Live & virtual events

Bringing our brands to life

Our audiences have deep shared interests, and they love to get together to learn and explore. Our Media’s live and virtual events are the perfect opportunity for these special interest communities to gather, bringing experts, exhibitors and sponsors together with fellow enthusiasts.

We host events both independently and with our sister company Immediate Live, one of the UK’s biggest consumer event organisers – whose portfolio includes the BBC Good Food Show, the Cycle Show and the Festival of Quilts. Together, our events span the worlds of art and design, textiles and craft, cycling, dance, food, gardening and travel.

Alongside our bustling live events, we also deliver a busy programme of virtual events, webinars and online masterclasses, both free and ticketed. We have rapidly built expertise in this fast-growing space, which audiences love because events can be enjoyed by anyone, anywhere. We have established successful tactics for marketing, commercialising and delivering events which offer rich content and real value for audiences.

Through online events our people and our audiences are connecting more closely than ever, and we are extending our own brands – and our partners’ – globally.
