Our history in brief



TRBusiness magazine, founded in 1997, is the genuine leading monthly title for the duty free/travel retail industry. With Managing Editor Charlotte Turner at the helm, TRBusiness magazine prides itself on its no-nonsense analysis and interpretation of global industry events as they happen. Our experienced editorial team reports the news in a creative, easy-to-read style for both mother tongue and international English-speaking readers.


TRBusiness, is also independent. Doug Newhouse, [former] Editorial Director; Nigel Hardy, International Sales & Marketing Director; and Janice Hook, Financial Director successfully completed a management buy out of the company in July 2004.


‘Hard, factual and timely information’

TRBusiness has been likened to ‘The Economist’ or ‘International Herald Tribune’ for this industry. Today’s busy executive does not have time to wade through numerous product-orientated magazines that land on their desks each month.


They require hard, factual and timely information, plus succinct, informed interpretation of market sector moves and development–rather than lengthy and inconclusive articles on products.


TRBusiness magazine is ‘one-stop reading’ for the industry’s top decision makers and it is also the biggest provider of news, commentary and analysis.


The magazine publishes 12 monthly issues (timed to appear at the end of each month, or at the start of a trade exhibition, or conference) for the industry’s key executives and decision makers.


In addition, the October TFWA Cannes show issue is accompanied each year by our critically acclaimed and unique ‘The World’s Top 10 Operators Report’ report.


TRBusiness magazine is the highest producer of printed editorial pages amongst all the other trade magazines. It also offers the greatest volume of quality information for an industry reliant on facts, data and opinion. We also invest in the highest-quality paper of any trade publication, delivering the very best reproduction.
