About AKA

We’re AKA, the global marketing and advertising agency that gets people to go to all kinds of places. From musicals and museums to plays and paintings. From galas and galleries to castles and comedies. We’re an agency of passionate and imaginative people and we’ve been proudly independent for over twenty years.

 

For us, work isn’t just what happens in the office. We visit our client’s places in our free time too, because we love who they are and what they do.

What We Do

Our priority is always to get to know businesses inside out, identify the unique challenges they face, and help find solutions with our distinct point of view. We’re powered by unrivalled experience and knowledge with over 20 years of data and insight to guide our thinking.  We get how the ups and downs of everyday life, from the economy to the political landscape, can impact a business. We understand the entertainment and leisure markets and its consumers; how they spend they hard-earned time and money. What turns them on, what turns them off and what they need to get them going. Just as importantly, we get what matters to our clients and what they need from an agency who’ll go that extra mile.
