Distribution across the UK and beyond

Business Connect Magazine is the flagship publication of Business Connect Publishing Ltd.

Launched in 2014 as Trafford Business Connect, very soon it was apparent that aligning with one borough was never going to be practical with such a fast moving platform. October 2015 saw the growth of the magazine pushing firmly into all 10 boroughs of Greater Manchester, and along with it a name change to GM Business Connect Magazine. The distribution and reach had also extended to businesses and organisations across the North.

With a further rebrand in 2021 to Business Connect Magazine, the reach has now gone national and beyond, with a fast growing interest among a broader range of sectors and regions.
