Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

DEFAULT GROUP

About Us

As an independent Welsh publishing business, the team behind Business News Wales have distributed over 40,000 of the UK’s top B2B news stories since 2012, all within the technology, human resources and recruitment markets. We have a proven track record of growing market reach for over 150 different UK and International businesses.

Showcasing the very best of Welsh business

In creating Business News Wales we aim to provide a voice for all Welsh businesses. With no political views or editorial agenda, our goal is to create the number one source of business news in Wales creating a level playing field for every business no matter of size.

If your business has a story to tell we will give you a voice!

The world of online media has changed over the years, moving from direct response to a more content engagement model. The decline of print, the rise of the Internet and more recently the emergence of social media and mobile, has completely changed the way in which we consume our news. It’s official, content marketing has now replaced direct advertising.

With multiple communication channels, highly targeted industries and a variety of useful directories, our aim is showcase the very best of Welsh business to both the internal Welsh market but also to those businesses looking to invest in Wales.
