Routes has agreed a new partnership with long-established travel trade publisher TTG Media to produce air service development magazine, Routes News, and the delegate directories at each of the Routes exhibitions.
TTG Media was founded in the UK as Travel Trade Gazette in 1953. Its existing portfolio includes the weekly magazine TTG, travel trade website ttgmedia.com and a range of events for the industry.
Routes director Katie Bland said: "We’re delighted to be working with TTG Media as our partner for Routes News and the Routes Delegate Directories. Their team has a wealth of experience in publishing Travel Trade Gazette along with a range of other business to business travel publications and events, making them a well-qualified and relevant publishing partner for Routes."
"We’re also really pleased that Graham Newton is continuing in his editorship of Routes News and that Rebecca Randall - who was responsible for advertising sales for Routes News and the Delegate Directories from 2008 to 2014 - has been appointed by TTG Media to pick up the commercial reins again," she added.
TTG Media managing director Daniel Pearce said: “We look forward to bringing TTG’s rich experience in travel and tourism publishing to these already very successful titles. Both TTG Media and Routes will be consulting with Routes delegates and other stakeholders to find out exactly how we can develop them in 2016.”
TTG Media also operates a network of licensed partners in other countries, including TTG Czech Republic, TTG Italia, TTG Mena, TTG Nordic and TTG Russia.
The first issue of the magazine to be published by TTG Media will be distributed at World Routes in Durban, South Africa next week...
