About Us

our story

Marketplace Media is owned by a dedicated team of professionals who have been working with the company’s retail titles for the past 18 years. The aim of the company’s management is to develop evolving communication within the three industries it now serves with highly successful magazine titles – NZ Hardware Journal, Wares and NZ Outdoor Power Equipment. It also manages two annual industry award programmes - Wares Awards and Hardware Industry Awards. Director Simon Little acknowledges that publishing must evolve and develop. The company is already successful with "on page" and "on stage" and is quickly developing the third phase of its development "online / on screen".
