Understanding and reaching our audience

Freeman serves three distinct business audiences.

Energy sector: Our primary audience in this sector includes the electricity, oil and gas, transport fuels, renewable energy, energy efficiency and carbon industries.

Extractives sector: Our primary audience in this sector includes the mining, quarrying, roading, contracting, concrete and cement industries.

Legal sector: Our primary audience in this sector includes legal practitioners spanning small legal firms and chambers to large corporate law firms. It also includes all of the main courts and tribunals.

Within these key industries it reaches over 90 per cent of industry participants (in some cases near 100 per cent) at a decision-maker, professional, and C-suite level.

Freeman's secondary audience captures service providers to these industries – professional services firms, consultancies, engineering companies, technology companies, central and local Government, regulators, product importers and distributors.

A further tertiary audience includes many of New Zealand’s top 200 organisations at a specialist or company director level.
