Subject: Loipart catering news for Marine Catering Technology International?

 

Hello Mikael,

 

Sorry for the short notice

​, but I thought I'd go to you directly rather than looking for news on your website​

The next issue of Marine Catering Technology International (March 2017) will include a

​gain

'what's new' section at the front of the magazine, highlighting the latest new marine galley equipment and services.

 

I would like to invite you to contribute. We have an

​feature article

 about

​Tallink's Megastar

 in

​this issue and one of the pictures shows a Loipart Marine Salamander. Perhaps you could provide more information about the range of equipment supplied to this ship? If it was just the salamanders, how many, and in what way is it envisaged that they will assist in catering for the ship (if you know)? Or perhaps you could talk about another product or project?

 

Perhaps you have

 press release or short text about your latest new product or service, along with a few 300dpi images

​?​

 

This opportunity is COMPLETELY FREE OF CHARGE and is not dependent on advertising. 

 

All replies will be subject to editing, however we will endeavour to supply a preview prior to publication. 

 

We need your replies no later than Friday

 March 2016

​I will provide a proof pdf of the page before publication so you can check it.

 

If you have any questions, please get in touch. 

 

Kind regards,

 

Michael
