ProMedia was started in 2010 by Joan Blaas (CEO ProMedia) in an attic room in Breda. We have grown from 1 title, 1 journalist, 1 IT professional and Joan into the publishing house and multimedia company in the field of mobility, traffic and transport in the Netherlands. We have over 15 titles, write in multiple languages, and our titles and events reach professionals around the world.
Over the past few years we have taken over several major titles and various branches were spread throughout the Netherlands. In 2020 we landed in the beautiful building of the Delftse Poort, located next to Rotterdam Central. We also have an office and two studios there. In addition, our employees work throughout the Netherlands, but also from Germany, Belgium, Turkey and even Bosnia.
At ProMedia, colleagues work together in five Business Units: Transport, Maritime, Rail, Passenger Transport and Automotive. Professionals with specialized expertise of the sector in which they operate work in each team. Each Business Unit consists of a Business Unit Manager, an editorial team with several trade journalists, account managers and a product manager (responsible for events and subscriptions, among other things).
All teams have a high degree of independence and there is a lot of room for creativity and new ideas.

Online, with the daily newsletters, via the newspaper and the magazines, the editors keep you informed of the latest developments on a daily basis and provide interpretation of the latest news in the transport and maritime sector in the Netherlands and Flanders.
