Cover story

A Valve World cover story offers a deep insight into the supply side of the flow control industry. Every issue, a supplier is given the opportunity to show the valve community his company and products with a four-page, full-colour article plus a photo on the magazine cover page. As a marketing mix of an editorial feature and an advertising campaign, the cover story therefore commands exceptional selling power. View an example (PDF-format).
