What do you think about IMarEST Magazines? - Spare a few minutes to provide us your feedback... SurveyThe Institute of Marine Engineering Science and Technology (IMarEST) today announced the outsourcing of its prestigious marine magazines.
To streamline production and enhance delivery, the IMarEST has partnered with award winning media company Caspian Media to produce Marine Engineers Review (MER), Shipping World and Shipbuilder (SWSB), Maritime IT & Electronics (MITE), Offshore Technology and the Marine Scientist.
Caspian Media will be responsible for all published editorial, advertisement sales, digital content, design, production, conferences production and staging to compliment the IMarEST's continuing programme of Learned Society events.
IMarEST's Head of Programmes, Charlotte Lord, said: "This move will help us transform the Institute's media portfolio and therefore will greatly improve the service that we provide to our global membership base, as well as developing our communication channels and knowledge sharing services that we provide both for our members and the wider international marine sector.
"With our subscribers working in many diverse areas of the marine sector, we are keen to make sure the publications we deliver are relevant and of a consistently good quality. As such, we will soon be seeking input into the development of our titles from our subscribers to shape how we develop these going forward."
IMarEST's editorial staff will be based at Caspian Media's Chelsea Harbour headquarters, London. The company, whose clients include the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, Vodafone and the CBI, specialises in digital content, magazine publishing, websites and events.
IMarEST's magazines, regarded as market leaders in marine publishing, are read by both the Institute's global members as well as subscribers from the wider marine industry.
IMarEST, which was founded in 1889, is the largest marine organisation of its kind in the world, bringing together marine engineers, scientists and technologists from more than 100 countries into one international multi-disciplinary professional body.
Namrata Nadkarni, Editor of Marine Engineers Review (MER) said: "We're excited to be working with Caspian Media, who are a significant global publisher. We will continue to produce high quality articles and maintain our industry presence, and the support by a dedicated publisher will greatly benefit our global subscriber base."
Caspian Media's Publishing Director Ian Gerrard said: "This is a long term partnership that will enhance the talent and capabilities of both organisations. The IMarEST's ambition to transform and grow their media activities is a perfect match for our extensive skills and experience."
