GM Business Connect Magazine is a business to business bi-monthly magazine that is available both in a printed and electronic format. It covers many of the major business hubs across Greater Manchester, with an emphasis on B2B networking and bringing Manchester’s business community together. What’s more – it’s completely free.

Promoting your businesses

GM Business Connect is published bi-monthly as an eye-catching supplement sized magazine to over 40,000 business readers targeted throughout Greater Manchester.

The magazine is full of news, features and articles related to the region’s business community. It is supplement sized (330mm x 244mm) and has an impact that simply cannot be missed.

Regular business news and reviews

As well as news articles, there are regular in-depth features on a selection of successful Greater Manchester based businesses and organisations each edition.

There are also professional analysis offered by columnists from many different areas of business, all geared to offer valuable local insight into issues affecting many businesses throughout the region. In addition, a regular diary page is published featuring all important business and networking events, plus a places to meet page.

Distribution across the whole of Greater Manchester

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

Launched in 2014 as Trafford Business Connect Magazine, 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.

Every two months the magazine is sent to a database of over 1,000 senior decision makers across Greater Manchester, and is delivered by Royal Mail to each subscriber in a clear poly bag.

What’s more important is that each magazine goes to a separate business, dramatically increasing the readership figures and saturation. In addition, an extra 4,000 copies are distributed to over 250 business hubs, networking groups, conference and event facilities, again all situated throughout Greater Manchester.

The magazine is also published electronically through and is sent out as an e-shot to over 15,000 email subscribers.
