London (October 18, 2018) – Culture Trip, the travel, media and entertainment start-up, has today launched a new magazine for its fast-growing millennial audience.
Culture Trip Magazine showcases a collection of the very best of the inspiring stories produced by its unique network of content creators based all over the world.
Culture Trip’s website and app have attracted millions of fans with its inspiring mix of stories revealing what is unique and special about a place, its people and its culture. Attracting around 18 million monthly unique visitors to its website every month, Culture Trip also has a social media following exceeding 7 million.
Kris Naudts, founder and CEO, said: “Our network of local writers, photographers and illustrators allows us to tell amazing stories through the eyes of people that know a place best. We know that many millions of people rely on us to find out what is special about places, people and cultures. It was an obvious step to make those inspiring stories available in a printed format.”
The first edition published today (Oct 18) includes:
An original photography commission on the World Nomad Games in Kyrgyzstan, that features on the cover of the magazine.
An inspiring story retracing the footsteps of Spanish artist Joan Miro
An Interview with former UN employee, Jessica Nabongo, about what it means to become the first black woman to visit every UN recognised country in the world
A feature with Superstar DJ Steve Aoki – the world’s most travelled musician – sharing the places that have really captured his imagination
Natalie Smith, publishing director, added: “It’s a myth that Millennials don’t like print. Many of our millions of users told us that they wanted our inspiring storytelling in a more tangible format and that’s what we are publishing.
“You’ll find the same brilliant storytelling, the same amazing photography and the same editorial excellence as on our site or in our app – but this time in a beautiful magazine our readers can hold, come back to and share with their friends.”
The quarterly magazine is being distributed at tube and rail stations across London and on the Eurostar to Paris. It will also be available in hotel lobbies, coffee shops and cafes and at events and venues in London and elsewhere.
The aim is to have 100,000 copies in circulation by the end of this year. Most of the featured content will be exclusive to the magazine, before it’s available on the website.
