HUB Uitgevers (HUB Publishers) was a Netherlands-based magazine publisher. HUB Uitgevers was founded in 1993 and has grown to be one of the leading IT publishers, with over 15 consumer titles, and a number of business-to-business magazines. More recently they ventured into the lifestyle segment publishing two women's and a men's magazine.

In November 2007, HUB Uitgevers took over four magazine titles from VNU Media: Computer Idee, PCM, Power Unlimited and the Dutch license for Gizmodo magazine. In 2010 HUB Uitgevers acquired a considerable stake in Focus Media, publisher of the Netherlands' oldest photography magazine.

On August 26 the publisher filed for bankruptcy, one day later the bankruptcy was granted.
