U.S. magmedia mergers and acquisitions driven by exhibitions and mobile

Mergers and acquisitions in the U.S. magazine media industry have held mostly steady in the first six months of the year, though most of the action has been in ancillary categories, according to a story in Folio:, based on data compiled by the Jordan Edmiston Group. 

The biggest growth in the number of deals was 40% in exhibitions and conferences and 32% in mobile media and technology.

Consumer media and technology (which includes consumer magazines) saw a 9% increase in the number of deals year-over-year, while B2B media and technology saw 27% fewer deals.  (Click to enlarge)
Unfortunately, there is no comparable data available for the Canadian market. But the trends are likely similar.
