Marketing Sheffield

The city's official destination marketing organisation, responsible for Sheffield's place brand management and promotion.


We are part of Sheffield City Council in the 'City Futures' department, and are therefore funded by public sector budgets. Our aim is to achieve growth for the city - in the widest sense of the word.

Whilst economic growth is the most tangible measure of this, place branding is also about the intangibles, and so we work with community organisations, cultural providers, educational institutions and many other private and public stakeholders on collaborative projects that seek to promote the city as an inclusive, progressive and unique place for people to live and work in, as well as visit.

Marketing Sheffield has responsibility for:

  • Leadership of the city's place brand
  • Promoting Sheffield externally (i.e. outside the city) in the areas of Trade (Business), Talent (attraction, retention and development), and Tourism (business and leisure visitors).

Since the pandemic and the changing nature of people's relationships to cities, Marketing Sheffield has also led on:

  • Place-based recovery (through marketing as well as animation and stimulation, such as via the Make Yourself At Home and Summer in The Outdoor City campaigns).
  • Destination management - working with stakeholders to better understand how we can help shape Sheffield's offer to relevant audiences in light of the fact many businesses have adapted what they do and how they do it.

If you'd like to get in touch with us to- provide any comments or feedback, list an event, tell us about a business/venue/attraction you think might be worth listing or have something newsworthy we might be interested in, then please click here.
