The Specialist Magazine For Investors in the London, UK & International Property Markets

Developers and estate agents looking to market their properties to Ultra High-Net-Worth investors from the Middle Eastern and International markets now have an exciting new publication to help showcase their forthcoming launches.

Absolutely London & UK Property (Global Edition) comes from Zest Media’s stable of beautifully produced and content-rich publications, with the added bonus of unique and strategic distribution to ensure that the magazines are reaching this exclusive target audience, who are notoriously difficult to reach.

Zest Media launched Absolutely London Property Magazine at Dubai’s Cityscape Global show in September 2016 and and captured on video the excitement of the occasion. 

After the success of our Absolutely Property Abu Dhabi Edition, which was published in March 2017 the forthcoming Dubai 2017 edition is set to be one of our biggest and best yet as we have extended the advertising and editorial to cover the international property market due to demand from advertisers. With advice from both agents and developers on the best locations to invest in, plus market round ups from our renowned property writers, our titles are invaluable for overseas nationals and ex-pats actively interested in investing in the London, UK and international residential and new homes markets.

One of the most exciting distribution channels for the magazines are the  Cityscape Events, some of the largest and most influential property exhibitions around the globe, connecting international real estate companies, buyers and foreign investors. We are thrilled to have partnered with Cityscape and are planning the next next phase of launches. For more details on forthcoming titles and a full breakdown of media information and distribution, please see our dedicated media pack here.

When the Electoral Commission launched its Snapchat geo filter across the UK to encourage Britain’s youth to register to vote in  the General Election it received a mixed response. The filter, which carried a voter registration message to encourage engagement and conversation among young people was called a ‘gimmick’ by some, while others praised the Commission for reaching out to this elusive audience. At the time their research showed that young people were typically less likely to be registered than older voters, with only 69% of 18-34 year olds correctly registered in the UK compared to 96% of those aged 65 and over.

“By working with Snapchat we can get this important message across in a new way and help ensure fewer people lose their chance to cast their vote” a spokesman said. And why not? With the average user spending 30 minutes a day on Snapchat* it appears to have been key in attracting this demographic to not only engage but to actually vote.

After all 3 candidates in the recent French elections used it to take questions, Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn seems to have been the main benefactor of adopting Snapchat, and as reports are of a staggering 72% turn out of the youth vote this platform may have changed the way we approach politics, voting and social media.

Zest was lucky enough to attend Clerkenwell Design Week, a three day event consisting of informative talks, workshops, and exciting product launches. As the home to some of the most creative businesses and architects in London, Clerkenwell has in recent years reinvented itself as a hub of exciting and innovative design, with the award winning event attracting the international design community year after year.

This year, Clerkenwell Design Week transformed well-known local venues such as Fabric Nightclub and the subterranean House of Detention into platforms to showcase their exhibitions, truly grounding the event in the local area and making it innately Clerkenwell’s. Participating companies included high-end furniture brands such as Ted Wood and Icons of Denmark, and the event offered ‘Conversations of Clerkenwell’, which dealt with industry issues and discussed new products.

One particular company that caught our eye was Bulo, a brand created by a Belgian duo in 1963. Bull guarantees sustainable product and design and collaborates with outside designers to ensure a variety of different approaches to design, keeping them fresh and innovative. At Clerkenwell Design Week, they demonstrated their working life philosophy through their Dan collection, which thrives in the modern shift towards more informal, flexible work stations. Dan, a modular collecting inspired by traditional Japanese joinery, succeeds in creating multifunctional and enjoyable working environments for both the individual and business.
