MCUK in Salford is a development owned by The Peel Group and the new home for the BBC, ITV, Coronation Street, SIS and the University of Salford.

Along with the 80 businesses that are already part of the community at MCUK, there are also 378 apartments and the development is becoming an international hub for the creative and digital sectors.

Kudos will organise the marketing and delivery of events in a unique mezzanine area in the ‘Open Centre’ area of the development. The space looks out over the Green and Stage that makes up the piazza at the heart of the area, with views across the canal, Lowry Mall and Old Trafford.

Kudos will also open a new café that will service the sites daily.

Jon Pryce, managing director of Kudos, said: "The key reason that Kudos were the favoured partner is that we were able to deliver all elements of the contract including the marketing and delivery of events with minimal on-site kitchen facilities."
