LCT Publishes First 2013 Issue. . .

Posted on January 9, 2013 by - Also by this author

THAT WOULD BE JANUARY: LCT Magazine publishes Volume 31, No. 1, the first issue of our 30th anniversary year. The actual anniversary issue will be published next month with an exclusive sneak-peek distribution on Feb. 5 on the International LCT Show Floor at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

For January, our main cover feature is a profile of Quality Coachworks, an exceptional coachbuilder based in Ontario, Calif., that has defied the odds by launching just before the Great Recession, and succeeding in a challenging global market. Owner and founder and limo designer Dominick Vitelli graces our cover and tells his inside story of how he became a limousine perfectionist. His slogan is to simply say, Yes. He will build anything the customer wants, and track down any part the vehicle needs. We enjoyed our visit and tour of his company, especially the fact that it is a family-owned and run business with a welcoming and genuine vibe, not to mention an active, organized production floor with a wide vareity of chauffeured vehicle in various stages of development. 

2013 not only marks a milestone year for LCT Magazine but a new chapter as we return to 12 annual issues and bring back an East Coast trade show to Atlantic City, N.J., Publisher Sara Eastwood-McLean explains in the latest Publisher's Page. With recent developments, LCT Magazine now offers the most complete and comprehensive B2B content venue, trade show marketplaces, and advertising/ marketing/exhibit opportunities.

Elsewhere in the issue, and to be posted at this month: A client progress report on the 2013 Cadillac XTS sedan, a gallery of 2013 chauffeured vehicle models and preview of Show floor vehicles, and some networking-for-business tips from a veteran operator and LCT contributor. And once again, don't forget our mega-30th anniversary issue coming in February. -- Martin Romjue, LCT editor
