Impressive Upsurge for Camping & Caravanning Magazine
Camping & Caravanning magazine is celebrating a year-on-year growth of over eight per cent.
The Camping and Caravanning Club’s official publication recorded an average net circulation for January to December 2009 of 237,168, according to figures released today by the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC), the independent body that authenticates and reports on media performance.
The total represents an impressive increase of 17,787 copies.
The world’s longest established and largest circulation monthly magazine for all forms of camping underwent a facelift in 2009.
The design was given a refresh whilst the Out & About section (a listings guide for Club meets) was incorporated into the magazine, which also became perfectly bound.
Additional improvements were made to the magazine’s structure and regular sections, including the introduction of a nostalgic column called ‘From the Archive’.
Editor Simon McGrath said: “Camping & Caravanning magazine continues to go through a busy and exciting period of growth and development.
“Feedback from our members shows that they are very happy with the magazine, while advertisers are also keen to work with us.”
Marketing & Communications Director Matthew Eastlake added: “Camping & Caravanning is bucking the trend of the magazine industry, which is generally experiencing hard times of late.
“The latest ABC figure helps highlight the growth of our Club, which caters for everyone, and the magazine is an integral part of a member’s subscription package.
“The magazine will continue to go from strength-to-strength.”
Camping & Caravanning magazine is free to members.
