The New Year brings new and refreshed content to the pages of Global Traveler. We’ve honed our focus to zero in on the topics, ideas and information of interest to today’s luxury business travelers, many of the changes a direct result of feedback from our loyal readers.
Beginning in this issue, we bring you some brand-new columns — Cruising, a report on the latest ships and innovations; and Drives, a guide to scenic routes and racecar-worthy roadways around the world. We’ve also refreshed some of our most popular pages. Cuisine becomes Food, an up-close look at some of the world’s most iconic national dishes. Calendar becomes Events, a more in-depth preview of an upcoming happening. And with meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions business booming on a worldwide scale, we’ve added a regular MICE feature.
In our destination coverage, we’ve added Neighborhoods, an insider’s guide to a single community in some of the world’s busiest urban centers. We’ve also fine-tuned a couple of regular features, with Add-On offering suggestions for business travelers who choose to extend their experiences beyond the boardroom and Business Plus focusing on dual itineraries for business travelers accompanied by friends or family.
The overall result is a new and improved Global Traveler. Let us know what you think.
