TradeFair Group purchases Power mags.

TradeFair Group (Houston, TX) has continued its expansion into the publishing sector, has acquired "International Power Generation," "European Power News" and "Middle East Electricity" magazines and their related ancillary products from Nexus Business Media (London). No terms were given.

All three acquired magazines will be integrated into TradeFair's "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. With the consolidation of the three acquired titles, "Power" circulation will be increased to about 72,000. TradeFair said that "Power" will now carry additional information on operations worldwide. 'this fits "Power's' purpose of serving the global industry by independently reporting the latest technology, trends, and best practices," the company added.

Launched in 1980, "International Power Generation" was published six times a year for a controlled circulation of 13,000 readers in 199 countries including engineers and senior managers within the power generation, transmission and distribution industries who have purchasing and specifying authority. The target audience included employees at publicly owned utilities, investor owned utilities, independent power producers, power equipment manufacturers, relevant government officials and financial and investor professionals. Editorial covers power generation, transmission and distribution developments worldwide, commentary, industry business and financial information, and new technologies.

"European Power News" had a mixed circulation of 8000 European power industry professionals at utilities and power equipment manufacturers as well as relevant executives throughout the range of industry sectors that deal with power issues, including the chemical, automotive equipment, government, construction, food/drink, petrochemical and healthcare industries. Also published six times a year, the magazine covered the new "energy mix" of the European energy markets and promotes the cause of sustainable energy and distributed generation.

"Middle East Electricity" covered the whole of the electrical engineering industry targeting the manufacturing and process industries, contractors involved in equipment installation, and power generation, transmission and distribution. It was distributed to 5000 electrical engineers, senior managers and related professionals throughout the Middle East, Europe and North America. It was also published six times a year.

Besides "Power" magazine, 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 Conference & Exhibition, Electrical Power Conference & Exhibition and Industrial Fire, Safety & Security Conference & Exhibition.
