SPH Magazines appoints Two2 Co Ltd to launch Asia-Pacific Boating and AsiaSpa

Singapore, 2 March 2020 - SPH Magazines today announced that it has issued the licenses for the Asia-Pacific Boating and AsiaSpa magazines in Hong Kong to Two2 Co Ltd. With these licenses, Two2 will take over the operations of both magazines.

For over 40 years, Asia-Pacific Boating has been the leading name among luxury yachting publications in the region, with a reputation among Asian yacht owners and enthusiasts for timely reviews, news and features, while AsiaSpa is a luxury lifestyle and travel publication dedicated to the pursuit of complete wellbeing.

The magazines will be available for distribution both in the digital and physical formats in Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand.

Kicking off with the May/June 2020 issue, Asia-Pacific Boating and AsiaSpa will sport bold new looks, while continuing to provide the latest industry news, trends and features. They will also be available in enhanced formats across print, digital and multimedia platforms to reach out to a wider audience.

As an appointed licensee, Two2 will take over the organising of the highly anticipated Asia Boating Awards and AsiaSpa Awards to honour leading brands and industry icons for their outstanding achievements in the year, alongside tailor-made branded events to engage readers from both titles.

Joseph Lee, Managing Director of SPH Magazines, said: “We are excited to partner Two2 and reconnect with our readers of Asia-Pacific Boating and AsiaSpa magazines. With this strategic partnership, we look forward to reposition SPH in the Asia Pacific region as a major magazine publisher and offer advertisers greater accessibility to target audiences in the region.”
