To assist in forward planning and to capitalise on such events Newspro Retail Group has produced an Annual Events Calendar. By highlighting key events and sales periods throughout the year it allows you to identify and be ready to make the most of these opportunities and act as a reminder in your busy schedule.

In addition to national events, there may be local events that are key to your individual sales. The events calendar allows you to record these for reference. This will assist in planning and capitalising on these events in the future.

  • Plan ahead – Remember that monthly magazines are dated ahead, especially important at Christmas.
  • Secure your required copy in advance with your wholesaler.
