WALLS&ROOFS in Africa’s subscriptions have grown with almost 50% since the same time last year, confirmed by an audit by South Africa’ Audit Bureau of Circulations (abc).

Media in Africa might soon have to start printing more copies of WALLS&ROOFS in Africa magazine, with its subscriptions continuing to grow, year on year.

Following the latest audit by South Africa’s Audit Bureau of Circulations (abc), confirmed subscriptions for the magazine now stand at a total of 16 983, up almost 50% from the same time last year. The magazine’s subscriptions have grown with a whopping 5 618 since the middle 2015, when the monthly average was at 11 365.

This figure is impressive, especially considering the magazine’s niche target market of built environment professionals. These include architects, designers, specifiers, quantity surveyors, property developers and more.

According to Marlene van Rooyen, editor and business unit manager of WALLS&ROOFS, this achievement yet again confirms the magazine’s stature in the built environment. “We put the magazine in front of our readers and engage with them both on personal levels as well as through our roadshows and CPD events to find out what it is they want to get out of the magazine,” she states.

Part of the Media in Africa stable, WALLS&ROOFS has served professionals in the built environment for the last 16 years, providing excellent, unbiased, technical content and design inspiration that narrows the gap between suppliers, service providers and clients.

“Staying abreast of industry and media trends, we are continuously adapting to the times and looking at ways to serve the industry. We do this through the print magazine, but also our expanding digital profiles, to provide an all-round experience and cater for different preferences,” Van Rooyen adds.

“This amazing growth over the last year confirms that the magazine is succeeding in bringing key information to architects, designers, specifiers and other trade professionals, a key objective that we stay committed to.”
