Nikkei BP is expanding its global reach on the back of strong overseas networks, while organizing specialized events actively around the world. Our international editorial teams are based in New York, London, Shanghai and Hong Kong, and our affiliates are located in Asia, China and Europe to promote sales in the respective regions.
In June 2014, we acquired the Turkish publisher Mutlu Dergi Grubu A.S. (MDG) and established NIKKEI-Mutlu Dergi Grubu A.S. (Nikkei MDG). This is part of our plan to roll out cross-media projects in the Turkish market, as we have done in Japan over the past years.
Nikkei BP hosts a broad range of events in the Asia region, focusing on specialized topics in business management, IT, electronics, machinery and other professional fields where we have earned successful results in Japan. These events also provide opportunities for Japanese businesses eyeing to expand in the region. In 2014, we organized such events in China, Taiwan, Thailand, India, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam and other parts of Asia.
Moreover, our industry-focused websites deliver news from Japan in multiple languages for non-Japanese readers. One of those websites is Nikkei Technology Online, covering new developments in technology for Chinese engineers. The contents translated in Chinese are selected from the original Japanese edition of Nikkei Technology Online and updated daily to follow latest trends in technologies and markets of the electronics and machinery fields, together with news on key exhibitions and academic meetings held around the world.
Many of Nikkei BP's B-to-B magazines utilize the cutting-edge information provided by leading overseas magazines and newspapers. Presently, we partner with numerous titles worldwide, including Bloomberg Businessweek, Financial Times, Caixin of China, Business Today of India, and many more in highly specialized fields of IT and healthcare.
The network of our four sales offices and four editorial bureaus across the world, combined with these partnerships, further adds depth to the news and analyses that Nikkei BP offers to the readers.
Meanwhile, Nikkei BP is taking an active approach for its magazine and book contents to be published in overseas. We have concluded content licensing agreements with several publishers in China, Taiwan and South Korea, and provide the editorial contents from our brands including Nikkei Business, Nikkei Electronics, Nikkei Money, Nikkei Biotechnology & Business for local magazines and websites.
Covering various topics ranging from management, personal development, IT, medicine, architecture and health, Nikkei BP books translated in foreign languages have been published across Southeast Asia including Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam as well as China, Taiwan and South Korea. For 2014 alone, we have concluded successful licensing deals for 100 new books, and so far, have signed on such agreements for a total of nearly 500 titles since 2002.
