Spot On Publications

Our background is in magazine publishing, but today we apply our storytelling and design skills to a wide range of print and digital communications.

Established in 1994 by award-winning journalist Chris Gaskell and his wife Dianne. Spot on Publications steadily grew to become one of New Zealand's largest specialist publishers, publishing magazines such as NZ Road Cyclist, NZ Mountain Biker, Fitness Life and V02 max to name a few.


In 2009 Spot Exhibitions was formed to start Auckland’s first and NZ’s largest motorhome expo based at the ASB Showgrounds in Greenlane each March.The show grew to be NZ’s largest and most successful motorhome expo which now attracts over 19,000 visitors with over 140 exhibitors filling 19,000m2 of exhibition space. This business was sold in late 2017.

We now specialise in publishing in the motorhome industry producing the magazines and publications on behalf NZ Motor Caravan Association including NZ’s largest circulating motorhome magazine The Motor Caravanner (circulation 44,000) and the extremely popular 320pp Travel Directory and app.
We handle the entire publishing process, from planning, researching and writing stories, to selling advertising space that can fund a publication; from designing each page to a specific, striking creative look, to proofing, printing and final distribution.


A more recent venture has seen the company also move into production of a motorhome TV show – RV Explorers with the first series currently in production and screening schedule for winter.
Spot On Publications is currently owned by founder Chris Gaskell and General Manager Brent Gillies.
