Roularta Media Group International
In 1990, the monthly magazine Plus was launched in the Netherlands. It is an initiative of Senior Publications, a joint venture between Roularta Media Group and the French publisher Bayard Presse. The Plus concept had been previously successfully launched in Belgium with Bayard. Plus Netherlands participates in the 50 Plus Exhibition in Utrecht and in Media Plus, a specialised media agency for the seniors market. In 2021, RMG will acquire the full 100% of the Dutch activities (Senior Publications The Netherlands with Plus Magazine and G/Geschiedenis).
In 2017, Roularta Media Group takes over the Dutch monthly Landleven from Reed Business Information, part of the RELX Group. Landleven is a multimedia brand oriented towards those who live on the countryside. It reaches that community by way of the monthly Landleven magazine, a daily newsletter, social media, the website and two big events a year. Senior Publications Nederland BV (SPN), part of RMG, takes care of the management.
In 2001, Roularta - again together with its French partner Bayard - launched a monthly magazine for seniors Lenz. The name changed to Plus Magazine after some time. In 2008, the monthly magazines Frau im Leben and G/Geschichte were acquired. In 2021, Roularta will acquire 100% of the German activities.
