Cygnus buys nine regional shows

Published on .

Westport, Conn.--Continuing its torrid mergers and acquisitions pace, Cygnus Business Media announced Monday that it has acquired nine tradeshows from Cornerstone Expositions.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Cygnus acquired a series of eight regional building and construction tradeshows: MASCON (serving the Massachusetts market), CONEX Carolina, CONEX Wisconsin, CONEX Connecticut, CONEX Metro (serving the New York and New Jersey markets), CONEX Minnesota, CONEX Illinois, and the Contractors & Building Supply Show, held in Chantilly, Va.

Cygnus also acquired the New England Snow & Ice Removal Show. “These shows fit our desired profile of regional, targeted tradeshows with a strong track record of success,” Cygnus Business Media President-CEO Paul Mackler said in a statement.
