With franchisees in place in Singapore, Philippines, Japan and Korea, and plans to expand imminently to Kuala Lumpur. Angloinfo is expanding rapidly across the region. We caught up with the team behind this exciting online community to findout more!

What is Angloinfo info?

Whether you’re new to Hong Kong or a long-term expat, Angloinfo is your essential guide to life in the city. It’s an online resource for English-speaking businesses and services in Hong Kong, including listings, essential how-to information, events, classifieds and lifestyle blogs.

How did it come about?

Angloinfo started in 1999 in the French Riviera, when two expats created it to share useful information. Today, there are over 130 sites in over 40 countries around the world. Angloinfo Hong Kong is a partnership between the group in Hong Kong and the UK-based company.

Who is the site aimed at?

Though traditionally Angloinfo has focused on the expat community, we feel in Hong Kong our content and listings of over 3500 businesses, how-to advice pages and events are useful to the wider English-speaking community. Whether you’re looking for the best restaurants, a car mechanic or how to hire a helper, it’s all covered on our site. And we already have a wide reach. Our regular newsletter now goes out to over 15,000 subscribers in Hong Kong.

How do business get themselves listed on the site?

Individuals and companies can submit their own listings for free via the website, to feature in the directory, events and classified sections. Or they can contact our team for premium listings and advertising.

How does being in a co-working space fit with the business?

It allows us to be flexible. We have three connected businesses – Angloinfo Asia, Nexus Media Asia and CardCo Ltd –  so the shared office arrangement at Urban Serviced Offices suited our expanding teams, taking more offices and desks as we needed them.

What do you have planned in the next few months?

We’re growing fast and have lots in store, such as giveaways, competitions, live events and lots of new lifestyle features on the site. Expect to see much more of us between now and Christmas!
