Faversham House Group is one of the UK's leading independent media companies. Established more than 50 years ago, we are a successful and growing company.

We publish B2B magazines, websites and directories, organise three national B2B exhibitions, a year-round portfolion of conferences and five awards events, in the UK and Ireland.

We are a successful, dynamic and innovative company, passionate about delivering excellence. We do this through the hard work and creativity of our people.

Our magazines are essential reading for decision makers in their sectors and a valued and integral part of the industries they serve. Whether it is delivering the hottest news, enhancing technical understanding or reviewing the latest products and services, our readers and advertisers know we add value to their businesses.

Our exhibitions provide a vital focal point for a diverse range of industries from Visual Communications to the Environment. We deliver buyers to sellers. We build our exhibitions into extensive industry events with workshops, demonstrations, awards and much more besides, ensuring value for visitors and exhibitors alike. Our customer care programmes are second to none, to help our exhibitors make the most of their investment.

Through our award-winning online services in Environment and our new building services website, we offer a breath-taking depth and breadth of information in an easy to use and efficient format. Trying to find a supplier, understand the impact of new legislation or have the latest news delivered straight to your desk - we provide that vital link.

Faversham House Group in print, in person and online - your media connection.

We are actively involved in the community through our fund-raising for local charities and our extensive work experience programme for school children and students.

We always match any staff initiatives to raise money for charity whether it is through our annual DIY and Housewares product sale, organised by the Home Improvement Division or the Christmas Party raffle.

We see work experience placements as a vital link between us and the community and an opportunity for young people to understand and value our business. We provide a carefully devised programme to many students each year. They take part in a variety of activities which reflect the nature of the industry we are in and help them to experience the wider world of work. It is always an enriching exercise for the young people and us.

Faversham House is committed to minimising the impact of its events on the environment. We accept responsibility for the environmental effects of our events, both locally and globally, and we are committed to reducing those effects through the entire life cycle of each event.

The key points of our strategy to achieve this are:

  • Measure the impact of each event on the environment, and set sustainability targets for continuous improvement
  • Ensure we comply with all relevant legislation – environmental and otherwise
  • Implement a training program for our staff to raise awareness of environmental issues, and ensure their support for our sustainability policy
  • Encourage our suppliers to adopt a similar policy, and make sustainability a factor in selecting suppliers
  • Ensure that all Faversham House events are planned in accordance with BS8901 2009

Founded in 1960, Faversham House started as a controlled circulation publishing house. Originally located above the Cheshire Cheese in Fleet Street, the first publication was Heating and Ventilation Review, which continues as a leading publication for the building services market.

Over its first 50 years, the company has evolved and grown through a succession of acquisitions and launches, blazing an early trail with digital media with the launch of edie.net in 1998. Following a management buy-out on retirement of the founders, the new board is building on a rich and successful heritage to create a dynamic and progressive media company.
