Purpose & Principles

Throughout Informa, in every market and Informa business, we share the same purpose: to champion the specialist, connecting people with knowledge to help them learn more, know more and do more.

Alongside this purpose, our teams and colleagues follow four distinct guiding principles.

These describe key aspects of our culture and what we believe in, and they guide how we engage with one another, with customers and with all our partners.

For more information on how we work, see the Talent section or read our key Policies.
