PanStadia magazine has been purchased by Alad Limited, owners of Stadium & Arena Management (SAM). The two magazines will merge to become PanStadia & Arena Management.
Robert Else, chairman of Terraplas plc (current owners of PanStadia) said: “In these austere times it makes good business sense that the top two industry magazines should merge to form one. I am delighted that it will be branded as ‘PanStadia & Arena Management’, as it is very important to me that the name PanStadia continues, and I am certain that this merger will not only ensure this, but will take the combined magazine to new heights. Terraplas plc will continue to be a substantial advertiser, as we know that this is the best media vehicle with which to spend our marketing budget.”
Alan Levett, managing director of Alad Limited, added: “Robert and I have known each other for over 15 years and share similar business ethics. As such we have become firm friends and so instead of owning two magazines that were competing against each other it seemed natural to work together and to offer the best of both titles – all wrapped up in one. Thus PanStadia & Arena Management is born.”
