Information about Maxim (magazine)Maxim is an international men's magazine based in the United Kingdom and known for its revealing pictorials featuring popular actresses, singers, and female models, none of which are nudes in the American version.
In the United States, Maxim is an industry leader, reporting a circulation of 2.5 million readers which they claim is enough to outsell leading competitors GQ, Esquire, and Details combined. The magazine is now using the brand name to market a myriad of other magazines and projects.
Expansion of the Maxim brandDue to its success in its primary markets, Maxim has expanded into many other countries, including Argentina, Canada, India, Indonesia, Israel, Belgium, Romania, the Czech Republic, France (marketed under "Maximal"), Germany, Bulgaria, Brazil, Chile, Greece, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Russia (where it stands now as the most popular men's magazine), Serbia, the Philippines, Singapore, Spain, Thailand, Ukraine, and Portugal (marketed under "Maxmen"). A wireless version of the magazine was launched in 2005 (12 years ago) across cellular carriers in twenty European and Asian countries.
In 1999 (18 years ago), MaximOnline.com was created. It contains content not included in the print version and focuses on the same general topics, along with exclusive sections such as the "Girls of Maxim" galleries and the "Joke of the Day". "Maxim Video" contains video clips of interviews, music videos, photo (wallpaper) shoots, and original content. The success of this website inspired Dennis Digital to create sites for its sister publications, such as Blender.
In Jan. 2002 (15 years ago), Dennis Publishing established an online and retail video division, Dennis Media Group. In 2005 (12 years ago) this division was disbanded and restructured to focus on creating video and multimedia content for the editorial branch of Dennis Digital.
On Feb. 5, 2005 (12 years ago), Maxim launched their own radio channel, Maxim Radio, on Sirius Satellite Radio.
On Jun. 5, 2006 (11 years ago), the magazine announced plans to build a casino on the Las Vegas Strip north of Circus Circus, but the casino plan failed after local condominium owners complained that the proposed casino would ruin their view. The land was sold to MGM Mirage.
On Jun. 15, 2007 (10 years ago), private equity firm Quadrangle Group, along with long-time media executive Kent Brownridge, announced the acquisition of the parent company of Maxim, Blender, Stuff and MaximOnline.com. As of Apr. 23, 2009 (8 years ago) Dennis Publishing has announced that it will no longer continue producing a print edition of Maxim in the UK, though the website for the UK version will remain.
Maxim is now published under Alpha Media Group.
In Jul. 2009 (8 years ago), Maxim partnered up with the UFC for the first-ever Maxim UFC Octagon Girl Search at the UFC Fan Expo. There were 40 girls participating in the contest, and the winner was Natasha Wicks.
