About Corporate Partnership

Become a Partner with one of the world’s finest cities.

As Edinburgh’s promotional company, Marketing Edinburgh can help you to boost your business and benefit directly from, while contributing to, Edinburgh’s ever increasing profile and growing reputation as a leading business location.

Marketing Edinburgh actively seeks Corporate Partnerships with exemplar organisations across a range of business sectors to amplify city messaging and to create demonstrable benefits for all parties. Our Partnership programme is designed to create real opportunities for forward thinking companies and to encourage private sector investment in the city’s promotion.

We exist in order to promote Edinburgh globally as a world class destination in which to LiveWorkStudyInvest and Visit and to drive economic benefit to the city.

Working Together

Your emotional and financial investment gives you a seat at the top table enabling you to be involved in decisions that can influence the strategic direction of the city and will be pivotal in developing promotional campaigns, leveraging the city’s assets, that answer your objectives - it’s about doing more, shoulder to shoulder, more efficiently, to reach a wider audience.

Working closely with our partners, who include Kitchin Group, The University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh Hotels Association, we get to understand their business, their priorities and what a successful partnership entails. This means that together, we can create successful, joint campaigns that ensure a valuable return on investment.

“It is imperative that Edinburgh doesn’t rest on its laurels. Private companies benefit from being based in a city that has a strong international reputation and is attractive to a skilled workforce. So, their role is pivotal in continuing to make that the case. Partners will benefit from campaigns which will help attract and retain their staff.” - John Donnelly, Chief Executive.
