This guide to marketing will help inform our readers about new tips and techniques, as well as traditional knowledge that remains relevant.

One of the most well-represented industries in our annual review of Lancashire’s best-performing SMEs, the sector brings jobs, investment and pride to the county. We’ll talk to some of the major players, some of the lesser-known names and explore the supply chain to talk about potential areas for growth and any potential barriers that stand in the way,
