By Matthew Knott, News Editor of StudyTravel Magazine



As you will no doubt have noticed by now from our news this week and from the latest issue of the magazine, Hothouse Media has rebranded as StudyTravel Ltd.

The primary purpose of the rebrand is to gather the company’s products under one umbrella as a cohesive group and to better encapsulate what the company does and the industry it services.

Thus these products will be known as StudyTravel Magazine, StudyTravel Alphe Conferences and StudyTravel Star Awards.

It is important to reiterate that we are all still the same team, doing the same roles in the same office and pursuing the same goal: to be the essential business tool for study travel professionals.

As our new tagline succinctly states: ‘Everything StudyTravel all in one place.’

And so talking of ST Alphe Conference and the ST Star Awards, that thrilling time of year is upon us again! As I write this, the conference team are a hive of activity preparing for the arrival of hundreds of educators and agents for our flagship UK conference: the beginning of the marketing season for the industry and always a frenetic reminder of the scale, breadth and inherent sociability of study travel.

I look forward to meeting both groups of delegates over the three days of the conference. Do please come and visit the StudyTravel Magazine booth (table 227) near the reception desk, where the editorial team will be out in force.

Tell us your news, have a look at the latest issue of the magazine – the first edition with the fine new livery of the rebrand – and share your thoughts on the industry, we’d love to speak to you.

And at the heart of the conference is the ST Star Awards 2015 ceremony, the unique, peer-voted recognition of excellence in performance in the study travel sector, and the night when the industry gathers to let its hair down.

My tuxedo is ready, I’ve lost count of how many new frocks have been delivered to the StudyTravel office in the past weeks, and there is even a kilt being threatened! The ST team is set to party, and we look forward to seeing everybody dressed up and prepared to do the same.

And, of course, all the best to this year’s nominees! Let’s celebrate StudyTravel style…
