CPG employees enjoyed the New Year concert by the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra

Last night at the Serbian National Theatre, CPG employees attended the concert by the Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, whose musicians performed popular disco hits from the seventies.

In the aftermath of this somewhat theatrical party, colleagues from CPG continued socializing at the sweet parlour “Teatar”, where late into the night they talked about the concert, enjoying the sweets, but also preparing for tonight’s karaoke-party.

Robert Čoban presented “The Economist: The World in 2014” at the Faculty of Political Sciences

“Good side to the economic slowdown is that we managed to draw out the best from each edition. Competition and misery is what makes people act”, said Robert Čoban, CEO of “Color Press Group”, opening the promotion of the annual edition of “The Economist” magazine at the Faculty of Political Sciences. He added that foreign investors were leaving Serbia, because they were not willing to do business at a non-competitive market, were media are used as money-laundering machines. “When speaking in front of the young, I always direct them towards the market. Truth be told, it is a harder and more complicated way, but bears guarantees that what you have created will not collapse during night”, Čoban emphasized.

Professor Predrag Simić, PhD, qualified “The Economist” to be among five best-quality magazines beyond doubt, because it offers a systematic view on everything that takes place in the world. “Authors of a yearbook present an optimistic prognosis, foreseeing economic growth in 2014, not only in America, but in Europe as well”, Simić added. He believes that “The Economist” is representative of the Euro-Atlantic community, where dominative premise is the one of the Western capitalistic world.

“I would not agree that the magazine represents the ideas of a group of countries, however it illustrates the ideology of liberal market orientation. The texts criticise the countries where the model of market economy has not been established, and that is all” said Professor Dušan Pavlović, PhD. He explained that in “The Economist” economy topics were not dominant, but those from the fields of politics, international relations and culture. He added that by reading the magazine, one does not get only the information from these fields, but also has the opportunity to advance his or her knowledge of foreign languages.

Professor Dragan Simić, PhD, said that it was a privilege to have the Serbian edition of this prestigious magazine. After presenting some of the themes dealt by “The Economist”, he pointed out that by analysing different factors the attention is drawn to changes which are taking place inside the society itself. “The more people with less work want to live better. It is one of the reasons leading to social-economic crisis and the condition we are in at the moment”, Simić concluded.

At Novi Sad’s Pavle Beljanski Memorial, tonight was held “Art & Wine Cocktail Party”, a solemn New Year reception, organized by “Color Press Group”.

Gathered guests were welcomed by Jasna Jovanov, manager of the Memorial, pointing out that the doors of this cultural institution were always open to visitors eager to enrich their knowledge on some of the greatest painters in our history.

Then spoke “Color Press Group” CEO Robert Čoban, who expressed gratitude to attendees, for their presence and confidence, and then granted diplomas to students of the School for journalists and editors CPG for successful completion of the course.

Then the guests walked around the Memorial, joined by custodians who familiarized them with value of the works within the permanent exhibition, including the works by Sava Šumanović, Petar Lubarda, Nadežda Petrović, Stojan Aralica, Milan Konjović and many others. Important and interesting is a painting La Grande Iza by Vlaho Bukovac, which is exhibited in a separate room within the Memorial, together with preserved furniture, books and diplomatic uniform of Pavle Beljanski.

Following the tour of observing the paintings, came the informal part, during which numerous guests, the company’s employees, business partners, media representatives and public figures, enjoyed the wines provided by “Mačkov podrum“.

Today, “Color Press Group” publishes over 80 magazines with high circulation in Serbia and regional countries, and several Internet portals with a great number of visits, including publications on lifestyle and culture, which also deal with topics such as art, science, travels… Furthermore, the company is one of founders of the National Association of Newspaper and Magazine Publishers, which was founded in Belgrade this year.

