Forbes Announces Croatia Magazine Launch for November 2008
Forbes announced this week its expansion into Croatia with the launch of its ninth local-language edition, Forbes Croatia. The magazine will be published in partnership with Europapress Holding in Croatia, with Europapress having secure the licensing deal to publish an edition of the magazine in four countries: Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro. The initial launch will be in Croatia with a print run of 24,000 to be distributed in major regional cities.
“The initial launch of Forbes Croatia is targeted at meeting the needs of the nation’s domestic media market, which for some time has been lacking a reliable, analytical and quality business magazine,” says Nino Pavic, chairman of Europapress Holding. “With the elements associated with the Forbes brand, choosing it seemed like the only correct option.”
Europapress is home to more than 30 publications now, establishing it as the largest multimedia-publishing house in Croatia. It annually publishes more than 117 million copies of print issues.
