Media & Editorial Projects Ltd (MEP Publishers)

MEP was founded in 1990 (and incorporated in 1991) by veteran journalist Jeremy Taylor and Joanne Mendes, and now is one of the Caribbean’s longest-running and most respected publishing houses. With over 25 years of serving local, regional, and multi-national clients (from corporations and state agencies to SMBs and NGOs), there are few in the region as well equipped to meet your publishing needs.

Based in Port of Spain, Trinidad & Tobago, MEP’s perhaps best known as the publishers of high-quality Caribbean print and digital tourism, culture, and business magazines, like Caribbean Beat, CONTACT Business, Discover Trinidad & Tobago, and Parkite Sports. In addition to magazines, also produce a range of corporate and company branding material — from brochures and newsletters to annual reports and directories. Outside of that core work, we publish and have distributed books of Caribbean interest through our book imprint, Prospect Press (founded in 1994).

After more than a quarter century, we are dedicated to being a stable and reliable publisher, but also agile and forward-looking, so that we can both meet and anticipate our clients’ needs. With a core of full-time staff, as well as freelance and agency partners around the world, we continue to expand our print and digital offerings across platforms, so that we can help you tell your story and connect with your audience.
