About Time Out Group plc

Time Out is, and always has been, your best friend in the city. It all began in London in 1968 when Time Out helped people explore the exciting new urban cultures that started up all over the capital and we have consistently maintained our status as the ‘go to’ source of inspiration for both locals and visitors alike. Today, Time Out is bringing its hunger for discovery and honest voice to 315 cities in 58 countries. We are proud to say that we are now the leading global media and entertainment business that inspires and enables people to make the most of the city. If you want to know about food, attractions, art, culture, shopping, nightlife and travel, then Time Out is your social companion.

Everything we do helps people discover, book and share what the world’s cities have to offer. From our powerful content and top-quality curation to the products and selected offers that can be booked directly with us, the solutions for partners to connect with our audience, or the imagination of our Live Events – we are global, and no one knows the city like us. Our global reach includes a massive online presence, mobile applications, city magazines, guides and more. Now Time Out Market is taking that to the next level, bringing the best of a city together under one roof in Lisbon, and in 2019, new Time Out Markets are set to open in Miami, New York, Boston, Chicago and Montreal.

In 2016, Time Out Group was listed on London's AIM stock exchange, raising investment to position the company for the next stage of its growth and development. It is an exciting time as we are evolving this iconic brand into a digital, transactional business and continue to shape the future of the city experience for both locals and visitors.


Time Out is a dynamic, pioneering brand and so is our team. We want to work with the best and brightest talent because we work for the world’s greatest cities, the people enjoying them and the businesses in them.
