New website unveiled for Americas, Asia and Gulf-Africa Duty Free Magazine

By Wendy Morley

The highly anticipated new website for Americas, Asia and Gulf-Africa Duty Free magazines has now launched - www.dutyfreemagazine.ca. “We’ve been pretty much ready for some time, but we wanted to make sure everything was perfect before announcing the launch,” says Editor in Chief Hibah Noor.

The company revised the format of the popular weekly enewsletter earlier this year; now that the website has launched, the company has further streamlined the enewsletter, keeping the branding and look consistent. “The new site has a modern, clean look that represents duty free well, and easily showcases the luxury brands that have become the industry’s hallmarks,” says Noor.

“As the regional specialist, we needed to ensure we were able to highlight our three regions without a bulky, cumbersome site,” she says. “We think we’ve managed to create the perfect solution.”

The new website offers a number of unique marketing possibilities, which are being offered for the coming year.

In addition to the revised website and weekly enewsletter, Americas, Asia and Gulf-Africa Duty Free magazines now have a dedicated social media team. “Our social media focus really kicked off in Cannes,” says Noor. “We can see that the industry is more and more interested in a digital platform, and we are ensuring that we have a complete, fully rounded offering of up-to-date information.”

In partnership with Wild Tiger Rum, Americas, Asia and Gulf-Africa Duty Free magazine is offering an Instagram contest to kick off its website and social media launch. To enter, follow the steps below:

1. Follow @duty_free_magazine on Instagram

2. Follow @ wildtigerrum on Instagram

3. Tag three industry colleagues in both feeds

Three (3) winners will be randomly chosen from each Instagram page and will win a custom, personalized Rum Box at the Summit of the Americas in Orlando, March, 2018 or by mail.
