Housing


Ocean’s housing portfolio is the market leader in housing across events, digital and print. The business includes flagship publication Inside Housing, which has more than 22,000 subscribers, and Housing – Europe’s largest housing event – which has over 300 exhibitors, 1,000 conference delegates and 8,000 visitors. The housing business is Ocean’s largest portfolio. 


The portfolio is enjoying an exciting period of growth, fuelled by Inside Housing’s recent wins at the British Journalism Awards and the British Society of Magazine Editors Awards, and a continued focus on new product development and expansion into adjacent markets.


After 18 months in development, Housing Expert launched in 2018. As a digital data and information service, this is an exciting and timely new product from Ocean that the market is embracing rapidly.

Lifestyle


Our lifestyle portfolio currently serves four markets with 10 exhibitions per year. The department is unique in that it is purely made up of exhibitions, drawing on the proven expertise we have here at Ocean to create industry-leading events that add significant value to their markets each and every time they run.

The Baby & Toddler Show series is much loved by both the nursery industry and new and expectant parents alike. We have consistently delivered excellent experiences at all our shows in this market since they began in 2012, and in April 2018 we extended into Scotland with a hugely successful launch.

The Flooring Show and The Stationery Show are recent acquisitions for Ocean. Both serve the UK’s independent retailers with design-led products that are best presented and sold face-to-face.

SquareMeal Venues & Events Live is Ocean’s most recent acquisition. Now in its 12th year, and running annually in London, this is the UK's leading exhibition and networking show for event organisers, attracting more than 7,000 event professionals responsible for booking Christmas parties and many other corporate events. We’re launching an equivalent exhibition in Manchester, taking place in April 2019.
