Grazia, launched in China in February 2009, celebrated its third anniversary with a record issue in terms of advertising sales: on the cover an exclusive feature on the three most famous Chinese top models, produced in New York during the fashion week.
This performance is confirmation of the success of the Grazia brand in China, where the magazine is the most widely sold international glossy magazine, with sales of 1,162,000 per issue and double-digit growth rate in Q4 2011 in all of the cities in the country, from Shanghai to Beijing, Guangzhou and Hangzhou.
Grazia in China, which is the result of a unique and increasingly appreciated editorial formula, both by readers and advertisers, provides a diversified communication platform that includes a web site www.grazia.com.cn, which already has 1.8 unique users, the launch in April of an iPad version, events across the country such as “Fashion Class” and successful editorial supplements, including Grazia Men.
“This is the dynamic that Grazia is contributing to Mondadori’s development strategy in China, a country where we expect to develop other new business opportunities soon,” ha declared Fabrizio Lo Cicero, chairman of the Chinese joint-venture between the SEEC Group and Mondadori.
The Mondadori Group also works with other local partners in the country for the publication of Casaviva and Science et Vie.
