IPC Media’s International department, part of the licensing and syndication division IPC Plus, has announced the launch of an Indonesian edition of Livingetc – Britain’s best-selling modern homes magazine.
The Indonesian edition – the second international launch of the magazine this year – will be published under license agreement by Tiga Visi Utama, which already publishes Inspired Kids magazine, and is part of the Milestone Pacific Group.
The Indonesian version of Livingetc is the fourth international venture of the fast-growing international home interest title, with editions also in Thailand, Cyprus and most recently India.
IPC Media’s international publisher Siriliya Nawalkar says: “Livingetc continues to prove itself as an international brand and we’re delighted to be working with Milestone Pacific Group, whose business expertise in the region makes them the perfect partner to take the magazine to further success.”
Yvonne Ramsden, publishing director of Livingetc UK, says: “We’re excited to be working with Tiga Visi Utama for the launch of Livingetc in Indonesia. The magazine has already proven to be a must-have brand for modern homes enthusiasts in the UK and I believe Tiga Visi Utama is the perfect partner to take the magazine to success in Indonesia.”
Denise Tjokrosaputro, managing director of Livingetc Indonedia, says: “We are very excited that Livingetc is now available as an Indonesian edition. As the first interior magazine dedicated to modern homes, Livingetc Indonesia is poised to be the leader in its market, catering to the large and growing number of young affluent readers of the country.” The first edition of Livingetc hits Indonesian newsstands November 5, priced 55,000 Rupiah. The first three issues will be bi-monthly, moving to a monthly frequency in May 2010.
