Digital Experience

We build deeper customer relationships around personalised and engaging experiences through our in-house scalable, omnichannel intelligent platform (Fabric).

Taking a Data Insight & Customer Centred Product Design-led approach, we listen to our customers and work closely with our commercial partners, brands, and our centres of expertise to create premium experiences across our portfolio of content producers

Data Management

Data and Analytics sit at the heart of our strategy. Our marketing database provides a single customer view of millions of consumers, including lifestyle and demographic variables. We use it to deliver cutting edge data insight and analysis, as well as a data planning tool to deliver multi-channel CRM.

eCommerce

Our deep understanding of our customers and their life stages means we can work with selected partners to offer tailored products ideally suited to their passions. From travel and finance through Radio Times to hand-picked products for discerning gardeners, we’re deepening the relationship and driving fast-growing revenues.

Events

Our live events portfolio, Immediate Live, is the UK’s leading organiser of unmissable consumer events. We create premium, passion-led events and experiences that connect and inspire audiences as they come together to share, learn and participate in their interests.

Our specialist content creators, producers and commercial teams are as passionate about their subjects as our audiences – working together to create live experiences and online content in art and design, textiles and craft, cycling, dance, food, gardening and travel for communities throughout the UK and across the world.
