Marketing magazine places SCMP top for the second year running as Newspaper of the Year, and The Peak third in Luxury publications

Marketing magazine's Media Report 2017 has named the SCMP, Hong Kong’s longest-running English-language newspaper, as its Newspaper of the Year 2017. This is the second straight year SCMP has been selected for the top rank. Marketing attributes SCMP’s leadership position to broad print readership, and notes the hugely popular paywall-free draws millions of monthly page views from Hong Kong, Asia, the United States, Europe and the rest of world. In other print formats, entrepreneur- and elite-focused The Peak, with its ultra-high-net-worth lifestyle content, took third place in the Luxury category of Marketing’s Magazine of the Year.

These print placements follow Marketing’s earlier rankings of various SCMP digital offerings, and the multimedia portal STYLE, ranking top 3 Digital Media in the news and luxury category respectively.

The rankings are from surveying top marketers for their media preferences across digital, outdoor, TV, radio and print platforms, for targeting various consumer verticals, with more than 80 per cent of the 587 respondents being advertising decision makers at manager and higher levels.

The Peak’s upcoming edition will feature HKT executive director and group managing director Alexander Arena. He is spearheading his company's efforts to develop a 5G telecom service in Hong Kong, ushering in a new phase of development. Who is the man behind the next big development in the digital backbone of Hong Kong's economy? In this issue, we also take a special look at luxury properties that are only available via helicopter, for those who demand true privacy and off the grid, luxury living.
