A personal note from Phil Latz, Publisher of The Latz Report.
Way back in 1996 when I created the first Bicycling YearBook, I had no idea how quickly this annual trade directory would be embraced by Australian bicycle retailers. After selling the Bicycling Australia group, which included the Bicycling YearBook, to Yaffa Media in 2014, they have continued publishing the YearBook every year until 2019, but recently announced that they would not be continuing in 2020.
After asking a wide range of wholesalers and retailers for their opinion and receiving a strongly positive response, I’ve decided to publish The Latz Report YearBook 2020 which I hope will be the first of a long annual series. Retailers won’t have to pay for their copies. It will be posted to all Australian bicycle trade members free of charge.
There is still strong demand for a print version of the YearBook, that retailers can quickly thumb through at any time. But to maximise the YearBook’s effectiveness, from this year forward it will also be available online via a new page within The Latz Report website.
So you’ll be able to access The Latz Report YearBook 2020 via any device, anywhere, any time.
We’re aiming to have both print and online versions available from late May. But because of the crazy, unprecedented times we’re currently living in, we might need to push this date back depending upon a number of covid-19 related factors beyond our control.
If you’re a wholesaler you should have just received an email from us asking you to update your listing. Every wholesaler can list every product and brand, free of charge.
