New Delhi: Iconic technology magazine Wired may launch an Indian edition by next year, according to Nicholas Coleridge, managing director of Conde Nast, UK, and vice president of Conde Nast International.
“We’re looking at Wired, which is one of our brands which I think will work very well here,” said Coleridge, who was in India to attend the World Magazine Congress earlier this week. “We haven’t fully decided whether to do it but Alex (Kuruvilla, managing director, Conde Nast India) is looking at it, we’re all looking at it... should happen next year sometime. We think there’s lots more opportunities in India.”
