Mediahuis Nederland is built on an unconditional belief in independent journalism. Mediahuis brings stories and people together. With influential media brands and our in-depth knowledge of our audience and the media landscape. Throughout the Netherlands. And around the corner from you.
As the publisher of well-known brands such as De Telegraaf, VROUW, Privé, GroupDeal, NSMBL and Dumpert, Mediahuis reaches a wide selection of target groups throughout the Netherlands. Thanks to regional brands including Noordhollands Dagblad and Haarlems Dagblad, there is a close relationship with the region.
By listening to its audience and target group, Mediahuis creates a wide range of strategic and creative solutions for advertisers. Solutions are developed by the in-house creative studio, MHX, and Mediahuis’ content marketing agency, Wayne Parker Kent.
The binding factor between this multitude of media? Building and nurturing lasting relationships. With the public, with advertisers and with the more than 1200 employees of Mediahuis.
This makes Mediahuis your ideal strategic and creative partner; a media company that looks beyond its own front door, flat coverage and standard solutions.