Color Press Group makes a New Year visit to the shelter for the homeless in Futog

For the second year in a row, Color Press Group, accompanied by its friends and associates, aims to bring some joy before the New Year holidays to those in need, who are left without a home. The shelter for the homeless in Futog hosts 34 protégées, among them also those who made decorations for the tree situated at the entrance of the “Hyatt Regency” hotel, and which for the first time won the title of the most beautiful tree at a charity event held in early December.

On the occasion of the forthcoming holidays, the shelter received, in the form of a donation, supplements (syrups, pills, probiotics) by companies “Bioklinika”, “Proton System” and “Vitalon Biopharm d.o.o.”, whereas the shops “Dexy Co” granted social games.

People from the shelter expressed empathy and their big heart when it comes to participating in traditional decorating of New Year trees, in which the entire fond was granted to the association DEBRA, whose founders are parents of “children-butterflies”. Dragutin Todorčević and Zoran Grabež, on the “Fairytale” theme, invented the character of the Nutcracker, from paper, while working in their little workshop, made in a storage room. Today, they are happy because they have made their small contribution in that way, whilst their modesty is illustrated by the fact that the pocket money received from the Ministry amounts to RSD 1.000. When asked to describe how they felt knowing that the tree that they had decorated was a winner, Zoran said: “I am always happier when my hand gives, rather than when it receives.”

Today’s visit to the shelter also included “Maxi housewives of the month” – Nađa Dojin, Smilja Telečki and Danijela Tojagić, who brought joy to the homeless with their delicious cakes and warm hearts, happily responding to charity visits for years in a row.

The Color Press Group team was joyfully greeted by a poem entitled “Panonian Sea”, whose author is a shelter protégée Dragutin Todorčević, and they all agreed that during the New Year’s Eve their only wish would be: good health!

„Clandestino“ campaign in the village of Bogovađa near Lajkovac!

See how it looked like in the village of Bogovađa near Lajkovac, when people seeking refuge in our country received necessary help, thanks to readers and employees of Color Press Group, as well as companies which showed their good will.

November 19, 2013 – In cooperation with the Commissariat for Refugees and Migrations of the Republic of Serbia, Color Press Group launched a campaign dubbed „Clandestino“ (Spanish: hidden, covert), a month ago, with the aim of helping threatened asylum seekers, who, fleeing from war or poverty in their countries, found their temporary shelter in Serbia.


Today, necessary food and clothing arrived at the centre in Bogovađa village near Lajkovac, thanks to readers and employees of Color Press Group, as well as all the companies which showed good will towards people seeking refuge in our country, such as „Miss Yu“ (clothing), „Telenor“ (clothes), „Carnex“ (pates), „Illy company“ (pasta), „Green market“ (apples and potatoes), „Obuća Metro“ (footwear) and sweets industry (4,800 wellness snacks)...

Due to overcrowded accomodation in Koviljaca Spa, centre in Bogovađa has been temporarily opened. The centre has 170 accomodation units, which is too small for the number of unfortunate people, whose number is constantly growing. The most of them come from Syria and Somalia, but there are also others from different countries: Eritrea, Algeria, Mali, Ethiopia... Those who are accomodated in the very centre are learning the language, visit workshops and socialise, while those who are outside the centre, accomodated in abandoned weekend houses and forests, are in constant need of food and cover from cold and precipitation.

They come to pick up their meal in the centre, once a day. It has been very good fortune that winter so far has been very mild. Jelena Maric, spokesperson of the Commissariat for Refugees and Migrations, says that all the people come with sad and heartbreaking stories, leaving the past behind them and in search of a better life, and that Serbia is only the transitional country where they usually spend less than a month. „I appeal to people not to be xenophobic, but first of all humane, and not to allow a bad image to leak into the world, because the majority of these unfortunate people are only in transit and they will not 'steal' a job from anybody here!,“ Jelena Maric said. Ivan Gerinov, assistant to the Commissary for Refugees and Migrations, who also followed the campaign of Color Press Group, said that there is no need for fear or panic among the residents of Bogovađa, who were prone to that, and pointed out that the immigrants are not trying to make things harder and that they will not cause trouble for anyone and that they are only hoping to enter some of the EU countries.

