THE FANFARE STORY

PROVIDING READERS WITH THE BEST OF THE CITY

Fanfare Magazine Group was founded in 1984 by Brad Hughes, who was joined in the business by partner and wife Laurie Hughes in 1989. From its beginning the company has had a simple one-sentence mission statement: to promote the best places in Winnipeg. That mission statement has inspired the development of all the targeted publications in the Fanfare portfolio.

In 1997 Fanfare launched Ciao! to celebrate the food, chefs, and restaurants of the region. Top local chefs and restaurateurs subsequently joined with Ciao! to create the Cuisine Tourism Council of Manitoba to develop cuisine as a tourism draw. The Council launched Good Food Manitoba in September 2000 to celebrate regional and seasonal food.
The latest issue of Ciao! is available at specialty food and
wine stores in Winnipeg. For a location nearest you, go to

Guests in city hotels find WHERE in their rooms and many read it to plan their stay in Winnipeg. Some are from small Manitoba towns while others are from large American cities, but what all readers have in common is a desire to dine, shop and explore. They are only here for a short time, less than three days, and will respond immediately to the advertising they see in WHERE.
