UKIP Media & Events Ltd.
UKi Media & Events organises more than 20 highly specialised exhibitions and conferences, produces over 30 leading international magazines, and organises the acclaimed International Engine of the Year Awards, with total emphasis on transportation and kindred industries. Regarded by many of its competitors in the publishing and exhibitions business around the world as one of the most successful companies to have emerged in the last 25 years, it now runs specialist events in Europe, China, India, Korea and North America. The company has won the much-coveted PPA International Business Magazine of the Year award and received prestigious listings in Europe’s 500 and The Sunday Times Profit Track 100.
You may have noticed a mild change to our name, from UKIP Media & Events to UKi Media & Events. Both the political party and our fantastic company sprang up at much the same time, and neither had any right to claim the other could not use the UKIP letter sequence in the manner that we both have done for many years. However, after the UK general election in 2015 – during which one member of the public demanded to enter our HQ in Dorking, entirely convinced that Nigel Farage’s offices were hidden in there – and given our global positioning with the all-important aspect of being an entirely non-political organisation, we decided it was time for a change.
Having enjoyed a truly magnificent 26 years since the company was launched in 1991 (we are now in year 27) and with many new conferences and exhibitions as well as magazines to launch in the coming years, we are acutely aware that much of what we will do in the future requires underlining the fact that we are totally non-political – so UKi Media & Events it is.
UKIP Media & Events was founded in 1991 and has a continuous track record of innovation and product development. The company is regarded by many of its competitors in the publishing and exhibitions business around the world as one of the most successful companies to have emerged in the last 25 years. It now runs shows in specialist sectors in Europe, China, India and North America.
Fundamentals within the company include delivering real value for advertisers and exhibitors alike, with huge investment being made into uniquely researching circulations and business communities using the company’s own in-house staff. Founder of the company, Tony Robinson, says, “We have consistently put people on the phones to research worldwide communities of specialist engineering and technical people. We don’t believe in buying-in data. We want to research it and verify it for ourselves. People often ask me the question, ‘Where do you get your data?’ The answer is simple: we build it ourselves.”
The company has launched more than 20 highly specialised exhibitions and some 25 leading international magazines, with total emphasis on transportation and kindred industries. In some cases advertisers and exhibitors spend 80 to 90% of their entire global marketing budget on UKIP magazines and exhibitions, entrusting their success entirely to the company’s ability to deliver top-quality enquiries and visitors.
UKIP Media & Events is a global company with 140 staff, many of whom have been with the firm for 10 to 15 years and more. The company has won the much-coveted PPA International Business Magazine of the Year award and received prestigious listings in Europe 500 and The Sunday Times Profit Track 100.
