We’re delighted to announce that from the start of our new financial year on 1st October, Installation will be moving to a hybrid content model that will see the introduction of a new schedule of print and digital publications produced every quarter.
The new hybrid model will see Installation produce eight standard publications per year, with one print publication and one digital edition in each quarter. As quarterly publications, the print editions will offer deeper and more expansive coverage of the AV marketplace, focusing on specific technology areas such as digital signage, collaboration, and projection. Our digital editions will bring you the latest projects, tech, and solutions being deployed in specific vertical markets, with supplements dedicated to the education, corporate, hospitality and retail, and visitor attractions sectors. Please see our 2020/21 content schedule for a breakdown.
In addition to these core titles, we will also be expanding the depth and volume of our online content with a new slate of case studies, ebooks, podcasts, and more to further bolster our burgeoning website offering.
“This is a very important evolution in our strategy and one that we are excited to make as we build for the long-term future of Installation, and its role in an increasingly digital professional environment,” said James McKeown, group content director, B2B at Future.
“Though we are making these changes during quite exceptional times, we make them using the future as the catalyst just as much as the present. We’ve regularly sought the counsel of our readers and supporters about their preferences and realities and while print continues to have a role, our new hybrid model will allow us to more appropriately meet the needs of our audience, advertisers, and partners via the channels, and at the times, that serve them most effectively.”
The new hybrid model will see even greater focus placed on Installation’s website as a destination for AV professionals. “The strategy more meaningfully focuses on driving a richer stream of digital and website content to keep our audience informed and help them to make better decisions in their day-to-day world of work,” McKeown continued. “The need for real-time information in our changing world has never been more acute, and the most effective and appropriate way to deliver that insight is via our digital channels, which our hybrid model gives us the agility to achieve.”
All print and digital edition subscribers will continue to receive copies of Installation in the new schedule, and if you would like to sign up to any of our free subscription services, then you can do so here.
We look forward to continuing to serve you with the best independent coverage of this fabulous AV marketplace we call home.
