Reseller News to remain in New Zealand

IDG to manage Computerworld, Reseller News, PC World and CIO out of Australia

Technology titles ComputerworldReseller News and PC World will continue to operate in the New Zealand market once returned to licence owner IDG next month.

Following the announcement last week that Fairfax Magazines had resigned these licences, it has been mutually agreed that CIO will also return to IDG after today’s decision to retain their presence in the local market.

“While we were very committed to continue publishing CIO, with today’s decision that IDG will retain its presence in New Zealand, it seems logical they should manage all of their brands in this territory,” says Fairfax Magazines general manager Lynley Belton.

The mastheads will be managed out of Australia by IDG with all existing websites and events continuing uninterrupted with the change. IDG also plans to continue publishing CIO and is committed to the continuing success of CIO events in New Zealand.

“We are delighted to retain an ongoing presence in the New Zealand market, provide a seamless Australasian media-buy for advertisers and to continue the relationship with loyal readers,” says IDG Australia managing director Davy Adams.

IDG have expressed a desire to retain the current editor of CIOmagazine, Divina Paredes, who will remain based in New Zealand. IDG will also be appointing New Zealand based journalists to ensure robust coverage of the market.
