Manhasset, N.Y.—Hoping to leverage a string of recent acquisitions, CMP Media on Wednesday announced the creation of a full-service global custom events group. CMP Custom Events will capitalize on the addition of industry events producers —including Shorecliff Communications, Black Hat and MediaLive International’s Technology Media Group—which produces the Interop and Web 2.0 events. The division will provide event consulting and management services, including program development, content planning and execution, messaging, audience acquisition and event execution. Programs may include road shows, forums, roundtables and custom conferences. CMP Custom Events is part of CMP’s Integrated Marketing Solutions Group.
