About the diplomatic market

Lucrative

Every year London’s diplomatic missions spend nearly £2.3bn* 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, so their diplomatic status makes them different to any other market.

Elite

Our subscribers belong to the ABC1 consumer group. They 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, and many have to fulfill representational duties.

Recession-proof

No matter what the economic climate is, there is always room in an embassy budget for services and products.

Ever-changing

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

Targeted

A virtual network of more than 4000 individual diplomatic subscribers (and growing) receive our bi-monthly Embassy 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 requested to remain on our circulation list, making our network global. Our digital format is ideal for diplomat because they can receive and distribute information instantaneously. As a result our readership is considerably wider than our official subscriber database and relevant intelligence can be forwarded to diplomatic networks and foreign ministries across the globe with just a few easy clicks.
