Having worked in Locations for over 10 years now, I appreciate the value of local knowledge. Half of my job is finding who it is I ask my questions to. We are tasked with finding an unending variety of places armed with a plethora of random requests. Having the guys at Creative England to guide and deal with our requests, often with the precious little time we give them, is useful to the point it almost feels like cheating. Friendly and always available, they are for us an invaluable tool and for the North West, a promotional powerhouse.
