SDM Goes to China
SDM Magazine’s October 2007 issue will be translated to Chinese and distributed at the Chinese People’s Security Expo (CSPE) in ShenZhen Nov. 1 to 4, 2007. It’s a unique opportunity for security-related publications within the BNP Media family.
The Chinese security market now exceeds $6.3 billion, growing at over 20 percent annually. More than 1,700 exhibits will be at the CPSE, held at the Shenzhen Convention & Exhibition Centre. “This is an important step in the continued leadership and growth of our brands as we attract new subscribers and reach new markets for our advertisers,” said Mark McCourt, publisher of SDM Magazine.
At present, two important national strategies are driving forces for the China security market:
The first strategy is peaceful cities. By the end of 2007, 38 pilot cities will be accepted into the program. The government plans to invest $937 million in the first 26 cities. The other strategy is strengthening police through science and technology. By 2008, the government plans to add 87 cities for a total 108, with equivalent investment.
