Regional press trade body set for new base as PA moves on

The News Media Association is set for a new home as a result of the Press Association’s move to new London offices.

The trade body for the regional and national press will now based at New Bridge Street, in London, after leaving PA’s old Vauxhall Bridge Road headquarters.

PA announced last year that it was leaving Vauxhall Bridge Road and the move to its new offices at The Point, Paddington took place on Monday.

As a result the NMA will now be sharing office space at New Bridge Street with the NLA, a publisher-owned rights licensing and database business, which manages the rights of thousands of print and web titles.  It  is due to make the move on Friday.

In a blog for the NLA, NMA deputy chief executive Lynne Anderson wrote: “The move will symbolise a coming together between two organisations who share very similar values.

“We both believe passionately in the value of journalism and the importance of finding a sustainable business model to enable commercial providers to continue to invest in it.”

She added: “We are delighted to be embarking on this new chapter in our history by moving into new premises with NLA media access.

“By collaborating and working more closely together, it will be the start of a new partnership which will benefit our two organisations and the industry we both serve.”
