Time Out Group is a leading global media and hospitality business that inspires and enables people to discover and experience the best of the city.
It all began in London in 1968 when Time Out helped people discover the exciting new urban cultures that had started up all over the capital. Since then, this iconic brand has consistently maintained its status as the go-to source of inspiration for both locals and visitors alike – today, it is the only global brand dedicated to city life.
Through two highly synergistic business divisions – Time Out Media and Time Out Market – the Company helps its large audience go out better in the world's greatest cities and connects global brands as well as local talent with this valuable audience.
Time Out Media’s multiple digital and physical channels span websites, mobile, social media, videos and Live Events. Across these channels, Time Out distributes its high-quality content – written and curated by a global team of local expert journalists – around the best food, drinks, culture, art, music, theatre, travel and entertainment in 333 cities and 59 countries. The Company is monetising this global reach and its strong traffic from a desirable audience by offering bespoke 360-degree multichannel advertising solutions to international, national and local brands and businesses. Since its launch in 1968, Time Out has become a global brand that advertisers and consumers love and trust.
Time Out Market is the world's first editorially curated food and cultural market, leveraging the Time Out brand to bring the best of the city together under one roof: its best chefs, drinks and cultural experiences – based on the editorial curation Time Out has always been known for. The first Time Out Market opened in 2014 in Lisbon, quickly becoming one of the city's most popular destinations with 4m visitors in 2019. The success of Lisbon brought further expansion and there are currently seven open Markets: in addition to Lisbon, there are sites in New York, Boston, Montreal, Chicago, Dubai and Cape Town. More Time Out Market locations are in the pipeline as the global expansion continues.
Time Out is headquartered in London (United Kingdom) and listed on London's AIM stock exchange, trading under the ticker symbol 'TMO'.
