Launches new design and new channels on travel and CFOs.
BY LBC STAFF
As it celebrates its tenth anniversary, Latin Business Chronicle gets a complete make-over. The design was developed by Latin Trade Group art director Elizabeth Carlisle, while Merit Designs developed the technical platform.
This is the third design for Latin Business Chronicle since it was launched in 2001. The second design was developed by Merit Designs in 2006.
In addition to a new design, Latin Business Chronicle is also launching two new channels with special coverage: Travel and CFO. The travel channel will include reports, destination guides, the popular Frequent Traveler column and other content relevant to business travelers in Latin America, using a combination of content from Latin Business Chronicle as well as other Latin Trade Group publications such as Latin Trade magazine and Splendid.
The CFO channel will aim to provide frequent coverage relevant to CFO’s of companies operating in Latin America, both local and foreign firms. It includes interviews and reports and coverage of the awards presented by Latin Trade magazine.
“We are very pleased with the new design,” says Joachim Bamrud, executive editor of the Latin Trade Group. “This will further make LBC an attractive option for key information and business intelligence, following our extensive addition of unique content”
The make-over follows a major boost in content the past two years. Since the start of 2010, Latin Business Chronicle has added 16 new rankings, indexes and statistical analyses, bringing the total to 41.
