Northern Hive, a British digital marketing and public relations start-up, will open a new Montréal office on April 1st, 2020. Located in the legendary Sun Life Building, the office will be home to the agency’s artificial intelligence and engineering marketing hub. The addition is in response to the need for specialized marketing services in this sector.

The new presence confirms the agency’s commitment to Canadian markets and the importance of Montréal as an AI and technology city. Northern Hive works with clients in a number of sectors, specializing in technology (and AI), engineering, e-commerce and consumer (travel and sport).

The agency has previously worked on campaigns for businesses in the computer-aided engineering, computational fluid dynamics, high-performance computing, AI and robotics industries, so is well placed to guide and advise businesses in these areas. The agency offers digital marketing and public relations, with a full service portfolio including content marketing, media relations, organic SEO, and brand communications.

Since its inception as an agency start-up, Northern Hive’s Canadian clientele has grown rapidly, initiating the need to expand in this market. Further locations across Canada are expected to be added to the agency’s office portfolio in the coming months, alongside planned growth in the UK.

“Montréal is a hugely exciting city for artificial intelligence, engineering and other emerging technologies. It’s home to a dynamic scientific community including the very top AI players. It is no surprise that the Canadian government chose Montréal to house the headquarters for SCALE AI, Canada’s AI supply chain supercluster” says Mark Hayward, CEO of Northern Hive.

“Northern Hive’s experience in the AI, technology and engineering sector enables us to help clients more effectively in this specialist area. Our range of traditional and digital marketing services combined with industry and marketing knowledge should offer a valuable solution to clients. We look forward to announcing further expansion news later in the year” he added.

A number of staff and freelance opportunities are available. Those interested in learning more about career opportunities or wanting to learn more about Northern Hive’s marketing services, should email montreal@northernhive.com.
