How we can help you

We can connect you to one of the world's largest audiences of high net worth, highly educated & international professionals.

Our audience has a uniquely international lifestyle. Some are living, working or studying abroad; some are actively researching the different countries we write about – for work and pleasure; while others are preparing for a relocation abroad.

Our audience may have different reasons for reading The Local, but what connects them is the spirit of adventure, a desire to travel, a need to experience the world and a curiosity of wanting to know more.

To help you successfully reach our unique audience The Local offers a wide-ranging commercial portfolio; from sponsored content (native advertising), to targeted banner ads and much more.
