Our best wishes to all during a tough time

Dear Friends and colleagues,

As one of your trusted media partners and your friends, we want to offer you some assurance and indeed our good wishes during what will be a difficult, uncertain couple of months.

Progressive Preschool magazine, PreschoolNews.net and the Progressive Preschool Awards are a resource for sharing information and now, more than ever, this remains vital.

Our following of retail buyers really do rely on us to keep them up to date with trends, products, analysis and insights. And suppliers rely on us, and indeed other media outlets, to deliver it for them.

This will absolutely not change – in fact across our wide range of print titles we have seen a spike in subscription requests and an increase in open rates across our digital news websites in the last week.

And so our message to you is this: We’re here, we’re here to stay, and we are here for you. We all hope that this is a short-term problem and while it will of course affect us all to some degree, by continuing to work together, sharing information, planning ahead and being present we can limit the degree to which we are all affected.

It is crucial that we continue to support each other. We can confirm that there will be no interruption to our print and digital offerings – retailers will still receive our magazines and read our digital news. We really do look forward to seeing you soon whether it be at Toymaster, Harrogate International Nursery Fair, or somewhere else. The show(s) will go on and we’ll all prosper again.

As a company we are working to highlight your message more than ever. Our marketing team has increased activity to ensure the best possible spread of magazine readership and digital news following, as well as making the most of our social media channels. This pool of readers across our group is 87,743. Send us your news, send us your views, call for a chat. We are here. We will help.

Max Publishing extends its very best wishes to all those who are affected either directly or indirectly by Covid-19. We remain focused on ‘the other side’ and have high hopes for a return of great consumer confidence, a renewed affection for the high street and a summer of real celebration.

Keep the faith.

Rob Willis, Jacqui Parr, Sam Loveday, Jo Pilcher and the rest of the PPS Team.
