Luxury lifestyle title Tempus Magazine joins new publisher Vantage Media Group
Tempus will be the flagship title of newly formed publishing and content agency Vantage Media Group
Luxury lifestyle title Tempus has been acquired by newly formed Mayfair-based publisher and content agency Vantage Media Group, marking a new phase of growth for the award-nominated publication. Tempus undertook an extensive rebrand in 2017, transforming from a niche watch title to a coffee table book-style magazine specialising in luxury lifestyle and supported by the UK’s first dedicated daily luxury news website, tempusmagazine.co.uk.
Vantage Media Group will see core members of the brand’s editorial and events team continue to grow Tempus through 2019, while also offering its expertise to Vantage’s clients via contract publishing projects, digital content creation and luxury brand events.
“Team Tempus is delighted to join Vantage Media Group and launch this new company,” said editor Rachel Ingram. “It’s an exciting opportunity not just to continue creating this quality magazine for the luxury sector, but also to steer the creative vision of Vantage Media Group from the very beginning. We look forward to bringing our team’s expertise to our present and future clients.”
The move follows months of negotiation, with the deal closing just weeks after the publishing industry’s prestigious annual BSME Awards at which Tempus received two nominations – for Editor of the Year and Art Editor of the Year in the independent category – for the first time in its history.
“We’re delighted to have Tempus Magazine and its talented team on board to head up the launch of Vantage Media Group,” said chairman Floyd Woodrow. “We look forward to working on a range of projects that will benefit from their expert knowledge, rich industry contacts, attention to detail and creative flair.”
As part of Vantage Media Group’s portfolio, Tempus Magazine will publish six issues in 2019, starting with its annual Travel Edition in late January.
“It’s been a challenging year for the publishing industry as a whole but we’re confident that there is extraordinary potential in bespoke content creation, particularly in the luxury sector,” said Ingram. “With the support of our new parent company, Tempus will be able to maintain the exceptional quality of its print and digital products, while continuing to push the boundaries of our expert editorial focus.”
