The Platinum Publishing Group launched our first title in 2014 and Platinum Business Magazine took the region by storm and is now the largest circulation business magazine in the country. Since then we have launched three further titles that are the official publications of the region’s Chambers of Commerce. All Platinum titles are renowned for being informative, relevant and highly entertaining with editorial written by some of the most prominent business leaders from some of the UK’s largest companies. 

Always fresh, always relevant, always irreverent.
