NEW YORK, NY (March 21, 2016) — Robb Report, the leading voice in luxury, has announced the launch of Robb Report Germany in partnership with publishing house JAHRESZEITEN VERLAG.
JAHRESZEITEN VERLAG, the acclaimed publisher of premium magazines in Germany including A&W Architektur & Wohnen, DER FEINSCHMECKER and MERIAN, will serve as publisher of Robb Report Germany, as well as handle all sales and distribution for the German-language licensed version of Robb Report. Brand marketing will be managed by BM BRAND MEDIA.
The first edition of Robb Report Germany will hit newsstands October 2016, with a circulation of 100,000 copies. Robb Report – which is celebrating a milestone 40th anniversary this year, currently has 14 international editions around the world. Robb Report Germany will mark the luxury media brand’s 15th international edition.
“Germany has been at the forefront of Robb Report’s international priorities for a while as the country is home to a burgeoning affluent demographic that appreciates the Robb Report lifestyle – a celebration and passion for the best of the best,” says Stephen Colvin, CEO of Robb Report Media. “Once conversations were initiated with the publishing professionals at JAHRESZEITEN VERLAG, we knew we had found a partner that understood the Robb Report brand aesthetic and essence, and could properly, and flawlessly, curate our unique content and tone for Germany’s audience of discerning consumers.”
Peter Rensmann, JAHRESZEITEN VERLAG Managing Director says “Until now, Germany has not had a luxury magazine covering multiple subjects. But it does have a large and significant target group of educated people with strong purchasing power that enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle and the beautiful things in life. They are looking for inspiration, entertainment and expert advice. Robb Report is filling this gap in the market by offering its readers the best of the best in every respect. Furthermore, we plan to launch the brand website the same day the magazine hits newsstands, ensuring that Robb Report Germany is holistic and interconnected across platform and medium.”
