“NUVO was an amazing partner to work with on the Jaguar Land Rover Experience Tour. Not only does NUVO understand our brand, but they understand synergy. When working with NUVO, Jaguar Land Rover knows that there will be a personal, professional and purposeful touch behind each partnership NUVO facilitates.”
–Aleksandra Bulat, Jaguar Land Rover Events Specialist, Jaguar Land Rover Canada
“The relationship between NUVO and Salvatore Ferragamo is partnership at its best. They were instrumental in announcing our newly expanded location in Vancouver and was the ideal partner for our opening event, driving qualified individuals to our boutique with an exclusive evening that made a lasting impression on the city of Vancouver.”
–Pierre Goyenetche, Director of Marketing & Special Events, Ferragamo USA
“What is impressive is the response we got from our 400 plus customers who received a one-year subscription to NUVO as our way of saying thanks for their business. This initiative is, by far, the most successful marketing thing we’ve done so far if response by e-mail, cards, letters, and phone calls are any indication.”
–Helen Donovan, Kravet Canada

“NUVO is one of the few ‘targeted’ magazines I actually read cover-to-cover. Over the years, I consistently find the quality of the articles to be excellent and there is always something original and interesting to read. So it was no surprise that when we were ready to re-launch our Maserati ad campaign to reach out to our high-end clientele in Canada, we once again made a long-term commitment to NUVO.”
–Andrea Soriani, Director of Marketing Communications, Maserati North America
“I don’t know of a magazine that we are in that actually reaches the level of income that NUVO does. Certainly as a proportion of their overall circulation, I think NUVO probably does reach a higher percentage of the top income earners than any other magazine.”
–Victor Royce, CEO, Rolex Canada, quoted in Marketing, “The Luxe Approach” by Eve Lazarus
“NUVO is a magazine that has stood out in the Canadian media marketplace since its inception – no other publication can compare to NUVO’s in-depth stories, original photography and design. NUVO’s unique relationship with Canada’s most engaged and sophisticated influencers and luxury brands, made it the perfect event partner for the recent opening of our Pacific Center location in Vancouver, creating one of the most successful openings I’ve ever experienced.”
–Debra Margles, President, Michael Kors Canada
