What is EP?

EP is now the leading communicator on business thinking and opinion in the hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism industry, providing a central reference point for discussion and debate on the key issues of the day.

EP publishes three magazines: Entrepreneurs and Innovation and Food Service Action and Perspective – The Independent Hotel Magazine.

Through informal learning and events it provides those wishing to meet key leaders the opportunity to learn from them in a relaxed environment. The Global Hospitality Network connects professionals across the world for both learning and knowledge share. EP offers a range of services including consultancy, professional advice, entrepreneur development and professional communication services, and also supports a diverse group of business partners to create opportunities in the hospitality industry for development.There are three main ways to advertise to the key decision makers across all sectors of the hospitality, leisure and travel and tourism industry.
