C&IT redesigns magazine and website

Same great content but now with even more essential insight for event planners, says editor Calum Di Lieto.

C&IT has been rebranded, redesigned and we’ve reimagined what we’re offering our readers. 

Don’t worry, everything you know and love about us is still here, we’ve just added another layer of depth and insight. 

It’s like doubling-up on your favourite burger – same great taste just with more meat (or whatever the vegan alternative might be). 

Given our recent global expansion, we felt we could do more for our audiences around the world. So we’re tapping into event planners in the UK, the US and APAC and getting them to provide a level of knowledge and insight that is more measurable. 

Using this, among a number of other scoring methods, C&IT is now able to review and rate destinations, hotels and venues in a fair and informed way, which can help event planners make the right decisions. 

In the upcoming spring issue of the magazine, we look at three very different incentive destinations in Thailand, the best conference hotels in Chicago and a collection of sustainable venues across the world. 

Our global advisory board have then discussed these and scored them against a well-researched set of criteria. The end result is a star-rating purely focused on MICE purposes that you can use to inform your decision-making processes. 

It’s a methodology not too dissimilar to our well-established and well-respected C&IT Awards, which we’ve now launched in the Americas and APAC too. 

But all this data and number crunching hasn’t taken away from our personality. We still aim to excite and engage – after all, this is an industry full of creativity and flair. 

I hope that when you’re flicking through the pages of the next issue and browsing the website, you will be as delighted as I am with the new look and feel.
