Gift Focus – 100 and counting!

Gift Focus, the first title to be published by KD Media Publishing, celebrated its 100th issue earlier this year.

The B2B title which started way back in the year 1999 has gone on to become the leading trade title for the giftware industry.

Marketing Manager, Michael Richards said “It's an incredible achievement for Gift Focus to consistently stay at the top despite ever changing and challenging market conditions and the impact of both digital and social media. Gift Focus has remained a go-to publication for those who want to know the latest goings on within the giftware industry”.

Editor, Rachel Westall said “100 issues young! The magazine has come such a long way since its launch edition back in 1999.  Myself and all the Gift Focus team would like to thank our readers and advertisers for their continued support”.

Rob Clark, Managing Director of KD Media Publishing added “Since it was first published 17 years ago, Gift Focus has gained an enviable reputation of being the leading publication in the giftware industry. Much has changed over the years, not only in terms of trends, buying habits and exhibition coverage but also in the use of technology. Once again, Gift Focus has led the way in creating a potent online presence to help the magazine increase its reach worldwide. Our aim is to continue to provide a first-rate magazine to help suppliers and retailers alike to run their businesses successfully and ever-more profitably”.
