Liverpool One Marketing Programme

Company: Grosvenor

Brief: Place Marketing and Branding

Liverpool One is Grosvenor’s £1billion, 42 acre mixed-use development in Liverpool.

The objective was to achieve a retail-led regeneration of Liverpool city centre in time for the city to benefit from being named European Capital of Culture. It had little more than four years to build, let and get people coming back to Liverpool (in their millions). When Liverpool One opened to the public it marked the culmination of many years’ effort resulting in the most important development within Liverpool’s city centre for the more than 60 years.

Working as its full time marketing director, Ayo led the successful implementation of the marketing programme behind the launch of Liverpool One.
