“Placemaking is at the heart of what we do, as the Business Improvement District in Marylebone. We want workers, residents and visitors to maximise their experience of the area and have a lasting positive impression which they will share. We Are Placemaking have played a crucial role in supporting our biggest annual event that animates and adds vibrancy to Portman Square and brings the whole community together. The quality of delivering our events is as important as the events themselves and the excellent feedback we receive is a testament to the great job that We Are Placemaking do, year on year.”
