ProlificTop50integratedagenciesfinalAs in previous years, the 2016 list will represent the UK’s benchmark ranking and definitive guide to the North’s leading integrated agencies, spanning a wide range of advertising, marketing and creative businesses.

With the help of Mustard Research, which has again partnered with us on the initiative, we have whittled over 130 agencies down to an exclusive list of 50.

And for a fourth year on the trot, Better Placed is sponsoring the initiative.
