Trade group Emap to close all print editions

Emap has announced a restructuring – and the closure of all print editions at the Retail Week and Nursing Times publisher. Emap – originally East Midlands Allied Press, a local newspaper group – was split up in 2008, with the trade titles keeping the Emap name and German group Bauer taking over the consumer titles to overtake IPC (now Time Inc UK) as Britain’s biggest publishing group.

Campaign quotes Duncan Painter, chief executive at Top Right Group, Emap’s owner:

Customers are sending a clear message:  digital subscriptions and live events are the formats they want to engage with. This change finalises our group’s migration to a digital and large scale events company.
