Invitation to Tender: Place Marketing External Perceptions Study and Stakeholder Engagement Plan

The LEP is responsible for driving economic growth in Cheshire and Warrington, with the aim of growing the size of our economy to £50bn per annum by 2040. To achieve this, we need to support the position of our sub-region as a leading place in which to live, work, invest, study and visit.

We are exploring an approach to Place Marketing that would help to attract and retain more businesses and people, in turn, helping to realise the ambitions stated above. The LEP is now seeking to appoint an experienced Place Marketing agency to undertake external perceptions research so that we can move forward in shaping an authentic story to build a sense of identity and increase our sub-regions reputation nationally and internationally.
