Magazines, company histories, directories, event programmes, annual reports, brochures, newsletters & more
MEP has produced a great number of magazines and other corporate material for 30 years — specialising in tourism, culture, environmental, and business publications. Here is a list of our current and recent titles, as well as a selection of past projects.
Caribbean Beat magazine
The Caribbean’s leading arts, culture, travel and leisure magazine
Published by MEP since 1992 as the in-flight magazine first for BWIA and then for Caribbean Airlines, Caribbean Beat is the Caribbean’s leading magazine on Caribbean arts, culture and society. The magazine marked its 25th anniversary with the March/April 2017 issue (#144), and the 150th issue in March/April 2018.
Caribbean Beat‘s mandate from inception was to get behind the familiar stereotypes of the Caribbean to show how rich Caribbean life really is — music, art, dance, books, sport, fashion, design, festivals, history, environment, people, lifestyle. As its publisher, we’ve valued and honoured this mandate for over a quarter century, making Caribbean Beat the only magazine of its kind, and an ongoing resource for students, researchers, and lovers of all things Caribbean.
In addition to its distribution on Caribbean Airlines planes and via print subscriptions, the magazine is also reproduced in full on the caribbean-beat.com website (including a near-complete digital archive of the magazine), and on MEP’s Issuu, Yumpu, and Magzter accounts.
Discover Trinidad & Tobago destination guide
The islands’ most trusted, longest-running, and most widely accessibly travel & visitor guide
Produced annually since 1991, Discover Trinidad and Tobago is the country’s major international promotional book, for both local and international visitors alike, and the island’s only truly cross-platform print and digital solution. Its light and portable format usually make it the only destination guide that local tourism authorities take overseas to major travel shows, fairs, and markets.
Discover T&T marked it 25th anniversary in 2016 with its 27th issue and the introduction of its new dual-cover design — flip it one way, you’re in Trinidad. Flip it another way, you’re in Tobago! The 2020 issue (issue 31) is the fifth straight dual-cover edition, where each island has its own distinct cover, and its own distinct content and design.
Discover is published each November, usually making its debut at the World Travel Market in London (UK) as part of the Trinidad & Tobago contingent. It is distributed free to local and international industry stakeholders; via a mobile app; and is also reproduced in full on the high-traffic discovertnt.com website, and on MEP’s Issuu, Yumpu, and Magzter accounts.
Parkite Sports magazine
In July 2019, the Queen’s Park Cricket Club (QPCC), in partnership with MEP Publishers, unveiled a refreshed and revamped Parkite Sports Magazine. This exciting rebrand establishes Parkite Sports as the premier sports magazine of, by, and for the Caribbean and its diaspora. Published quarterly, the magazine includes:
• Exclusive news & analysis: a must-read, engaging mix of feature stories, columns, reports and previews, exclusive commentary and analysis — plus all the latest critical info (trends, statistics, schedules, standings) about fans’ best-loved sports and players
• The local & international sports we love: top-notch coverage of local, regional, and international cricket, football, hockey, squash, basketball, tennis, mixed martial arts, athletics and more — plus practical health and fitness information
• A deeper look: in-depth profiles of both our own Caribbean sporting superstars and global sports icons, plus bold examination of the politics and infrastructure that govern and affect all sports.
CONTACT business magazine
MEP undertook a new partnership with The Trinidad & Tobago Chamber of Industry and Commerce in 2017 to revitalise and rebrand their iconic CONTACT magazine. The first issue (April 2018) was unveiled at the Chamber’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).
Our MEP team produced a new logo; a new layout and design; and a completely revamped and refreshed editorial approach for the Chamber’s flagship magazine. The feedback has been phenomenal.
The magazine leverages the Chamber’s and MEP’s powerful, diverse network and broaden the magazine’s distribution base of 5,000+ key corporate decision-makers, strategically communicating with local and international markets through hard copy and digital distribution of the magazine.
In publication since 2000, the magazine is a staple reading for the national business community as well as for overseas investors and other stakeholders beyond our shores. The magazine has a strong specialised thematic content, written and researched by respected business leaders and writers. Because of its focus, the publication has wide appeal, and is circulated to key executives and leaders in the business community, Government Ministries, diplomatic missions, tertiary educational institutions, libraries and business development institutions locally, regionally and internationally.
In the past, we have also published several magazines, brochures, company histories, annual reports, catalogues, directories, event programmes — both in house and for private clients, ranging from multi-national corporations and NGOs to local SMBs and individuals. Click here for more.
