Access Intelligence purchases The TradeFair Group.
The TradeFair Group owns "Power" magazine, a title that has been covering business and technology in the global generation market for over 125 years. "Power" is published nine times a year for a current circulation of over 60,000 professionals at electric utilities, power producers, engineering firms and generating plants. TradeFair also produces "Coal Power," a bimonthly magazine launched in 2006 to cover the coal power generation market, and a range of conferences and events for the power industry including Clean Gulf, Clean Atlantic and Clean Pacific Conferences & Exhibitions, Electrical Power Conference & Exhibition and Industrial Fire, Safety & Security Conference & Exhibition.
Access Intelligence Don Pazour called the purchase of TradeFair "a transformational event for Access Intelligence The ability to round out our position in the energy market with both trade shows and magazines is underpinned by the trade show infrastructure we acquire with TradeFair Group."
In April of this year, TradeFair Group acquired "International Power Generation," "European Power News" and "Middle East Electricity" magazines and their related ancillary products from Nexus Business Media (London). All three acquired magazines were integrated into "Power" magazine. With the consolidation of the three acquired titles, "Power" circulation will be increased to about 72,000.
The purchase is Access Intelligence's fourth in the last 14 months. Previous acquisitions include "The Energy Daily," the LDC Forums and the DatatechPlant trade show. All of the acquired assets are a part of AI's Energy Group.
