Harvey Grotsky enjoyed a successful career in advertising sales before taking a leap of faith in the 1970s when he founded Coastal Communications Corporation and published his first B2B magazine — Hotel & Resort Industry. Designed for lodging industry buyers and management, the magazine was an instant hit. In September 1983, Grotsky debuted his new monthly magazine — Corporate & Incentive Travel — which focused on “the special needs of the corporate and incentive travel professional.”
In the premiere issue, Grotsky wrote, “It is the aim of Corporate & Incentive Travel to help business travel planners and travel agents make their sometimes complex travel decisions more easily. In the coming months and year, we will present timely, informative and entertaining articles on the topics, events, places and people of primary concern to you, the corporate-travel professional.
Even as the role of the professional corporate meeting planner has evolved into a more strategic position, the mission of Corporate & Incentive Travel remains the same: to provide a compelling package of news, in-depth features and destination reports, meeting planning basics and viewpoints from meeting planners and industry experts. Today, Grotsky’s flagship magazine Corporate & Incentive Travel enjoys an audited subscriber base of more than 40,000 devoted readers who find everything they need within the pages of the magazine to make their job easier and more productive.
Corporate & Incentive Travel’s success prompted Grotsky to create a magazine devoted to the needs of corporate meeting planners who stage meetings, events and incentive programs exclusively for the insurance industry. Insurance Meetings and Incentives debuted on a bi-monthly basis in 1993. Later, the title was updated to Insurance Meetings Management and again, in 2006, it was changed to Insurance & Financial Meetings Management to accommodate planners in both industries. I&FMM is the only standalone B2B meetings magazine targeted to the insurance and financial services industries. Published bi-monthly, the magazine reaches more than 5,000 meeting and incentive travel decision-makers.
In 2008, Association Conventions & Facilities debuted with a circulation of 20,500. The newest of the company’s three meetings magazines, the bi-monthly AC&F is a pure meetings and conventions publication devoted to the unique needs of the association meeting planner and has garnered an exceptional reputation for excellent, timely and relevant editorial content.
Advertisers reap the rewards of a solid, effective advertising campaign every time they connect with our qualified audience of more than 65,500 primary meeting, convention and incentive travel decision-makers.
