      Immediate Media Co, the special interest content and platform company and since 2017 part of Hubert Burda Media, today announces the acquisition of Upper Street Events, one of the UK’s leading producers of consumer enthusiast events.

      The acquisition of Upper Street significantly strengthens Immediate’s strategic audience development capabilities. The alignment of the special interest events, such as craft, with Immediate’s existing portfolio of market leading brands creates exciting future growth opportunities.


      “The acquisition of Upper Street Events is a further step in Immediate’s multiplatform transformation complementing our strategy of focusing on special interest content and communities. We see significant opportunities for growth and development in the events space, both in the markets Upper Street already operate in and with our portfolio of market-leading brands. This deal enhances our ability to offer our consumers world class content, products, services and experiences, across print, digital and live events. I look forward to welcoming the talented Upper Street team to Immediate.”

These events are attended by over 250,000 high influence, passionate individuals and supported by 3,700 exhibitors and 150 major sponsors.


      “I genuinely can’t think of a more perfect home for Upper Street’s market leading, consumer events. We deliver premium experiences in passion-led markets which complement many of Immediate’s core special interest brands, and will allow us to accelerate our growth, and benefit from Immediate’s extensive experience in delivering multi-platform content. After a terrific 2018, this heralds a new and exciting next phase for the business, and I wish Immediate and the brilliant Upper Street team, the very best of luck.”
