In the US, marketing communications and technology really is big
business. It features some of the largest groups in the sector,
many of whom are keen to expand their operations into the UK and
London agencies, in particular, are a popular choice for US
buyers. The UK is seen as the gateway to the rest of Europe and can
also often offer expertise in emerging economies like Latin America
and the APAC region.
