Communications group Creston has announced that it is to relocate two of its marketing agencies to Bristol Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone.

EMO and The Real Adventure will be the first commercial tenants of what is ultimately hoped to be the south west England’s main creative industries hub.

Don Elgie, Group Chief Executive of Creston, said: “Investment in new offices sends out a strong message to the market about our commitment to the region, our ambitions and growth plans. The move affords both EMO and TRA the opportunity to share and develop creative ideas and continue to drive strategic growth for clients.

“Our sector is one that is constantly evolving and diversifying. Co-locating in this way fuels growth and inspires collaboration. Investing in The South West, Bristol and the Enterprise Zone means Creston will firmly establish itself at the forefront of the growing creative hub in the South West of England.”

Matt Hardy, joint managing director of TRA added: “We are excited about becoming part of Bristol’s creative sector and hope to enrich and embrace the diverse talent and expertise in the area. Bristol is renowned for its vast number of highly successful creative businesses and our move reinforces the message that regions like the South West, and cities like Bristol, can compete with the very best that London has to offer.”

EMO have worked with a string of prestigious clients including Tesco, Toyota and Jaguar whilst TRA have worked with Walkers, Tropicana and Evian.
