Who We Are

In 1887, entrepreneur Sir Richard Winfrey bought a collection of newspaper and magazine titles in the midlands together under the name East Midlands Allied Press. Throughout a distinguished 30-year history the group grew as media brands joined from across the UK. In 1947, the company adopted the ‘emap’ name. In 2017, fast-growing media operator Metropolis Group acquired the business, combined it with its own B2B media brands, and continued the growth trajectory with further acquisitions and growth in digital solutions, events and paid content.

Today, emap is one of the UK’s leading and fastest growing niche media owners. We connect our loyal audiences with news, analysis and expert opinion through leading journalism, engaging events and burgeoning digital products.


We deliver high quality content which matches all the needs of our diverse communities across the wide range of brands we serve.
