The Drum Recommends is a free service designed by The Drum to help marketers find relevant, trusted agencies. Recommendations are based on reviews by the people best placed to judge their expertise – their clients.

Every year, The Drum Recommends receives thousands of ratings from marketing clients. Marketers complete a survey that scores their agency’s performance, the quality and range of their services and price. In order to become recommended for a service, agencies must receive a minimum of three client ratings.

The International, Fringe, Film, Jazz, Magic and Television festivals put Scotland’s capital on the map each year, and with the season finishing at the end of the month, we took a look at which recommended agenices with Scottish bases came with the most client endorsements.

The table below shows each agency, alongside their staff headcount and the locations of their offices.

Agency Staff headcount Location(s)
Adeo Group 23 Dubai, Glasgow, London, Stockton-on-Tees
Altar Group 38 Dundee
APS Group 900 Edinburgh, Manchester

Genoa Black 16 Edinburgh
