From today, August 1, 2018, CityX begins as a new entity after separating from Stonebow Media Ltd (the publishers of The Lincolnite and Lincolnshire Reporter).
CityX Ltd now encompasses cityx.co.uk the daily business news platform, cityxmag.co.uk the weekly digital business content magazine, lincolnx.co.uk the new business membership network and a portfolio of business events that can be see on cityxevents.co.uk.
Dean Graham, Founding Publisher of CityX had previously been Co-Publisher/Owner of Stonebow Media for the past 5 years, helping to take the business from a 2 person start-up to an award-winning company – highly respected for its achievements locally.
Stonebow Media will continue with its local news publications under the direction of Founding Editor Daniel Ionescu as it enters its tenth year of business and boasts half a million monthly readers.
Dean said: “The journey with Stonebow Media has been incredibly enjoyable, disrupting a long standing industry that was in dire need of change made for a really exciting proposition; I now see the same opportunity with CityX with the added advantage of being able to grow across a much larger geographic region.
“Indeed our plan is to open a CityX Nottingham office by the end of 2018, with Sheffield and Leeds identified as the next targets.
“There’s a real demand for regional business news, engaging content and events for a more modern generation of professionals and business leaders; and we want to provide it.
“We’re certainly not finished in Lincoln though, our website grows in readership every month, our weekly digital magazine is constantly gaining in popularity and we’re launching new events such as the Directors Conference and the all new Lincolnshire Business Expo which will be combining our Visit Expo and Tech Expo into one massive B2B event which is an absolute must-attend event for 2019.”
CityX will continue to lead the industry with more video content and podcast plans, profiling businesses in the area.
