Advertising and sponsorship opportunities

CRN is more than just a newspaper, it is a true cross-media brand with a presence in print, digital and online editions as well as our e-newsletter, PDA and mobile service and special events and exhibitions, all ensuring we get the right information to the right audience in the format they prefer. With our own research and market intelligence department, we can back our editorial with the best information, all tailored to our readers’ needs.

CRN can deliver any combination of bespoke opportunities or sponsorship packages depending on how you want to reach your target market. If you want to deliver a particular message we can carry out a programme of research, run a round table, provide a dedicated supplement and run a one-day conference. Whatever the task, CRN can provide an integrated marketing solution.

News, analysis, channel research, technology information, in-depth features and dedicated How to Sell and Focus supplements make CRN the most respected, highest-quality editorial newspaper. Start-ups, collapses, events, world news, and exclusive stories that tell you how well, or how badly, your competitors are doing; it is all here.
