Keeping calm, carrying on and looking ahead.

31 December 2022

Assemble Media Group would like to thank its readers, clients, partners and suppliers for their ongoing support throughout a challenging 2022 and wishes them a Happy New Year as it looks forward to exciting new projects ahead.

The last twelve months has seen a difficult to navigate, post-pandemic trading environment as well as macroeconomic and geopolitical turmoil.

Despite the challenges, Assemble has had significant success and celebrated its 5th anniversary, a major milestone for the business. The Group returned to live events with new content programmes achieving thousands of attendees. The team has launched new initiatives, ran one of our largest Building Award events ever and recruited fantastic new people who have improved the business. The team and brands have also been nominated for several honours across the AOP digital publisher awards, IBP Awards, PPA awards and PPA Independent Publisher awards.

Assemble’s Managing Director, Tom Broughton said: “A huge thank you to all of our readers, clients, partners and suppliers for their ongoing support during the period and beyond. Plus, a token of appreciation for our resilient, brilliant and wisecracking Assemble team, whose innovation and optimism keeps us pressing on. However, as the curtains close on 2022, Assemble has major plans for 2023.” 


Next year marks Building magazine’s 180th birthday and the team will celebrate with the recently launched Building The Future Commission. The initiative will pioneer a roadmap for a construction industry in need of shake-up. The campaign will feature a programme of content, roundtables and a special report and recommendations to be sent to the government at the end of the year. Meanwhile, Housing Today’s launches a new data and intelligence platform, Housing Today Boardroom, where professionals can connect with the industry’s most influential developers and gain valuable insight. Assemble will also increase its number of face-to-face events across the board as nothing quite beats the feeling of the networking buzz within a physical space. Keep your eyes peeled for all of this plus much more.

Broughton added: “The last 12 months has been anything but smooth but we’re excited for what lies ahead… A big, hearty Happy New Year from everyone at Assemble. See you in 2023!”
