Source Media Group celebrates its 5th

Source Media Group, publishers of the newly re-designed Western Canadian Resorts magazine, now known simply as, Resorts, celebrated its fifth anniversary on October 1st with Oktoberfest celebrations in Calgary and Edmonton. Clients, suppliers, contractors, staff, family and friends feasted on bratwurst and sauerkraut, washed down by beer served in etched Source Media Group 5th Anniversary mugs (which they were then invited to keep).

In terms of the newly designed Resorts, associate publisher Jim Zang says, “The changes are dramatic in scope. We’ve changed the content, both in terms of where we go and how we cover each destination, the design of the magazine, and even the distribution."

He credits his team for a smooth transition, "Our creative director Lynn Campbell, was given carte blanche to do a re-design and did a fantastic job. Likewise, our new Resorts editor, Laurie Papineau, brings a wealth of knowledge and experience--not to mention amusing personal travel stories--to the team.”

In conjunction with the new magazine, a new website was launched at www.resortsmag.com. Congratulations!
