Stating that India was a priority market for Reed, Casella added, “India, with its growing consumerism, a buoyant economy, and mass affluent population, has opened up a market for critical business information – a space where Reed is the acknowledged leader.”

Prakash Iyer, Managing Director, Infomedia India Ltd, said, “We are delighted to be Reed’s publishing partners in India. With Infomedia’s local industry insights and Reed’s global expertise, we are hoping to provide Indian businesses with high-quality content in magazines that become mandatory reading.”
