Business magazine launch deferred to August

A QUARTERLY business magazine that aims to provide the inside track on what drives Scotland’s leading businesses, business people and entrepreneurs has revised its launch date.

The first edition of BQ Scotland will now be published in August.

The new, full-colour magazine – supplying a mix of business news, commentary from leading business people and profiles of Scotland’s most inspirational entrepreneurs – was originally scheduled to issue its first edition this month.

But Tyne and Wear-based Room501 Publishing, the company behind the publication, says the launch date change is due to its current publishing commitments in the north-east of England, one of the two regions where it publishes BQ magazine.

The publishers say a total of 8000 copies will be mailed on a named basis to a database that is constantly updated with a further 2000 distributed strategically to business centres, business hotels as well as business support and development agencies across the area.

An editor for BQ Scotland is still to be appointed.
