Australian Associated Press was formed over 65 years ago as a cooperative delivering overseas news to the national media from bureaus located in London and New York. Today AAP is Australia's largest independent originator and aggregator of news and information, serving the media, government, business and financial markets.
AAP Medianet - one of the commercial divisions - leverages this foothold to distribute media releases nation-wide.
Press releases can be disseminated by the AAP Wires, fax or email over the internet, ensuring a convenient and speedy delivery method directly into newsrooms.
Internationally, as an AsiaNet member, Medianet communicates directly with 33 countries across the Asia Pacific region and beyond, through its exclusive links with leading news release organisations in Europe and the United States.
