About The Business Magazine

The Business Magazine is the leading voice of business in the south, with magazine publishing and event management as its principal activities. It is a brand owned by Elcot Media & Events Ltd.

The company was established in September 1993 to fill a gap in the Thames Valley market for a quality publication to accurately report the major business events in the region; profile leading businesspeople; and act as a communications platform for regional businesses.

The magazine now covers the Thames Valley and the Solent & South Coast regions.

The website, covering the South excluding London, has also become a trusted and popular resource for regional news and views, with business stories added daily.

In addition, we publish three regular weekly eNewsletters:

We organise and promote eight major annual events:

And we publish specialist listings, organising smaller ad-hoc events around these:

  • Thames Valley 250
  • Solent 250
  • Solent SME 100
  • Southern Tech 100
  • Southern Manufacturing 100

Further Roundtables and Panel Discussions are hosted and promoted throughout the year on a monthly basis and these are reported across the print and digital publications.

The Business Magazine also incorporates special initiatives – such as Women in Business and Southern Entrepreneurs – which stand alone as well as filtering into the full range of offerings.
