- Forbes announced today the launch of two new international print and online publications, Forbes Benelux and Forbes Monaco, in partnership with Vizio Publishing of Luxembourg. The Editor-in-Chief of both editions, Paul Trustfull, has served as Editor of Forbes Afrique previously and brings long-standing experience in working with Forbes Media to ensure the success of these international licensed editions.
Forbes Benelux will be published bi-monthly in English to start. In the future, it will also be made available in Dutch. Forbes Benelux will be edited in The Netherlands where it will be distributed as well as in Belgium and Luxembourg, with the initial launch in September 2018. Forbes Monaco, a new English language Monaco bi-monthly print and online edition, is scheduled to launch in June 2018. It will be accompanied by events and conferences to follow.
The editorial content of Forbes Benelux and Forbes Monaco will retain the editorial independence that Forbes is known for and will consist of local business news, commentary and features, as well as select editorial content from Forbes magazines from around the world.
“I feel honored to launch Forbes Benelux and Forbes Monaco. The prestige, economic weight and lifestyle attraction of these countries in Europe are a perfect match to the reputation and influence of the Forbes franchise,” said Pierre-Antoine Racine, President of Vizio Publishing. “Our readers are entrepreneurs with a regional and global mindset. We are convinced Forbes will bring synergies between its international contents and targeted local contributions, plus unique events and advertising opportunities. At a time when Benelux and Monaco want to change their image, aiming at becoming ethical and business leaders, I am convinced the new Forbes editions can become their media of choice to do so.
“We are excited to partner with Vizio Publishing to launch Forbes Benelux and Forbes Monaco. These editions establish our presence in key prestigious and economic European centers at a time of renewed excitement in the economy there” said Mike Federle, CEO of Forbes Media.
