We create events and experiences that win hearts, minds – and awards. That excite people. Entertain millions. And transform industries.
Make it fun. Make it award-winning. Make it live.
Events and experiences that win hearts, minds – and awards. We create them, develop them, deliver them. Down to the last detail.
From the Ideal Home Show to Clerkenwell Design Week. From the Coronation Festival to Destination Star Trek. Working with Channel 4, ITV, BSkyB – even the Queen.
What we do transforms brands, and turns whole industries on their heads. It entertains millions – and makes millions for our partners, sponsors and exhibitors.
You’ll find us in the UK, South Africa, and China: working hard, laughing a lot, creating bold, meaningful experiences, and loving what we do more each day.
AT A GLANCE
Lifestyle, design & home.
And hoping for many more
To our events each year.
Great ideas + creativity + understanding
How we work
We create and deliver live events, magazines, and websites – both for brands we own, and on behalf of brands, too. Taking on every project in-house, from concept to delivery. Our teams are the most talented professionals in the industry, working together and drawing on each other’s strengths to deliver the very best. And because we’re a truly independent company, we’re able to give our teams the creative freedom that’s led to Media 10 being one of the most decorated companies in the industry.
We’re the force behind some of the UK's biggest brands like Good Homes, ICON, UKCW and 100% Optical – with Media 10 teams creating vibrant, original content for them all.
If you’ve heard of them, we’ve probably worked with them. ITV, CBS, Channel 4, BSkyB, BBC, and Virgin Media – we’re proud to call them all partners.
We’ve transformed fading events and brands into award-winning shows and household names. Like the Ideal Home Show, which we took from the edge of extinction to 450,000 visitors a year.
Make it together.
Running dozens of trade and consumer events, websites, and publications and entertaining millions of people a year is no mean feat. The people who make it happen aren’t just a lovely bunch – they’re talented, dedicated specialists with focused understanding of their industries. Ambitious, but with two feet firmly on the ground. And proper team players who bring out the best in each other.
