Leeds Corn Exchange makes new addition to regional agency's growing clientele

Integrated agency ilk has grown its regional client roster with the addition of Leeds Corn Exchange after a competitive pitching process.

The agency will be managing the social feeds for the centre over the Christmas period with plans to deliver bigger, integrated campaigns in the new year.  

Leeds Corn Exchange is a stalwart in the city’s culture and is the original home for independent shops, cafes and boutiques.

As part of the pitch, ilk was asked to refresh the Exchange’s online presence, and help increase footfall from consumers and pique the interest of potential vendors.

ilk will use its PR and social/creative teams to help create content for and run the central social media feeds across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook from Christmas and into the new year.

Nev Ridley, ilk’s managing director, said: “It’s fantastic to be welcoming Leeds Corn Exchange on board to help the team there with their exciting plans for next year. The centre is an iconis destination in the city and we hope to reflect that with our approach.

“It’s also great to be supporting another local Leeds business following a successful pitch with MeetInLeeds and retaining our existing contract with ConferenceLeeds earlier this year.”

The agency will also be running a proactive press office for the Exchange from 2020. All content will work to ensure the destination is being recognised as a central hub for culture within the city and to support its exciting growth, which is set for the new year.

Adam Warner, centre manager at Leeds Corn Exchange, concluded: “It’s great to have ilk on board for Christmas and beyond.

“We were keen to give Leeds Corn Exchange a distinct look and feel with our online activity and ilk’s suggested approach matched our vision perfectly.

“We’re looking forward to working closely together in the new year as the Exchange goes through some exciting growth.”
