Our Editorial Calendar will remain the 4-quarter system focused on the categories listed below. We feel this is working and encourage companies and PR agencies to get familiar with the season variations and the annual conferences and events Architosh covers in the CAD and 3D industries. Contacting us early is highly advisable; planning editorial features and advertising campaigns around key announcements such as new software releases, introductions, updates and event news take careful planning.
Bear in mind our editorial calendar is not rigid. We publish all types of content year-around, even outside our quarterly focus topics to meet the needs of our corporate sponsors (advertisers).

Generally speaking, we start to plan our main features for any particular quarter approximately one to two quarters prior to it. However, that is the ideal and often times schedules slip or new items come up that we fit into a calendar focus. For best results please consider these helpful notes:
- Contact us early for software product reviews (at least 2-4 months prior to publication date)
- Contact us early also for big events, major announcements, et cetera
- Contact us one month early for executive interviews
For broad editorial and coordinated advertising-planning, we encourage you to contact us any time of the year to discuss your needs. The same goes for company-based media (press) events. If you would like us to cover your media needs at an event that we don’t have on our Editorial Calendar, please contact us at [email protected]
