Roularta is committed to strong media brands and offers encouragement to advertisers
In just a few weeks, there have been immense changes in the world. Our society is being confronted with a global health crisis that is raising significant questions about our habits as citizens and consumers. In these uncertain times, people need high-quality, credible media more than ever and they are also taking more time than ever to read.
It is clear that Belgian consumers trust their local, high-quality media brands as a source of information and relaxation. Besides the strong figures for the print versions of our magazines, in terms of both individual sales and subscriptions, it is also striking that our media brands are experiencing a digital boost.
Media consumption gets an enormous boost
In these turbulent times, people need and consume qualitative and credible media more than ever before.
Roularta Media does not foresee any changes to the current circulation of its magazines: subscriptions will be distributed as usual (bpost stays active) and digital subscriptions remain stable. Bookshop sales are also maintained.

The special editions for the coming months are: Steps Gold, 16 May, Steps Staycation, 13 June, Steps Loving You, 5 September, Steps Living, 3 October and Steps Communie, 5 December.
