About Focus

Focus includes the regional features section of Estates Gazette. We travel the country and occasionally abroad (when allowed) analysing trends across all commercial property sectors and sometimes residential too.

There are two of us based in London: Stacey Meadwell, regional editor (that’s me), Nadia Elghamry, deputy regional editor. We also have regional assistance from Lisa Pilkington who is EG’s Midlands Editor based in Birmingham.

Our features list is carved in a tablet of stone around September time. For 2014′s list click here.

We host a drinks and networking events in key markets throughout the year for more details about those click here.

As and when a regional Focus synopsis is ready – usually six weeks ahead of publication – we’ll publish it on this blog and archives can be found under Synopses in our categories list. You can also go on our e-mailing list to receive all Focus synopses including those for the sector Focus’s which are edited by Noella Kivlehan. If this is something you would like to do then email Sharon Harnett who manages the list.

What else do you need to know about regional Focus’s? Deadlines for receipt of editorial information is normally 3-31/2 weeks prior to the publication date – yes we work that far ahead. We don’t take submissions but we are interested in ideas prior to the synopsis being issued.

And, regardless of how tempted you are, don’t mention advertising it’ll just make it terribly awkward for everyone. Click here if its advertising information you need.

And here are our individual biographies:
