By Bryan Collings, Publishing Director of “Specialist Printing Worldwide”, the official journal of ESMA
Having overseen the success of “Specialist Printing Worldwide” (SPW) since its conception in 2007, I am very pleased to announce a new and exciting era for the magazine.
From Issue 1/2020, SPW will be published by Chamond Media Ltd. I will continue as Publishing Director, with my daughter Nicola Penhallow joining as Publisher and being the primary point of contact for all matters relating to editorial, advertising and distribution. Assisting with a long-term handover period, our friends at Chameleon Business Media will retain an interest in the magazine but moving forward their focus will be on their glass media portfolio including“Glass Worldwide” and GlassPrint.
We are delighted to welcome Nicola, who has over 20 years of international commercial experience in a variety of industries including container shipping, media and accountancy. She has used her marketing degree and extensive sales experience to help small and medium businesses grow. Nicola will be attending many of the forthcoming industry events around the world and is thrilled to have the opportunity to further assist our customers in growing their businesses by sharing their technical expertise and products through SPW.
Having bucked the general trend of trade magazines and achieved consistent growth in terms of content, readership and advertisers, SPW is deeply entrenched in the industry’s global and regional communities throughout the industrial, graphic and textile sectors. The expanded publishing team will now further cement our position as a unique provider of technical and educational material to users of screen and digital printing systems, offering practical solutions to the everyday issues faced by our ever-growing readership.
Building on the core strengths of SPW, we look forward to working with our subscribers, advertisers, editorial contributors and partner trade associations and event organisers to offer new and exciting opportunities to meet the industry’s needs.
