Welcome to the first edition of NOVO! NOVO is a thrilling step forward in the evolution of this publication, designed to continue informing our readers about the latest trends in consumer electronics. Along with the new name, NOVO will offer more technology content, an expanded distribution and a fresh new look. Let me fill you in on exactly what you can expect moving forward, in case you didn't get a chance to read my "CANADA HiFi Will Become NOVO Magazine This Fall" article in the last issue (now online at www.novo.press).
NOVO will be launched officially at the upcoming TAVES Consumer Electronics Show (Oct. 28 to Oct. 30) in Richmond Hill, Ontario. The new branding will bring a fresh new look and style to audio video content and expand its reach into new realms.
NOVO will introduce you to a curated mix of hifi, home theater, technology and lifestyle topics. If you've enjoyed the hifi and home theatre content that our publication has delivered over the years, don't worry because NOVO will bring you all that and more in a more focused and refined fashion. You'll find even more hifi and home theatre articles per issue, with each being more concise and to the point, with less technical jargon, just what today's readers desire. Equally as important, every issue of NOVO will serve up exciting technology and lifestyle content that we're sure you will enjoy, whether you are a seasoned or new enthusiast. This expanded content will cover topics such as tech toys, robotics, virtual & augmented reality, 3D printing, home design, etc.
Our unique, free distribution model will be expanded to furniture stores, home & lighting stores, car dealerships, and even some universities and colleges. So you'll be able to find NOVO in more places and we expect to reach the hands of tens of thousands of readers, like no other traditional hifi magazine can. This formula has proven itself successful with the TAVES Consumer Electronics Show, which has made it the largest of its kind in Canada and among the top in North America.
Why the name NOVO? It's a derivation of the Latin word Nova, meaning new, which is exactly what it is. The publication will bring new insight, new products and new interests to consumers. The simplicity of the name makes it more stylish but also its uniqueness will build curiosity, inspiring consumers to explore its pages. In addition, NOVO is a name that knows no national boundaries, engendering worldwide appeal.
I would like to thank you for reading this publication over the years and warmly welcome you to continue with us, as we embark on this amazing new adventure!