Color Press Group is the first private company which showed this kind of initiative. „I hope that other companies will follow, because this is the right way to show the real and prettier face of our country, which has always been prepared to help people in trouble!,“ Gerginov said.

The faces of asylum seekers are blurred in the pictures, in accordance with the law on the protection of their identity.

November 18, 2013

The first phase of „Clandestino“ campaign, started by Color Press Group with its partners in order to help centres for the accomodation of asylum seekers in Serbia, has been completed today. All the collected aid is being carried to centres in Bogovađa and Koviljača Spa tomorrow. The following companies are listed among the donors: Color Press Group, employees and readers (clothes), „Miss YU“, employees (clothes), „Telenor“, employees (clothes), „Carnex“ (pates), „Illy Company“ (pasta 500 x 0.5 kg), „Green market“ (apples and potatoes, 100 kg), „Obuca Metro“ (169 pairs of shoes), sweets industry, 4,800 wellness snacks.

The aid will be carried tomorrow by the representatives of Color Press Group and Commissariat for Refugees and Migrations to centres in Bogovađa and Koviljaca Spa, while the „Clandestino“ campaign continues. We are planning to deliver the second round of aid in January, so therefore, all the companies and individuals interested in providing aid, may contact the address indicated below!,“ Milica Đokic, director of corporate communications at Color Press group, said.

A letter of thanks to Color Press Group from Futog Shelter

The traditional sales exhibition of creative art and handiwork of beneficiaries has been opened today in Futog Shelter. This is the third time that the exhibition has been organized and this year’s theme is ‘life on a ranch’. Despite the meagre financial resources that the Shelter has at its disposal, beneficiaries have gladly prepared the exhibition with a lot of enthusiasm. During their stay in the Shelter, they crocheted and embroidered, made objects from wood, glass and stained glass. The aim was to boost their self-confidence and to motivate them to return to normal life.  

The exhibition was opened by Anđelka Barać, the director of the Shelter in Futog. Ljubica Ubovic, the director of the Gerontological centre “Oaza”, addressed the audience. Slobodan Birclin and Dragutin Todorcevic (the author of the poem “The Pannonian Sea”), the beneficiaries of the Shelter, recited the lines from the poem.

Dragan Milošević, the managing director of the Gerontological Centre, handed in a letter of thanks to donors who are helping the Shelter in Futog: Color Press Group, Copex, Lazin Salaš, Salaš 137 and the School of Agriculture from Futog.

The ambience of the exhibition was completed by a band of “tambura” players who performed several thematic songs.

„Clandestino“ campaign: Help to those looking for asylum is reaching out a hand of hospitality!

Three weeks after the launch of the campaing for helping the centres for acceptance of illegal immigrants from Asia and Africa, „Clandestino“, upon the initiative of Color Press Group, a significant amount of essential goods needed for the seekers of the asylums have been collected.

Rados Djurovic, executive director of the Centre for the protection and aid to asylum seekers, points out the importance of such campaigns and stresses that in fairly recent past, we were all witnesses to a similar situation: „It is the same scenario, but on a much smaller scale than that with refugees from former Yugoslavia. Even today, there is a significant number of people, approximately 300 of them, who came here weighed with great problems and without adequate accomodation or care, left to their own devices. In a sense, Bogovadja is experiencing a humanitarian disaster at the moment, which is currently being extended to Koviljaca spa as well. It is extremely important that our citizens further raise their consciousness about the importance of helping others though these campaigns, which helps to develop a more humane society and general public. In this stage, it is only possible to do so with such campaigns, with people of good will, who are motivated to help those who are having the most difficult time, by helping them directly by means of donating clothes, footwear or food. Unfortunately, with the arrival of winter, problems of these unfortunate people tend to get worse and now is the right time to give them a helping hand.”

