WHAT IS I LOVE MCR?

I Love MCR® is the city brand and trusted symbol of civic pride adopted by Manchester, championing community, culture, diversity and unity.

Out of chaos came creativity. Launched in reaction to the riots in 2011, I Love MCR® is an antidote to antisocial news and an answer to the local economy.

We create a unique picture of the city and we help advertise Manchester as a desirable destination to live, work, visit and do business. We react to events, create meaningful content and inspire communities all over Greater Manchester using various advertising and marketing strategies. We harness the energy of people, charities, businesses and media partnerships.

Above all, I Love MCR® aims to help boost economy and optimistically champions a bright future for the city.
