ESSEX Bus awards logo 2016 WINNER 

Consolidating our presence in Essex as a local business, we have been honoured with three decorations at the Essex Business Excellence Awards:

Essex Business of the Year

Excellence in Marketing - Large Company

Outstanding Business Person with CEO Lee Newton

Media 10 is the most decorated and largest privately owned events and publishing company in the UK with a range of 23 live events, 39 websites and 10 publications.

Founded 13 years ago with no events or publications in the portfolio, we now attract over 1 million visitors annually to our events and reach 5 million readers with our magazines.

We have grown from a marketing department of 1 to a team composed of 25 most respected marketers in the industry. Our work can be seen on TV adverts, on the London underground, on buses, in national newspapers, heard on radio stations, and we combined with all our shows, we have hundreds of thousands of followers across our social media.

However, it is rare that you will see the Media 10 brands promoted on these channels as the individual shows and magazines are the heroes, yet behind it all, our achievements stem from the team in Loughton Essex that has achieved this phenomenal success.

Lee Newton, CEO and founder of Media 10 (top left), started his working life at the age of 15 with his own market stall, and is now one of the most successful businessmen in his field. One of Lee’s biggest accomplishments is the turnaround of the Ideal Home Show, which has expanded to 5 shows a year across London, Glasgow and Manchester. The expansion has driven 300,000 additional visitors each year and boosted revenues for the business. His clear focus on attention to detail, creativity and producing interesting content, have led to the outstanding success that is Media 10.

The Essex Business Excellence Awards have been established for 20 years and are a local platform for celebrating the very best business successes in Essex; recognising the efforts of local companies who have one thing in common: the dedication to achieve excellence.

It is wonderful to be present in Essex and being recognised as a strong local business.  This fantastic recognition was only possible through the professionalism and dedication of our teams.
