Forbes to launch edition in France
Forbes announced plans Wednesday to launch a French edition of its business magazine in partnership with 360BusinessMedia.
The Forbes.fr website, which will feature content in French, is expected to launch first in the Fall of 2016, followed by related live events and a magazine supplement at a later date.
The content of Forbes.fr will consist of 70 percent French and European business news, commentary and features, and 30 percent editorial content from Forbes magazines from around the world.
“We’re excited about Forbes’ expansion into France, starting with the launch of Forbes.fr,” said Forbes Media chief operating officer Mike Federle, in a statement. “360BusinessMedia has achieved tremendous success in France, and we’re confident that the group will develop an important presence for Forbes.”
Forbes has three dozen international editions, including Africa, Argentina, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Israel, Kazakhstan, Korea, Middle East, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Turkey, and Ukraine.
