Hamburg, 01 June 2008 – 'GEO India' Makes Its Debut Today

Today, Monday, marks the launch of "Geo India," published in partnership with India's Outlook Publishing Group. G+J's partner is the country's second-largest publisher, and does business in the magazine, book, online and events sector.

GEO India is published in English, based on GEO International's tremendously successful editorial and publishing concept. The new magazine's editor-in-chief is Kai Friese, an Indian journalist with German ancestors. At a cover price of around €1.50, GEO is positioned in the upscale segment of the Indian magazine market.

The reportage magazine GEO is now published in 20 countries.

André; Möllersmann, Director GEO International, said: "Gruner + Jahr's first step onto the Indian magazine market is also an important step for GEO. The fact that we now have an English-language edition of GEO International in our portfolio will further accelerate our continued internationalization. The first issue of GEO India already had excellent ad sales. We are confident that GEO will quickly become established among readers as well."

"Geo" is Gruner + Jahr's most international magazine brand. It currently appears in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and is published in regional versions in Bulgaria, Finland, France, Greece, Italy, Croatia, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Hungary, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – and now in India as well.
