The Peak Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Singapore, 12 May 2009 – The Peak, Singapore’s leading luxury lifestyle magazine published by SPH Magazines Pte Ltd (SPH Magazines), will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a gala dinner featuring the Who’s Who of Singapore’s corporate and social circles on 21 May.

Peak was launched a quarter of a century ago to herald the changing needs of an increasingly affluent and cosmopolitan population and to celebrate the finer things in life. Since then, it has grown from strength to strength to become the region’s leading lifestyle magazine, with editions in Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Malaysia.

The publication took another major step in its evolution in December 2007 when it unveiled a new look that made it more relevant and appealing to the new generation of corporate leaders. Since then, it has won several awards, including an Award of Excellence at the APEX AWARDS 2008, a Silver at the Asian Print Awards 2008, and a second placing in the Luxury & Society category for Marketing Magazine’s Top Media Special. It was also a finalist in the Best Visual Series category at the MPAS Singapore Magazine Awards 2009.

The 25th anniversary gala dinner at Shangri-La Singapore will also see the launch of an exclusive commemorative publication to showcase the personalities and luxury lifestyle issues that have graced the pages of the magazine in the last 25 years.

“The Peak has successfully chronicled the luxury lifestyle in Singapore and the region over the past 25 years. More importantly, it has transformed itself over the years to stay relevant to the current generation of success builders. That is an achievement worthy of celebration,” says Mr Francis Kan, The Peak’s Editor.

Mr Dennis Pua, Managing Director, SPH Magazines, said: "Turning 25 is a significant milestone for The Peak. It marks the magazine's achievement in maintaining editorial excellence and creating ongoing value for our advertisers and business partners. With this gala dinner, we are celebrating our 25 years of success with all our stakeholders and we thank them for their ardent support. The Peak will continue to present 'The Finer Things in Life' and stay relevant to our readers and partners."

Guests will be treated to an evening of fine dining accompanied by entertainment from local pop and jazz vocalist Dawn Ho, and the Little Big Band.

Supporting the event are Julius Baer, Pernod Ricard, Vedure, Bjets and Clarity AV.
