LRP Publications Acquires HRO World Conferences and Expositions

Palm Beach Gardens, FL -In order to broaden its reach into the human resources community, LRP Publications acquired HRO World Conferences and Expositions from Unicomm LLC and Outsourcing Today LLC last week. The portfolio includes New York HR Week, LA HR Week and HRO World Europe. Berkery Noyes & Co. LLC represented Unicomm and Outsourcing Today in the transaction; LRP represented itself. The price was not disclosed.

            The acquisition brings LRP’s show total to eight, along with 40 audio conferences and about a dozen Webinars. The company publishes Human Resources Executive magazine and more than 120 newsletters in human resources-related fields.

             John Golicz, CEO of Unicomm, said the HRO conferences had matured to the point that LRP had a better channel to reach attendee participants. In addition, the move allows Unicomm to focus more on its travel and technology markets. The company is the organizer of Luxury & Travel Expo which is  co-located with the Adventures in Travel Expo. The two events drew over 3,500 travel industry members and an estimated 22,000 consumers at its event early this year.   “We are a great show launch team and we want to take advantage of those markets,” Golicz said. “HRO was mature and ready to move on to another organization that has a strategic stake in that marketplace.”

             This year’s events will continue to be managed by Unicomm with Outsourcing Today providing seminar content and direction. LRP will assume management responsibility in 2007.
