SPACE Interactive Media Labs




For SMEs

We provide highly specialised services that SMEs would otherwise not have access to in traditional office settings. Therefore, to provide flexibility and affordability, SPACE offers a ‘Pay As You Go’ service for use of the interactive media labs and user experience (UX) testing.


For UX professionals

Our labs are perfect for UX professionals and conversion rate optimisation (CRO) specialists as they can use our innovative facilities to deliver consultancy-led services to their clients in a relaxed and professional environment.


For agencies

Collaborating with digital and media agencies, we deliver user experience and asset usability testing facilities and services including: competitor user experience analysis (UX, CX), user journey analysis, full end to end customer experience and process mapping, and conversion rate optimisation.

The Landing

The SPACE interactive media labs enable SMEs to drive engagement and interaction by implementing early stage UX (User Experience), gaming and digital asset usability testing to deliver digital media across social, mobile, web and broadcast channels.

Situated on the 6th floor at The Landing, SPACE is a purpose-built environment for content and platform testing and consists of four discrete test beds: three social space environments (modelled after living rooms) and one dedicated 10-seater games console laboratory.

SPACE works with clients operating in retail, healthcare services, finance, broadcast, gaming, app development, mobile, web and social business solutions.

SPACE labs are available from £500 per day.

The facilities at the SPACE Labs allow our team to pioneer candidate and client user experience in a way which hasn't previously been covered in our sector.

We chose The Landing for MD Pods, our flagship hot desking scheme, because it offers a flexible workspace for freelancers and small businesses looking to take the next step towards full time office space.

I couldn't believe it when I found out how affordable it was to have access to shared space in such a vibrant building, let alone at MediaCityUK, which was probably about the most exciting place I could have wished to spend my working days.
