The October 2011 issue of travelGBI, the inbound tourism trade newspaper for Great Britain and Ireland, was mailed to subscribers at the beginning of this week. Readers can also access the issue free of charge at its website.
TravelGBI is published by Travelscope Travel Publications in London E2. Editorial and advertising production is handled by Alistair Dabbs for Bento Media.
Editorially, the October 2011 involved subbing some 200 stories (172 reached print), inventing 139 headlines, writing 29 picture captions, Photoshopping 52 images, and both designing and laying out 21 tabloid pages. For advertising, the issue involved preflighting, correcting and placing 33 ads (including three full-page, full-bleed ads), and designing one full-page advertorial for London & Partners.
Bento Media also dealt with colour proofing and delivery of final PDFs to the printers and website designers.
