Are we getting the most out of Media City?

Media CityBased in Salford not Manchester the BBC's second largest production centre, BBC North aims to build stronger relationships with audiences across the UK. And so it should as we all got sick of London centric programmes and we looked forward to the move North. The centre is at Salford Quays (nice) and will house 2,300 staff and a number of BBC departments – including BBC Sport, BBC Children's and Radio 5 Live.


Liverpool Chamber of Commerce are keen to ensure that Liverpool-based creative businesses and individuals are able to engage with the BBC and not just the Manchester/Salford agencies getting the cream of the crop so they have created this great opportunity to get in and hear from one of the head honchos at the BBC, hopefully leading to some major commissions, procurement and collaborative opportunities. RESULT! 

The seminar itself, aims to make the creative sector in Liverpool aware of and prepared for opportunities from large commissioning bodies based at the new Salford site, but it works both ways - it is a great opprtunity for Liverpol based organisations to make them aware of the fantastic work that is being created here in Liverpool.

Venue: FACT 

Confirmed speakers:

  • Director of BBC North, Peter Salmon
