New York—Apprise Media's Canon Communications Wednesday reached an agreement to acquire several properties that Reed Elsevier put on the block earlier this year.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

The properties Canon is acquiring include several trade shows and one print publication. The trade shows are: Assembly Technology Expo, International Powder & Bulk Solids, National Manufacturing Week, Quality Expo and a handful of regional trade shows in the quality expo and assembly markets.

Canon also acquired the monthly magazine Powder/Bulk Solids (40,000–circ.) from Reed.

The events were part of Reed Elsevier’s Manufacturing trade show portfolio; Powder/Bulk Solids was part of Reed’s New Products Group.
