Our heritage is vitally important to our story. While MediaCity today is all about the future, its foundations have been laid on what was one of the world’s biggest industrial ports. Manchester Docks revolutionised the world’s textile trade innovation, vision and international trade. So we may have swapped dock workers for media makers, shipped goods for streamed content, but what drives us remains the same. MediaCity was and is a place of global export and exchange, with an international workforce, and the vision to make the impossible, possible.
