In May 2018 we will launch the pro-manchester quarterly magazine. This 64 page special edition will appear in May, August, November and February each year with an initial print run of 15,000. The magazine will include lots of content about our news and events programme plus features on members and member firms.
Let’s face it, we have lots of content. In 2018 we will host almost 150 events including FOUR conferences on Business, SMEs, Social Media and Economics.
The lunch programme includes Corporate Finance in February and Property in May. Sector groups feature in the monthly lunch programme with a series of round table events held through the year. Hot topics feature in the breakfast programme.
So why the magazine? It’s a great way to cover all the event details and ensure the event “dwell time” lives on in the hearts and minds of our members and policy makers in the region.
The magazine will be available FREE to members of pro-manchester, SME club, the sector group members and key influencers in Manchester and the North West.
We will shortly announce the EDITOR for the magazine. It’s a great coup for pro-manchester! Someone with great experience as a journalist and Business Editor in the region.
Advertising will be restricted to 20 full page equivalents per edition. The page rates are attractive and competitive. Two half pages will also be reserved per edition for local authorities. They will be FREE to local authority organisations working with pro-manchester. Our nominated charities will also feature. They will receive FREE space in the magazine in each edition.
I know you will be as excited as we are about the launch. This is a great opportunity to advance the development of pro-manchester. It’s also a great opportunity to advance the profile of your business in the process.
