Factory announce What’s On tender win.

The market leading tourist publication will now be produced at Factory from March 2017

Factory is proud to announce today that we have been awarded the tender for the development of Jersey’s What’s On tourist publication and App for the next three years by Visit Jersey. We look forward to developing the well known name in a new format, creating a new pocketable, convenient and quality offering for Jersey’s visitors to be retained throughout their stay and beyond.

Although we have published media in Jersey under Gallery, Places, Appetite, Direction and other brands for 12 years we have not, to date, applied our local publishing experience to a publication aimed directly at visitors. As keen consumers of tourist related publications and platforms around the world, we love a great tourist guide and feel that What’s On has great potential. By combining essential content and event listings with engaging features and a map, we plan to develop it into a best in class title. Published throughout the year with a new focus on the seasons and quarterly campaigns, What’s On will retain a high print run and wide distribution, built on the requirements set in previous years but with a more focused, curated approach to the guide.

How did this all start?

The company was established to fill a hole in Jersey’s media landscape. The mission was to simply improve the offering available in the lifestyle sector for locals and visitors alike.

We’ve been about.

We established Gallery in 2004, producing 10,000 editions a month and, through a quality over quantity approach, have outlived many competitors in the advertising funded publication sector and added a new title to the suite on average every 2 years. Now catering to lifestyle, property, foodie, careers, charity, retail and wellbeing, we’re constantly evolving.

Are we any good?

We’re proud to have won every award we’ve entered, including a CIM’s Best Brand and Marketing Excellence award along with Best Small Business at the Jersey Enterprise Awards.
