Square Mile Sport works with its partners to understand their objectives and develop campaigns which deliver a return. Our relay attracts a demographic which works on B2B and B2C levels where we can offer partners cut through to key financial markets and a hard to reach audience through other media channels.

Please get in touch to discuss your objectives and see how we turn these into creative campaigns.
