Human Resource Executive (HRE) Magazine has acquired HRM Asia Pte Ltd., a move HRE says will help globally expand the company's reach to HR professionals.
HRE Magazine, which is the producer of the HR Technology Conference & Exposition, announced its acquisition of Singapore-based HRM Asia, a multi-platform network that provides HR discussion and information to professionals in Asia Pacific.
“As the leader in HR technology conferences and content, this acquisition is a logical progression in our global growth plan,” vice president of global events and Human Resource Executive publisher Rebecca McKenna said in a news release. “It’s particularly exciting to deepen our relationships with multi-national vendors and HR professionals who are seeking to expand their position across APAC.”
HRE's acquisition of HRM Asia includes attaining the HR Summit & Expo, Smart Workforce Summit and the HRM Asia Congress Series, the HRM Reader's Choice Awards and HRM Magazine as well as digital content.
“The Asia-Pacific region is a prime source of business growth and qualified talent,” LRP Publications and LRP Conferences President Kenneth Kahn said in a statement. “It’s also a region that has been at the forefront of HR technology trends, especially in its adoption of mobile technologies. HRM Asia has been influential in providing this community with relevant thought leadership.”
