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 thirty 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.
Our brands cover a wide range of niche markets from fashion and architecture to construction and tax. They are integral parts of their communities and have loyal audiences.
Sometimes as well as writing about the news, we have news of our own to share! Here’s the latest on our awesome brands, events, and teams.
