(Nikkei BP Group)
(No.1 High-Tech News Site in Japanese)
Nikkei Business Publications (known better in Japan as Nikkei BP) covers a wide variety of specialized areas including business, computer, electronics, construction, services and medicine. With our reputation as the number one business publisher in Japan, we have also been expanding into the consumer field over the past several years with much success. Through our 38 magazines and 4 newsletters, we reach a combined readership of over 2.3 million and our annual magazine circulation exceeds 43 million. The circulations of our magazines are audited by Japan Audit Bureau of Circulations, although the practice of circulation audit has yet to take root in the Japanese publishing industry.|
Most of our business titles are sold through annual subscription only, which makes it possible for our editors to maintain a clear picture of the profiles and needs of their readers. And the fact that we know who our readers are makes our magazines excel their rivals as quality advertising media. With the aim of contributing to the growth and expansion of business-to-business advertisements, we established the annual "Nikkei BP Advertising Awards" four years ago.
Our corporate philosophy is to provide the most accurate and vital information for the technology and business executive. To this end, almost all the articles that appear in our publications are researched and written by over 600 technically proficient staff writers of our own. No other publishing house in the world has as many in-house writers as we do. In order to collect information on a global basis, we have editorial offices in London, New York, Silicon Valley and Hong Kong.
Apart from magazines and newsletters, we also publish books and directories. We are also a strong player in the field of electronic and multimedia publishing. And with the aim of complementing our publishing activities, we organize a variety of trade exhibitions and industry seminars. High technology research and consultation services, which we offer at our Consulting Group, are a comparatively new business field for us.
