The accelerating integration of the world’s economies is making it easier for publishers to serve markets beyond their national borders. Many obstacles to international marketing are falling away as the global village becomes reality. Others are being removed by the radical changes in Eastern Europe, the merging of the national economies of Western Europe and the free trade agreement between Canada and the United States.
These changes offer new publishing opportunities and the potential for increased competition. At Lexicon, we have been cultivating an international outlook and skills in international marketing for many years. We can offer our clients a depth of international expertise that cannot be matched in our industry.
Lexicon’s senior staff has extensive international experience in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Our staff can communicate comfortably in six major European languages and has worked in nearly half of the world’s developed countries.
Our team can operate knowledgeably and effectively on a senior management level with publishers and suppliers anywhere there is a market for magazines and other published information.
Among our clients are publishers who operate in more than one country, or who market publications internationally, Lexicon’s strength is its knowledge of the world markets and its demonstrated ability to operate effectively on every continent.
