Our international magazines

International Magazine

Elle Thailand

Post International Media Company Limited launched Elle Thailand, its first, now iconic, fashion magazine back in 1994. The glossy publication has stayed at the forefront of the fashion industry for over 25 years.

Going forward, Elle Thailand has embarked on a 360-degree content platform blending offline and online experience for a fuller brand experience. Events and digital media have been enhanced to accommodate growing demands from readers and consumers.

In 2019, Elle Thailand created buzz from its cover shoot in Paris and reaped 30-million baht in digital revenue gained from various content formats and channels, be they the website, video channel or social media. The magazine also ventured into collaborative projects with many world-renowned brands.

The annual ELLE Fashion Week 2019 ran for four days with eight shows from ten designers. The “25x25 shows” were considered the opening of a new chapter in the fashion business with 25 collections from legendary Thai designers being displayed alongside 25 counterparts from a new generation of designers. It was a fitting grand opening for the famed event.

Apart from fashion, Elle Thailand moved ahead with its beauty campaigns. The highlight was “ELLE Thailand Beauty Awards 2019” in which the best beauty products were carefully selected by committees of experts and other users. The awards have been well recognised by readers and the general public as well as leading beauty brands.

In terms of lifestyle, Elle Thailand was entrusted by the Department of International Trade Promotion, Ministry of Commerce, to organise “STYLE Bangkok 2019”, the largest lifestyle and design trade show in Southeast Asia. The event combined fashion and leather shows, gifts and houseware plus a furniture exhibition.

For 2020, Elle Thailand aims to reinforce its leadership in the fields of fashion and beauty with quality content sourced locally as well as globally. We seek to inspire our audience. Most of all, we will be working towards empowering and supporting Thai women to realise their full potential.

To bolster our content leadership, a new platform – ELLE IDOL – will be available for fans to get closer to their favourite artists through mobile applications. Elle Thailand will also continue to expand its subscription base to reach new generations.

Aprolonged economic slowdown saw more print media outlets, especially magazines, closing down or shifting exclusively to online last year. However, Forbes Thailand is still buoyant, both in print and online. Forbes Thailand website continues to grow in popularity in line with a shift in the reading behaviour of consumers.

After six years, Forbes Thailand received a warm reception from a new generation of business people. They recognised Forbes Thailand as the leading business and economic magazine providing insights and inspiration.

Starting 31 January 2019, Forbes Thailand joined hands with TISCO Wealth to present “TISCO Wealth & Forbes Thailand Dinner Talk” at the Grand Hall of The Athenee: A Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok. The event presented a perfect combination of knowledge and entertainment.

Cleo Thailand

Later, as digital technology permeated the business world, especially the print media industry, Cleo Thailand saw an opportunity for change by inviting readers into the infinite and fast digital world. While continuing to develop new content to satisfy the demands of smartphone and digital readers, Cleo Thailand still preserved its original identity, leading to more engagement, subscribers, likes and shares.
