Always fresh, always relevant, always irreverent.
The Platinum Publishing Group was formed five years ago to serve the business community of the South East. The region is the economic powerhouse of the UK but was very poorly served by any publication that connected businesses and kept them abreast of all the news, views and opinion.
Our flagship title is Platinum Business Magazine that covers the whole of Sussex and is the largest circulation regional business magazine in the UK. With the high quality production and even higher journalistic standards, of which we are very proud, we were then contacted by the Surrey Chambers of Commerce to produce their magazine. Surrey Chambers Business is now the largest circulation business title in Surrey. We then began production of the magazine for the Alliance of Chambers in East Sussex, and ACES Magazine was born and this was followed by Connect Magazine covering the West of Sussex.
The Platinum Publications now cover 92% of every business in the region and has become a vital tool for business leaders to know what is going on within their patch.
Our digital reach is just as important. Across our digital platforms we have built a readership of over 465,000. Added to our print readership of 235,000 each issue across the four magazines, we are delighted that we now reach more than 700,000 readers.
The company was started by Maarten Hoffmann and Ian Trevett. Maarten has a long illustrious background with the BBC, followed by many years of business working with some of the largest blue-chip companies in the UK and Ian has a long and successful background in print media across a wide spectrum of sectors. Together, we brought a fresh perspective to the world of publishing and changed the manner in which such magazines are brought to market, with the use of Corporate Partners offering unique thought leadership, current affairs and much more.
Platinum is always informative; always relevant; always irreverent.
