CLEVELAND and BOSTON — Business-to-business publisher WTWH Media today announced the acquisition of the robotics division of EH Media. The acquired assets include Robotics Business Review, a world-class website focused on the global robotics and intelligent systems sector, and RoboBusiness, a leading annual robotics business-to-business conference and exposition that first ran in 2004. They will be incorporated into WTWH Media’s network of robotics websites, magazines, newsletters, events, and research.
“We are delighted to announce the acquisition of EH Media’s robotics division,” stated Dan Kara, vice president of robotics at WTWH Media. “Both RoboBusiness and Robotics Business Review are globally recognized, highly respected robotics media brands of long standing, and the acquisition itself could not have come at a better time.”
“The robotics sector has been expanding at a rapid rate for more than a decade, but as the recent upsurge in robotics investments and company launches clearly indicates, we are truly at a major inflection point at this time,” he said. “With the addition of RoboBusiness and Robotics Business Review, WTWH Media becomes a global robotics media powerhouse.”
Scott McCafferty, co-founder and managing director of WTWH Media noted, “The addition of RoboBusiness and Robotics Business Review will strengthen WTWH Media’s robotics portfolio tremendously, allowing us to better serve the entire robotics value chain of end users, engineers, and OEMs, researchers, investors, and more. Dan Kara launched RoboBusiness and Robotics Business Review, and as such, he is perfectly positioned to reinvigorate them, as well as integrate these high-value assets into WTWH Media’s existing robotics and intelligent systems business lines.”
“EH Media has been serving the robotics industry for over 10 years,” added Kenneth Moyes, president of EH Media. “Through our RoboBusiness conference and expo and our Robotics Business Review media offerings, we have provided essential information and services to the global robotics sector. I am pleased that under the new ownership of WTWH Media, these brands will continue to support the burgeoning robotics market.”
