Converge announces national expansion

September 2018

Leading B2B publishing platform and business community opens the door for businesses across the UK to join.

Founded in North East England, Converge has set its sights on the rest of the UK as the company looks to scale both its membership and workforce amidst ambitious growth plans.

James Tennant, Founder of Converge, considers the expansion to be a natural progression for the company, “We already have a national audience reading the content on our publishing platform, having grown the reach from zero to around 14 million in just under three years. So it makes sense, now we've tested and validated the platform in the North East, to open membership up to businesses from across the UK.”

“We're excited to build our business community outside the North East and give more businesses the opportunity to share what they know, earn amazing exposure and build more brand authority with our platform.”

Converge is celebrating the expansion with an intimate launch event, in association with WeWork South Bank and Innovation Partner, Lumo, in London on the 20th of September.

The launch event in London will be the first in a programme of events that will take place across the UK. James goes on to say, “Our panel events provide an excellent opportunity to learn from a variety of people working in different positions, sectors, and specialisms, and discuss relevant and important topics in a welcoming and thought-provoking environment.”

“We'll be taking our panel events around the UK, giving businesses based everywhere the opportunity to come along and hear from industry experts or, if they're feeling confident, sit on a panel themselves.”

In addition to the expansion, a new look for the platform will be unveiled shortly, while the UK tour of panel events will kick off in early 2019. For James, an aesthetic update was long overdue, “The Converge platform has looked pretty much the same since our launch back in late 2015, so we thought it was time to give it an update to ensure our readers and members have the best experience possible.”
