ITP Promedia launches WatchPro.com


March 19th, 2012

The only B2B website dedicated to delivering news, views and business trends for the British watch industry has now launched at watchpro.com.

ITP Promedia has been publishing WatchPro as a print magazine within sister title Professional Jeweller for more than a year now, but last month the magazine was launched as a fully standalone title.

Now ITP Promedia has launched WatchPro.com to support the monthly print magazine. Like sister site ProfessionalJeweller.com, WatchPro will deliver breaking news to for the watch industry with daily news alerts.

The WatchPro site is now live and daily news alerts will be starting up in the next week. To sign up for these essential daily news alerts all you have to do is enter your email address in the box on the WatchPro.com home page.

As of today, all watch stories previously covered by ProfessionalJeweller.com can be found on WatchPro.com, with ProfessionalJeweller.com now benefitting from a stronger focus on jewellery news.

WatchPro editor-in-chief Rachael Taylor said: “The splitting off of WatchPro to become a standalone magazine is long overdue. The UK watch industry has been asking for a publication dedicated solely to it for some time and we feel that this is the right moment to push forward with WatchPro and WatchPro.com.

“There are many fantastic consumer watch websites out there but WatchPro.com will bring a point of difference by not only covering products but also reporting on the businesses and the people that make the British watch industry tick. We have already proved just how powerful a tool our daily news alerts can be with ProfessionalJeweller.com and now we plan to make a similar impact in the watch industry with WatchPro.com.”

The WatchPro editorial team will be headed up by Taylor and supported by deputy editor Kathryn Bishop. The commercial team will be led by Andrew Martyniuk as commercial manager with Daniel Malins working on the team as sales executive.
