Forbes Australia launching in 2022 : Big things planned for Down Under edition

SINGAPORE – Forbes announced today the signing of a licensing agreement with Success Publishing Pty Ltd to launch Forbes Australia. Forbes Australia will commence sometime in 2022 across multiple platforms including digital, magazine, conferences and events.

As an extension of the world’s biggest business media brand, Forbes Australia will be a premier platform for entrepreneurial success. With a presence across multiple channels and touchpoints, Forbes Australia will ignite conversations around some of the most influential Australian leaders and entrepreneurs who are driving change, transforming business and making a significant impact on the world.

Forbes Australia will have access to Forbes stories from around the world, and will also feature local content from the Forbes Australia editorial team.

“Success Publishing is excited and honored to bring Forbes Australia to our shores,” said Michael Lane, Managing Director of Success Global Media. “Forbes Australia’s mission will be to champion and connect with Australian entrepreneurs across multiple platforms. Delivering content that matters, the local edition will cover the most influential leaders transforming the landscape of business in Australia, today and into the future.”

“Over the years, Forbes has shined a light on entrepreneurs and business leaders in Australia through our various lists, like 30 Under 30, and global coverage,” said Peter Hung, President of Forbes. “Launching an Australian edition of Forbes will allow us to develop an even deeper connection to the business community and audiences in Australia.”

The launch of Forbes Australia is a sign of Forbes’ continued global expansion. Overall, Forbes has 44 licensed editions in 77 countries. Forbes’ presence in the Asia Pacific region also includes Forbes Asia and eight local licensed editions: Forbes China, Forbes India, Forbes Indonesia, Forbes Japan, Forbes Korea, Forbes Mongolia, Forbes Thailand and Forbes Vietnam.
