Optimise your marketing campaign by advertising in LAPV and on LAPV.co.uk

Published:  13 February, 2012

LAPV is read by Fleet, Plant and Waste Managers working within Local Authorities who are all under huge amounts of pressure. Not only do they have to provide higher service levels to the public but they have to do so at a time of unprecedented budget cuts.

Editor's statement

Budgets are tight and staffing levels are under constant scrutiny yet Key Performance Indicators still have to be met. This is the challenging environment in which LAPV operates.

The publication is unique in its exclusive focus on this sector with dedicated editorial designed to help readers find solutions. A combination of high editorial standards, input from industry experts and independent articles by top writers ensures that the latest technological advances are covered.

LAPV combines journalistic integrity with commercial interest of our advertisers that allows us to offer newsworthy stories, case studies, reports and comprehensive vehicle tests to the industry.

"Advertising in LAPV has allowed Scarab Sweepers to increase awareness for our products in front of key local authority specifiers. Its circulation and editorial style ensure that we can convey our marketing message succinctly and with minimal wastage."
