Northstar Travel Media Goes B2C
Northstar Travel Media, the popular B2B travel and event management publisher, is making a move toward the consumer market after their recent aquisition of Your Travel Insider. YTI was sought after due to the large subscriber database they had (over 1 million subscribers).
CEO Tom Kemp says the deal includes “performance based payouts” and some cash up front. The main reason for this move was to gain access to YTI’s database in order to make the shift to the consumer market that much easier.
Roy Weiss founded YTI in 2003 and will become the group publisher for Northstar Travel Media. This is the only acquisition the print and digital publishing group Northstar has made in almost a year.
