Driven by innovation and consumer behaviour, we help brands connect physically with audiences in an ever-changing location landscape. Focussed on providing the best experience for brands to discover and book locations, we have recently launched lo:live, a game changing platform and marketplace that allows brands and agencies to search, plan and book experiential space directly with location providers and landlords. Since its launch it has quickly become the largest and most varied source of brand spaces in the UK and has captured the imagination of the main buyers of space with all the top agencies having accounts on the platform.
