our history

1957 – Take Off
The history of our activities dates back to 1957, when SAS established Take Off as a printed newsletter for travel agencies in Denmark.

In 1962, the newsletter was taken over by Danmarketing A/S and was developed into a genuine travel trade magazine. The ownership lasted until 1988, when Skandinavisk Bladforlag A/S took over – a company backed by travel insurance company Europaeiske.

From 2000 to 2001, Travelmarket Group was for a short period the majority owner of the media company, until a private group of investors took over the activities in 2001.

1982 – Stand By
In 1982, the travel industry magazine STAND BY was established by STAND BY Travel Trade Journal ApS. The company was merged into Stand By Publishing ApS in 1995 and established the online media in 1998.

In 2007, Standby Publishing ApS bought the shares in Skandinavisk Bladforlag A / S and thus took over the magazine Take Off and the online media, which had been established in 2000.

In 2010 the companies were reconstructed as Scandinavian Travel Media ApS with the print media Stand By and the online media, and

2010 –
In 2010, consultancy company Travelbroker Nordic established the online media, which was spun off into a separate company in 2012 with the name Travelmedia Nordic.

In 2017, the print media Stand By closed and the remaining activities in Scandinavian Travel Media ApS were merged into Travelmedia Nordic ApS with the online media, and and merged in 2018 and continued as, while first changed its name to and then was discontinued in the summer of 2019.

Today Travelmedia Nordic is publishing CHECK-IN.DK and STANDBY.DK as the leading digital travel trade media in Scandinavia.
