

So whether it’s a roadside digital billboard or a ‘in-street’ digital screen you want, we’ve got it.
