TAG in partnership with Screen Manchester
In January 2019, TAG announced its partnership with Screen Manchester, as the specialist in managing travel and logistics for productions in the region.
Screen Manchester is the film office for Manchester City Council and delivers a comprehensive support service for all types of production seeking permission to film on location, having worked on a wide range of high-end TV, feature film and commercial productions.
Screen Manchester also works in consultation with Manchester City Council, Greater Manchester Police (GMP), Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) and Cityco to facilitate all levels of film and TV applications across the city. Applications are made via Screen Manchester’s bespoke permit system by using a reference Code of Practice. Last year Screen Manchester facilitated over 500 unique production enquiries for the city, which resulted in over 300 production shoots.
This partnership is a unique opportunity for location facility companies specialising in the film & TV industry to promote their business with one of the UK’s leading film offices and TAG had to be a part of it.
Backed by thirty years’ experience and a global presence, TAG is a leading international travel management company. Our dedicated Film and Media division specialises in managing your travel and logistics. TAG offers an extensive array of services, including competitive air and hotel group rates, ground transport and ancillary travel, Access special airline media baggage rates, 24-hour emergency service, among others.
Trevor Johnson, Managing Director – Touring and Film and Media UK, TAG said: “We are thrilled and honoured to work with Screen Manchester as their Travel Management Company partner. Since our initial meeting with Bobby Cochrane in the Autumn of 2018, it became clear that they wanted to work with a specialised Film and Media travel agency who are local and have many synergies. Therefore, this was an opportunity that we simply could not refuse. Already we have seen a huge surge in enquiries in and around Manchester for filming projects, and we are working closely with numerous local hotels who understand and clearly value this type of niche business.”
TAG is now looking to further afield at Liverpool and Leeds and partner with their local filming organisations in order and establish ourselves as the go-to travel and logistics production company in the Northern region.
