Today Alphabet Media does a lot of things – but once upon a time we just did one thing: publishing. Back in 2003 we launched the online version of what became FutureGov magazine, and now we have the Asia Pacific regional edition (in print, and online) – FutureGov Asia Pacific – as well as separate Yearbooks for each of the key markets we operate in.
These magazines are highly regarded – both by our readers, and by the region’s magazine publishing industry (we’ve won five industry awards, including three Asian Publishing Awards – and we’re hoping to add to the collection).
Our publishing team has many years of experience – let’s not embarrass them by saying how many – in journalism, and also in technology, research and working in the public sector itself. These 'grey beards’ are complemented by a group of bright young things – ensuring that our coverage is both dynamic, and balanced. In addition to the expertise we’ve developed internally, we regularly find space for senior officials to contribute opinion pieces of their own – and in so doing, create a common space for the region’s public sector to share with, and learn from, one another.
These magazines are also effective platforms for solutions providers looking to reach out and educate our subscriber audience of top administrators. Because we take great pains to be an honest broker, we have no axe to grind, and choose only to celebrate the successes of the region’s government, education and healthcare administrators. This provides the perfect environment for companies to engage with our readers.
Finally, the same skills we use to publish the award-winning editions of FutureGov magazine, are also put to good use putting together private custom publications and publishing solutions for the likes of Microsoft, Visa, SAP, ESRI, BlackBerry and NEC.
