Endeavor Business Media Acquires Hosted Buyer Events


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Endeavor Business Media has acquired nine hosted buyer events, which serve the Transit Bus, School Bus, Trucking, Parks & Recreation, Fire Chiefs, Waste Haulers, Public Works and Jewelers industries, from Gallo Business Media.

Established late last year, Endeavor was set up to acquire and operate trade publications, websites and events.

“I am very impressed with the buyer conference model Michael Gallo and his team developed,” Endeavor CEO Chris Ferrell told Trade Show Executive. “They have been able to create events that have value for both the sponsors and the attendees in industries where the company had no prior relationships. We look forward to taking their model and applying it to the industries where we already have established relationships through our publications and sites.”

Gallo President Michael Gallo said, “The way that we approach the hosted buyer model is a great platform for the other properties that Chris is bringing together under the Endeavor umbrella. And we’re looking forward to continuing to serve our existing markets as well as looking at opportunities in the verticals that Chris is bringing together.”

Negotiations for the deal were facilitated by merger and acquisition advisory firm Corporate Solutions of Westport, Conn.
