As we head into the holiday season, there is some exciting news to share! As of December 11, WhereTraveler Seattle has been acquired by locally owned and operated Encore Media Group.
Encore, a Seattle-based publisher with more than 50 years of experience, is thrilled to return to work in the local travel industry by adding WhereTraveler Seattle to our portfolio of publications. Our team is already hard at work evaluating the magazine for ways to strengthen its content, improve its readability and grow its reach. All this is being done to produce products that you will be proud to market your business in, offer at your hotel and hand to all Seattle visitors.
Beginning in February 2020, we will reestablish WhereTraveler Seattle as the preeminent tourism publication in Seattle. Our new, enhanced monthly magazine will include a larger format (back to the original size) with improved paper quality, increased page count and expanded editorial content. Please note that due to the transition, we will not be publishing a January issue of the monthly magazine.
Looking forward, WhereTraveler Seattle magazine will continue to offer extensive listings of shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, while our helpful maps make navigating our region easier. In addition, we will be expanding our calendar of monthly events and refocusing our efforts to broaden our feature stories to be even more current and appealing. Our editorial expansions will also incorporate additional featurettes such as My Seattle, a Q&A with prominent Seattle residents, and Field Trips, highlighting destinations around the Puget Sound.
We at WhereTraveler Seattle and Encore Media Group hope that you will be pleased with the amazing improvements and enhancements that we are making to the monthly magazine and companion pieces, and we thank you for your patience and continued support through this transition.