Jelena Maric, spokesperson of the Commissariat for Refugees and Migrations, explains that this year, Serbia is faced with a large number of migrants, who, on their way to the countries of the Western Europe, stay in our country for a while. “At the moment, we have a number of people in Bogovadja who are outside the Asylum Centre, as well as two full Asylum Centres, but we are doing our best to overcome that and take a lease of private accommodation in order to find everyone a place to stay. At the time when we are faced with the high level of xenophobia, intolerance and lack of understanding even for our neighbours, let alone someone who is different or has a different colour of skin, the campaign to help these people is the most important in terms of giving them hope that there are still people who want to help someone who has a different name or has different cultural habits, who will not stay here, but who will remember Serbia as a country in which they were treated humanely, thanks to these gestures and helping hands,” Maric concluded.

November 4, 2013

Two weeks after Color Press Group started “Clandestino”, giving aid to centres for the acceptance of illegal immigrants from Asia and Africa, many companies and individuals have also joined this initiative.

“Many times in its history, Serbia proved that it can show empathy towards people who have lost their homes, and even their countries, regardless of their faith, race or nation. In 1941, 20,000 Slovenians found their home in Serbia after they had been driven out from their country by Germans. In 1990s, Serbia became a sanctuary for hundreds of thousands of refugees from former Yugoslavian republics, which were devastated by a civil war! Now, in 2013, we have a chance to show that we are worthy of this tradition, even in the times of economic crisis and poverty,” Robert Coban, president of Color Press Group, declared and revealed that the first aid to centres in Bogovadja and Koviljaca spa is due in the middle of November.

October 25, 2013

For the past 12 years, Color Press Group organizes regular monthly aid campaigns for different homes for children, patients, elderly and homeless people, such as Children’s Village in Sremska Kamenica, a Home for Developmentally-Challenged Children and Youth in Veternik, “Oaza” (“Oasis”), a home for the elderly and a homeless shelter in Futog.

A recent tragic shipwreck near Lampedusa island in which several hundreds of illegal immigrants from Africa died, motivated us to remember how our county has become the sanctuary for several thousands of illegal immigrants from Africa and Asia.

As the motto of our campaign, we have chosen a song by Manu Chao, “Clandestino” – which deals specifically with this problem of modern humanity: millions of people from Asia, Africa and Latin America who are fleeing wars, repression, hunger and poverty and who too often die in attempts to reach Europe or North America.

Last year, 2,723 persons requested an asylum in Serbia, out of which 1,560 were accommodated in centres in Koviljaca spa and Bogovadja. During the first six months of 2013, 1,516 foreign citizens requested the asylum after crossing the border, and 1,112 of them went through the abovementioned centres. The majority of asylum seekers come from Eritrea, Syria, Somalia, Mali, Sudan, Afghanistan…

In cooperation with the Commissariat for Refugees and Migrations of the Republic of Serbia, Color Press Group organizes a campaign to aid all these people that are accommodated in centres for asylum seekers in Bogovadja and Koviljaca spa.

Partners in this campaign, companies that are our clients, friends and advertisers, may donate food, footwear, clothes, medicines, vitamins, equipment and all other essential things for the upcoming winter.

Partners may donate goods from their product lines or to buy and donate something from the list submitted to us by the centres in Bogovadja and Koviljaca spa.

“Our campaigns so far have been directed to those who require help in our immediate surroundings: children, the elderly, homeless people… This time, these are people from Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea or Syria! Illegal immigrants who will maybe spend only few months in our country en route to some other European country. These are the people we will most likely never meet again. That is exactly a reason why I believe that we should show our solidarity and the real face of our country, since, throughout history, we often helped people who had to leave their homes due to wars, repression or poverty!”, Milica Djokic, director of corporate communications of Color Press Group, said.

