Advanstar HQ Moves to Santa Monica


Santa Monica, CA – Advanstar Communications completed the relocation of its corporate offices in late December from Woodland Hills, CA to Santa Monica, which is 20 miles south of its previous headquarters location.

The move affected most of the corporate staff as well as the management and staff of MAGIC Marketplace. Part of the Licensing International Expo team, including Show Director Liz Crawford, is now based in the new office. The relocation puts Advanstar executives closer to the West Los Angeles fashion industry as well as Los Angeles International Airport.

The Powersports & Automotive Group remains based in Irvine, along with Danny Phillips, executive vice president. The company also has offices in New York City and Cleveland.

The new HQ address is 2501 Colorado Ave., Suite 280, Santa Monica, CA, 90404. Reach CEO Joe Loggia at (310) 857-7500 or
