Caribou Media Group acquired two events and one publication from F+W Media.
The BLADE Show, now in its 37th year, is the largest knife event in North America. It is held each year at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta, draws 15,000 enthusiast attendees and sells 170,000 square feet of exhibit space to 800 exhibiting companies.
The company recently launched a second annual BLADE event to be held the first time later this year in in Portland, Ore.
BLADE Magazine has 28,000 subscribers to its monthly publication and is by far the leading publication serving the knife industry.
Corporate Solutions of Westport, Conn., was the exclusive advisor to F+W Media in this transaction.
In another deal, Endeavor Business Media scooped up nine hosted buyer events from Gallo Business Media.
These Hosted Buyer Events serve several industries including Transit Bus, School Bus, Trucking, Parks & Recreation, Fire Chiefs, Waste Haulers, Public Works and Jewelers.
“Michael Gallo and his team have done a great job building a buyer conference model that is extremely valuable for both the sponsors and attendees,” said Chris Ferrell, Endeavor’s CEO.
