Advertising in Embassy Magazine


Lucrative – Every year London’s diplomatic missions spend nearly £900m* on goods and services in the UK, both as individuals and as part of the mission’s official expenditure.

Niche – London has the biggest bilateral diplomatic community in the world, numbering some 22,500** diplomats and their families. They represent more than 160 countries and their diplomatic status makes them different to any other market.

Elite – Our subscribers belong to the ABC1 consumer group and are drawn from the political and professional elite in their countries. Around half of the heads of mission in London are hand-picked by their heads of state and are personally wealthy.

Privileged – Our subscribers frequently enjoy generous living allowances for themselves and their families as well as tax-free privileges. Many have to fulfil representational duties.

Recession-proofNo matter what the economic climate, there is always room in an embassy budget for services and products.

Ever-changing – Every year, around one-third of the corps changes, meaning there is always a new market to promote your goods and services to. But it also means service providers cannot afford to be complacent!

Targeted – a virtual network of more than 4000 individual diplomatic subscribers (and growing) log on to the website and receive our monthly magazine directly in their inbox. It is also forwarded within embassy intranets to locally employed staff and family members.

Global – many diplomats posted in more than 50 countries have requested to remain on our circulation list, making our network global. Our digital format is ideal for diplomats, who receive and distribute information instantaneously, making our readership considerably wider than our official subscriber database. In a few easy clicks, relevant intelligence can be forwarded to diplomatic networks and foreign ministries across the globe – without weighing down the diplomatic bag.


Trusted – Embassy is a trusted organisation with a team that has spent over a decade serving this influential market.

Cost-effective – As a digital magazine and network, we are able to offer our advertisers and sponsors extensive access to the diplomatic market for very competitive rates compared to traditional print media because we are able to pass savings on print and distribution costs to our clients.

Well-connected – We are the information hub of the London diplomatic community. Diplomats feed us information and come to us first for advice and recommendations.

Up-to-date – We remain in constant contact with diplomatic missions and our subscriber database is updated regularly. Departing diplomats are invited to join our ex-London list and new arrivals are invited to join the network. The Embassy editor is a familiar face on the circuit and networks extensively with all the diplomatic associations at the Court of St Jame's.


Regular exposure – Advertising in Embassy products will give your products and services regular exposure to embassy officials seeking to buy goods and services.

Enhanced branding – the reputation of your company will be enhanced as your company is directly associated with a product enjoyed and valued by the diplomatic community.

Global reach – Embassy provides additional promotional opportunities in a growing virtual network for diplomats across the globe. Securing business from a diplomat or mission in London today could translate into business in another capital tomorrow.

Direct market access – Person-to-person contacts are vital in this market. Sponsoring Embassy Events will give you direct, targeted access to the decision makers within diplomatic missions seeking to buy your goods and services. Working with Embassy is guaranteed to give your company a competitive advantage in the diplomatic market by helping you build lasting relationships with missions.
