Access Intelligence Acquires Conference Organizer P3C Media
As reported first by their Folio: brand yesterday, Rockville, Md.-based Access Intelligence has acquired P3C Media, owner and operator of the Public-Private Partnership (P3) Conference and Expo, for an undisclosed sum, the two firms announced.
The three-day P3 Conference and Expo attracts more than 1,300 public- and private-sector professionals annually, and has since spawned a series of ancillary summits, including the P3 Airport Summit, the P3 Federal Conference, the P3 Higher Education Summit and the P3 Water Summit.
"P3C Media has been at the forefront of the burgeoning private-public partnership space for many years and has firmly established itself as the market leader for bringing together top government, industry and financial leaders across several verticals in the P3 marketplace," said Don Pazour, CEO of Access Intelligence, in a statement.
P3C founder and president Eric Iravani will join Access Intelligence's Energy & Engineering division led by SVP and group publisher Jennifer Schwartz. The acquisition comes four days after the group announced the creation of a fifth media brand, IIoT Connection, dedicated to the industrial internet-of-things space, and about four months after Access Intelligence acquired VMA Media.
Reorg Research Rebrands as Reorg
Reorg Research, Inc., has rebranded all its products under the "Reorg" umbrella. The new brand identity reflects the evolution of the firm and accompanies the launch of Reorg's new website.
Building on the unique editorial team of reporters and financial and legal analysts that has distinguished the company since its inception in 2013, Reorg has continued to expand its platform to address the specialized information needs of its subscribers.
"Reorg has evolved over the past few years well beyond our traditional strength in the distressed debt market," said Kent Collier, founder and CEO of Reorg. "This rebrand focuses us on our goal of delivering a consistent experience across products while continuing our tradition of providing subscribers with the news, analysis and data that they need to do their jobs better."
Reorg's current product lineup now includes Reorg Americas, Reorg Europe, Reorg Covenants, Reorg Emerging Markets, Reorg First Day and Reorg M&A (formerly known as Event Driven). The company expects to launch Reorg Asia and Reorg Pharma offerings in early 2019.
Industry Dive Expands Coverage of Food Industry With Restaurant Dive
Since 2012, the Food Dive team has worked to keep readers on top of the ever-changing food industry. In 2017, that meant launching what is now Grocery Dive—a home for all things food retail. But there's another facet of the food world deserving of dedicated coverage.
Industry Dive yesterday announced the launch of a new daily publication titled Restaurant Dive to chronicle the transformation of food service.
"In this challenging time for the industry, Restaurant Dive aims to answer the questions of how restaurants can not only survive but succeed by analyzing the trends impacting owners, operators, chefs, investors, employees and diners," said Emma Liem, associate editor of Restaurant Dive.
