New magazine publishers

Published 8th Apr 2014 by Events

Excel Publishing have been selected to produce our Close Up for Business magazine.

We’ve put a lot of time and effort into improving our magazine over the past few years and as part of the drive to continue to improve and add value to membership I would like to make even more improvements in the future. With this in mind, I am pleased to be able to advise you that, after reviewing our options, Excel Publishing have been asked to produce the publication. Excel are leading UK publishers who have a broad portfolio of Chambers of Commerce and trade associations nationally. The Chamber and Excel are delighted to have this opportunity to work together to make Close Up For Business the premier business magazine in our region.

The first issue of Close Up to be published by Excel, will be produced in July and over the coming weeks the staff at Excel will be in touch to introduce themselves and to discuss potential marketing and advertising opportunities for your company. The transfer of advertising series bookings will be seamless and carefully managed by our account manager at Excel Publishing, John Cooper. And, as always, editorial is welcomed from members in the form of good news stories, member updates and case studies which we are also happy to include within our e-newsletters, website and social media, free of charge. I urge you to utilise our communication platforms which will enable increased business opportunities for you in these tough times. 

Should you have any queries about this matter, please feel free to contact me, if you are interested in the advertising and sponsorship opportunities available in the magazine and on our website, please contact John Cooper on 0161 6614 192 and email
