“For the last 10 years, we’ve had a publishing partnership with the AIA, which concludes in December,” a McGraw-Hill Construction spokesperson said. “Working independently, we will be best positioned to provide a trusted voice, to serve the new and emerging needs of the architectural community and to advance our business interests. “It appears that AIA was essentially looking for a custom publication they would control,” the spokesperson added. “That is not what the market needs now or in the future.” When contacted by FOLIO:, Hanley Wood CEO Frank Anton declined to comment on the partnership other to say it is “in keeping with our belief that a focus on a single, large market remains the best strategy for b-to-b media companies.” This isn’t the first time the AIA has partnered with Hanley Wood. In 1976, the company’s founders served as the contract publishers for the association’s AIA Journal. Published 14 times annually, Hanley Wood’s Architect targets the commercial construction space and was launched, along with ArchitectMagazine.com, in 2006. It carries a BPA-audited circulation of 58,575. Residential Architect, which launched 12 years ago, carries a BPA-audited bimonthly circulation of 20,000.Hanley Wood also publishes Architectural Lighting, Concrete Construction and EcoHome magazines. The American Institute of Architects has selected Hanley Wood’s Architect and Residential Architect as the association’s official magazines. As part of the partnership—which has been agreed upon in principle and is expected to become effective in 2011—Hanley Wood Exhibitions will manage the AIA’s annual convention.While Hanley Wood will continue to own the magazines’ assets, starting next year it will collaborate with the AIA on editorial planning for both, and the AIA will have a dedicated section in each magazine to contribute content.The deal effectively ends a similar arrangement the AIA had with McGraw-Hill Construction and its Architectural Record magazine. It was not immediately clear what precipitated the change. Phil Simon, AIA’s marketing and promotions managing director, did not return a request seeking comment.

June 4, 2015 2 min read Apple Inc said it would start selling some models of its watch at its retail stores this month, and also roll out the gadget in seven more countries.The watch has been on display in Apple stores around the world since April 10, when it became available for preorder online and at shops including trendy fashion boutiques in Paris, London and Tokyo.Apple had directed people to order online, preventing long queues around its stores that have become a norm with the company’s rollout of new products.”We believe making the Apple Watch available for customers to purchase at an Apple retail store will drive increased sales volumes,” Cantor Fitzgerald analysts wrote in a note.The company said all orders, except one model, placed through May would be shipped to customers within two weeks.”The response to Apple Watch has surpassed our expectations in every way,” said Jeff Williams, senior vice president of operations. “We’re also making great progress with the backlog of Apple Watch orders.”The company has not given any sales figures for the watch since it began taking orders, but has often said demand was outstripping supply.”We believe the company has made significant progress in reducing its backlog as production ramps,” S&P Capital IQ analyst Angelo Zino said in an email.Shipments of at least 30 million watches were plausible next year, Zino said.Apple Watch will be launched in Italy, Mexico, Spain, South Korea, Singapore, Switzerland and Taiwan on June 26, the company said. The watch is currently available in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and the UK.Apart from online stores, customers in these countries can also buy the devices at Apple’s retail stores and some authorized resellers.(Reporting by Devika Krishna Kumar and Arathy Nair in Bengaluru; Editing by Joyjeet Das) Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global This story originally appeared on Reuters Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.
