Beverly, MA - Pulvermedia has acquired Foreword Financial, a producer of trade shows, conferences and client meetings for banking and financial services professionals.

 

As owner and producer of the VON series of events,   Pulvermedia  dominates the niche of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) and  video exhibitions. The events are held in  Boston, San Jose, Berlin, Rome, Mexico City and Stockholm  and draw carriers, technology providers, industry luminaries, buyers, press, trade analysts, gurus and bloggers. Jeff Pulver, Founder and Chairman of Pulvermedia, is also one of the co-Founders of VoIP service provider, Vonage.

 

The first event planned for the combined entity will be a co-location of six Foreword Financial conferences under one  roof in Fall 2007. Five of these have been successful stand-alone events including the  Bank Card Conference, Operations Conference, Bank Technology Convention, Outsourcing Forum and the Security Forum. The other co-located show will be a  new conference, The Securities Brokerage and Asset Management Operations & Technology Conference.  

“We chose to become part of pulvermedia because of its infrastructure, team and track record to grow events worldwide,” said Mike ter Maat, co-founder of Foreword Financial. “Joining forces made sense as we look to grow our portfolio of events in the financial services sector.”

 

“Adding Foreword Financial and their portfolio of events to pulvermedia allows us to expand our reach into the financial services sector,” said Jason Chudnofsky, Chief Executive Officer of pulvermedia. “This move expands our portfolio of events into a sector that, like IP Communications, is experiencing rapid change and disruption.”
