Emerald Expositions Acquires Campus Safety from EH Media
Emerald Expositions, owners of the CEDIA Expo, has acquired selected assets of EH Media, including Campus Safety Magazine and its sister brands, and the Campus Safety Conferences.
Emerald Expositions, a leading operator of business-to-business trade shows in the United States and owners of the CEDIA Expo, announces the acquisition of Campus Safety magazine, the Campus Safety Conferences, and other key brands serving the technology industries, including CE Pro, Commercial Integrator (CI), Security Sales & Integration (SSI), TechDecisions and Total Tech Summit.
This blended package of show and media assets will integrate and strengthen the Emerald Expositions Design Group of trade shows including HD Expo (Hospitality Design), ICFF (formerly the International Contemporary Furniture Fair), the Healthcare Design Conference, GlobalShop and Expo and Design and Construction Week. Each of these events benefits from the audiences served by this portfolio of technology platforms. Emerald Expositions acquired the CEDIA Expo platform from CEDIA in January of 2017 establishing a presence in the smart/connected residential and light commercial markets.
All of these brands, including CEDIA Expo, allows the Emerald design brands to develop programming, education and connections that make for beautifully designed, safe and increasingly smart/connected spaces
“Specifiers of residential and commercial spaces are hungry for insights, strategic partnerships and know-how concerning the intelligent integration of technology in built environments,” says David Loechner, president and CEO Emerald Expositions. “Emerald Expositions is perfectly poised to bring technologists and specifiers together. The acquisition of these platforms allows for integration into established Emerald Expo design events, as well as to continue to grow and develop the platforms themselves.”
“Campus Safety magazine and the Campus Safety Conferences are energized to continue our mission as a leading information and educational resource for the industry,” says Jason Knott, vice president of EH Media’s Security/CE Group. “As part of Emerald Expositions, the team at Campus Safety looks forward to expanding the information and education we bring to police chiefs, security directors, IT personnel and executive administrators involved in public safety for hospitals, schools and universities.
Campus Safety was acquired by EH Media in 2013. The brand holds three Campus Safety Conferences each year across the United States. These two-day events bring together hundreds of key decision-makers in the field of campus safety.
The Total Tech Summit is a three-day hosted event with 400+ elite integrators, connecting them with more than 150 sponsoring suppliers. The Summit is all about helping top integrators grow and improve their businesses. This year’s event takes place November 7-9 in Pittsburgh.
The brand will continue to be based in Framingham, Mass. The newly acquired brands and CEDIA will have installations at Design and Construction Week, HD Expo and ICFF in 2019.
