Advanstar to outsource production, cut about 100 jobs

By Published on .

Woodland Hills, Calif.—Advanstar Communications, a b-to-b publisher and trade show operator, announced it has outsourced some production-related functions for its magazines and directories to HCL Technologies. Advanstar said it will cut about 100 jobs at its facility in Duluth, Minn. About 75 positions will remain at that facility.

The company said it will realize cost savings from the move. “Because of its impact on our employees and their families, this was not a decision we made lightly. Given the many challenges facing the business-to-business print industry, we must change the way we do business in order to continue to provide maximum value and service to our customers,” Joe Loggia, Advanstar’s CEO, said in a statement.
