Publisher Letter – October 2019

Dear Readers,

If you’re a Concrete Decor subscriber, you’ll receive an entirely new online version of the magazine this month. We’re really pumped about the new online magazine because it creates an improved reader experience, one that complements the printed version. In fact, in some ways it’s even better!

The online magazine now scrolls through content and responds to the device you’re using to read it. Hold your smart phone vertically and it appears one way. Turn it horizontally and both ads and content will adjust. With the new format, you can enjoy the magazine’s content without having to zoom in and out.

There’s a Preview of each new issue appearing in the top left corner of www.ConcreteDecor.net for the general public but subscribers will receive the full version in their inbox before it’s available to anybody else. For those who subscribe to the print magazine, no worries! You’ll continue receiving this great magazine curbside.

The Concrete Decor Show is upon us. If you’re still thinking about buying a plane ticket so you can spend a few days with us, don’t hesitate any longer. Concrete Decor always delivers on education and the companies that exhibit here are companies who understand your needs as a decorative concrete professional. There are so many hidden gems situated throughout this event, you just need to be here to discover them. Not having the nonprofit workshops to concern myself with, I’ll be on the show floor eager to answer any questions and direct you to the best resources.

At the start of 2020, Concrete Decor begins to celebrate its 20th year. I’m amazed at how fast the time has passed but considering what’s happened in that time — along with how the industry is thriving today — I can only imagine an extraordinary road ahead for our industry.

This magazine, the Concrete Decor Show, the product manufacturers, supply stores, associations constantly pushing for better standards and, most importantly, you define this industry’s tomorrow. Enjoy this edition of Concrete Decor. An exciting year ahead awaits us. Let’s tackle it together.

Sincerely,

 

Bent Mikkelsen
