    Why ADAC Motorwelt?

  • The new quality promise ADAC Motorwelt has opted for a totally new level of quality with the new concept. The readers expect a qualitatively improved magazine format (paper quality and adhesive binding), an opulent visual language, a wide variety of topics and a new ad concept with a focus on image-based ads. The very positive initial market research results clearly demonstrate that this is the right direction.
  • The strengths of the new sales concept We are also heading in a fresh direction with the new sales concept using EDEKA and Netto supermarkets. This means in future, ADAC members will be reached in their day-to-day lives across almost all of Germany. The figures speak for themselves: 12.9 million ADAC members have already done their main shopping at EDEKA or Netto supermarkets in the last three months. An added bonus is that this sales concept will mean future ADAC Motorwelt readers will make the conscious decision to pick up a magazine, meaning a strong interaction with the new magazine is to be expected.
  • A wide range of topics and recurring exciting sections offer almost every industry the right environment for your brand communication.
