Welcome to the Licensing page here on Futurenet. Future is currently the UK’s most successful consumer magazine publisher in the international licensing arena, counting 136 licenses with 52 partner companies in 31 different countries. Future’s international licensing business is key to the company’s core strategy of overseas development and, like our magazines, is based on the cornerstones of innovation, passion, and customer focus.
Dedicated to technology and lifestyle-based subject matter, our titles are easily transferable to overseas markets. All of them are underpinned by our enthusiasm and passion for magazines, magazines that attract sophisticated, loyal readers through their editorial excellence and high production values. In addition to the best magazines possible, we are committed to delivering the best service possible to our customers. Becoming a partner brings instant benefits for both publishers and for your readers.
Customer service – we have invested in experienced publishing professionals for our licensing team who are dedicated exclusively to dealing without publishing partners’ requirements. High-speed content delivery – we are the first publishing company in the UK to offer a comprehensive system including copyright, low and hi-res files, templates, and regular graphics delivered via the Internet. What this means for our partners is the best news, reviews and interviews are available as soon as they are authorized here in the UK, offering significant savings in getting to the newsstand first.
Future International Conferences – bi-annual opportunities to find out what the major industry players are thinking, how Future plans to respond, and, most importantly, a fantastic chance to work with colleagues from around the world. Training and development – individually tailored UK-based editor and publisher trips to assist in building a close team co-operation that overcomes distance International media and publisher packs – high-resolution PDF and InDesign files with media packs exclusively created for our international partners to assist them with more successful ad sales.
An agreed program of visits to discuss the progress, any further needs and, of course, to build professional relations with the partners. I hope you will agree that Future is doing much to bring publishers closer together, to build relationships that strengthen all of our businesses. If you would like to join one of our networks, please contact the international licensing team. We would be delighted to speak with you.
