Welcome to Estates Gazette’s regional and sector features list for 2017. We have regional features every week in the magazine so we can be more responsive and timely and these will be topic-led rather than location-led. So, if there is a hot new office trend in Bristol, a masterplan launched for a regeneration project in Leeds, and an interesting shed investment deal that bucks the trend in the Midlands, then we will be covering them all in the same week.

We are interested in trends and issues that are affecting or could potentially affect the market for good or bad, whether it is in Cornwall or Manchester, Edinburgh or Dover. We are interested in profiles and case studies – people or companies that are doing something different or innovative that our readers could learn from or need to know about.

EG London will continue eight times a year and we have programme of sector supplements which will look at generic trends and issues across the UK. Ideas for topics, themes and trends for supplements should be submitted at least eight weeks ahead of the publication date.

If you would like to suggest feature ideas to the editorial team, please contact egfeatures@estatesgazette.com. To book advertising, please contact us here. Click on the + where available to view the feature synopsis.
