Museums + Heritage Advisor acquires leading sector magazine

The team behind the annual Museums + Heritage Show and Awards, has today announced the acquisition of leading cultural sector title: Museums and Heritage Magazine.

Museums and Heritage Magazine, which was owned by Ten Alps Communications Ltd, has never previously been connected with the Show and Awards despite the obvious similiarity in name. The magazine will be merged with Museums + Heritage Advisor to create Europe’s largest online resource for the cultural community.

The magazine acquisition responds to the growing need for a dominant, comprehensive online resource to connect and inspire museums, designers, suppliers and contractors within the cultural sector. Museums + Heritage Advisor is already an online hub of essential information and advice that informs, inspires and connects those working in the museums and heritage industry.

Anna Preedy, Director of Museums + Heritage Show Ltd, said: “We’re delighted to announce the acquisition of Museums and Heritage Magazine. By integrating the finest elements of the magazine into our popular Advisor website we will provide those working within the sector with an unparalleled online resource – a one-stop-shop for information, case studies and sector news as well as the opportunity to connect with each other.”

The magazine acquisition completes the company’s 20-year-long industry stronghold, adding the magazine title to the prestigious Museums + Heritage Awards for Excellence and the annual Museums + Heritage Show – the UK’s largest event for the cultural sector. The Show at Olympia, London on May 14th and 15th brings together all of the latest technologies, services and thinking for professionals working in museums, galleries, heritage and cultural visitor attractions.
