NewspaperDirect to Provide Newspapers and Magazines at the 2012 Summer Games in London

The countdown has started for the 2012 Summer Games in London and NewspaperDirect is ready for them!

In less than 40 days, hundreds of thousands of people from around the world will descend on London to cheer on the world’s greatest athletes as they compete for gold. International newspapers like yours will be in high demand as the media and athletes flock to read the latest stories from home.

NewspaperDirect will be there to ensure that the world’s publishers are able to include the latest news in their newspapers and magazines and that the many points of sales and readers have all the publications as soon as available.

What will NewspaperDirect offer?

NewspaperDirect will have full print and distribution operations in both secure and non-secure event venues. We will offer a number of printing formats, including original format offset printing and full colour large-scale digital production. Additionally, on-site cutsheet production will be available, giving publishers with later file delivery times the opportunity to provide Day-A content to the working media professionals and their national teams.

When will we be operational?

From July 13 through to September 22, 2012.