Individuals or companies interested in joining us in this campaign may contact us via

Family support is the key – “Aqua Viva”, with support from “Color Press Group”

The Aqua Viva brand, part of the “Knjaz Miloš” company, has launched a campaign entitled “Aqua Viva Oasis of Support”, aimed at promoting in a different and proactive way the importance of support that comes from a family, in order to recognize our talents best, and reach our goals. “Color Press Group” provides media and all other support to a beautiful and useful project such as this one. “Aqua Viva Oasis of Support”, which will offer its activities to visitors throughout Serbia, was started in Novi Sad, at the popular Štrand Beach, and a week later it was repeated at Ada Ciganlija in Belgrade.

The visitors could not only enjoy with their families visiting nature, but could also learn more about adequate rehydration and nutrition, and the importance of regular physical exercise.




Visitors of the “Aqua Viva Oasis of Support” had multiple activities to choose from. The youngest had an opportunity to attend a beginner’s course in riding bicycles and rollers, and to participate in a programme of professional orientation with pedagogues and psychologists, which would bring them closer to potential type of work they might do, in an entertaining and creative way. The youngest, followed by a team of pedagogues, through writing and drawing had a chance to do the tests connected to feelings and self-confidence, as well as tests of general knowledge. On the other hand, the schoolchildren could seek advice from psychologists in the field of professional orientation. All family members could choose lessons in yoga and pilates, but also somewhat more dynamic activities, such as tennis and badminton. All activities were supervised and organized by animators and the dr Feelgood team.

The Olympic Day: The “Color Press Group” team ran in the relay race at Košutnjak!

Traditionally, this year the Olympic Committee of Serbia marked the anniversary of the International Olympic Committee. The IOC’s 117. birthday was celebrated by organizing the Olympic Day, which was held on the trim path at Košutnjak. The Olympic Day promoted universal Olympic values, such as healthy lifestyle, environmental protection, fair play and equality; nevertheless, special emphasis was on family values and promotion of family as the pillar of any given society. In a family race, over three hundred and fifty families took part. This year, the Serbian team, which will participate at the Mediterranean Games in Mersin, Turkey, was presented. Again this year, the Serbian Olympic Committee organized a relay race for sponsors and partners at the 1200m fraction of the path. The idea was for those employed at companies which are sponsors and partners to form mixed teams (including male and female participants), consisting of 6 members (with minimum three women). Each member of the team was to run across the 200m section. The team of “Color Press Group”, which has been a partner to the Serbian Olympic Committee (OKS) for many years, was comprised of Marina Luković, Aida Bajazet, Danijela Stamenković, Stefan Ćulibrk, Gojko Popović and Robert Čoban.

“Metro Footwear” and “Legend” provided shoes and underwear for the homeless!

Following the visit to the Shelter for the Homeless in Futog, towards the end of December, employees of the “Color Press Group” were their guests again yesterday. With best wishes for the New Year, protégées of the Shelter received necessary winter footwear, as well as new underwear items. An activity launched by the “Color Press Group” on December, 21st 2012, inviting other companies to join forces in order to provide help for the Shelter, was successful, and this time “Metro Footwear” and “Legend World Wide” generously granted shoes and boots for the winter season, and underwear items. This donation turned out to be greater than expected (“Metro Footwear” donated over three hundred pairs of footwear, expressing readiness to repeat the same activity in spring and in autumn, granting overall around one thousand pairs; whereas “Legend” provided one hundred sets of underwear) because both the protégées and the Shelter’s employees showed huge satisfaction and gratitude, adding that the Shelter has not seen any donation of such big proportions. The fact that in the Shelter for the Homeless, there are thirty protégées, and also over one hundred of them who come occasionally to a warm meal and clean clothes, is even more significant when we take into account that many of them before this horrifying fate had their home, family and job, and that the number of those with higher and university education is on the rise. In 2013, “Color Press Group” will continue to provide help to the protégées and employees at the Shelter for the Homeless, but involvement of other subjects and companies in Vojvodina and Serbiawill be noticed, too. For more information on how to help these people, please send an e-mail to the following address:
