London, UK: Digital business information and research publisher E-consultancy ( has published the most comprehensive directory of new media and digital agencies in the UK, which now includes more than 2,500 listings and dynamic functionality to ensure the directory is up-to-date whenever it is downloaded.

First published last year, the updated directory contains key information on the majority of the UK’s estimated 3,000 new media agencies. Listings include a full agency description, client lists, area of expertise and contact details.

The 2004 New Media Agencies Directory is dynamic, ensuring that new listings appear in the report as soon as they have been approved and added to the website. Accordingly, agency personnel can edit their listing safe in the knowledge that the changes will be reflected in future downloads of the directory.

E-consultancy’s subscribers can take advantage of an enhanced listing, where search terms are optimised – great for internal and external search - and a colour logo is added. E-consultancy charges an annual fee of £99 for access to exclusive, best practice content, as well as roundtables, ‘Beauty Parade’ events, press release distribution and networking.

“This is the most comprehensive directory of UK new media agencies available and has always been a great source of leads and exposure for our users,” said E-consultancy CEO Ashley Friedlein.

“E-consultancy has become a kind of best practice hub for the new media industry, so it naturally follows that the vast majority of new media agencies in the UK use the site to raise awareness,” he added. “We are planning to launch additional features and tools to help these companies over the coming months.”
