Meet the Media: Marketing Magazine

Public relations and marketing practitioners who like to catch up with the latest marketing happenings, trends, insights and ideas across the region will be pleased to read Marketing as they see the relevant, valuable and interesting content. Suffice to say, it’s on their regular reading (RR) list!

What is the Marketing magazine?

Launched in early 2002, Marketing magazine is highly circulated (with a print readership of more than 100,000) and is so far the longest running trade publication in the Asia-Pacific, reaching out to all marketing and advertising related professionals.

Marketing magazine works in concert with its online e-newsletter Marketing Daily, its portal marketing-interactive.com and many live events. The publication has three key markets – Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia, and each market has fully staffed editorial operations, which gives them the reach and access to local markets that none of their competitors can match. In Hong Kong, this is even more pronounced where they have a bilingual publication and also host events in Cantonese.
