New American Map-Langenscheidt Publishing Group Website Integrates the Largest Collection of Global Travel Guides, Maps, Atlases and Language Learning Products in the United States

LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire/ — The American Map- Langenscheidt Publishing Group, including Berlitz Publishing, announces the launch of its new website, comprising over 3,000 travel, language and reference titles. The new site, http://www.americanmap.com/, provides a one- stop shopping experience for virtually any destination in the U.S. or around the world. Geared towards helping Americans discover languages and destinations across the globe, the site allows travelers to navigate around the world in minutes.

“Our website is the global front door to all our market-leading brands – American Map, ADC Map, Arrow Map, Berlitz Publishing, Hagstrom Map, Hammond World Atlas, Insight Guides, and Langenscheidt Education,” said President Marc Jennings. “For the first time, our website positions American Map- Langenscheidt as America’s ultimate one-stop resource for all travelers’ needs including maps, atlases, travel guides, and bilingual phrasebooks and dictionaries, not to mention our full catalog of language-learning and educational products.

“Not only have we completely overhauled the look of the site, but we’ve made it easier to navigate and find exactly what you’re looking for, wherever you’re going,” Jennings continues. “Enter your destination and you will find a host of travel guides, maps, atlases and language learning books and audio titles to help you immerse yourself in the culture, sights and the language before, during and after your trip.” Visitors can find everything for their trip – a map, a guide, and a phrasebook – all on one site. In addition, visitors can read detailed information about American Map’s products, see cover images, hear audio clips, and “look inside” interior pages before buying.

Buying products on the site is easy and safe using VeriSign off-site credit approval and secure servers. Shipping is free with any order over $30. As an introductory offer, customers will receive 20% off their first order. This offer is good until December 31, 2005 (use code # cup20off).

“The initial response to the site has been tremendous in terms of customer response and in terms of ‘stickiness,’” said Jennings. “For example, customers stay on the site an average of eight minutes visiting multiple pages. Next we will be adding new U.S. and worldwide destinations, downloads, audio products and special promotions, some of them only available at www.americanmap.com.”
