Hotels magazine sold – again

HOTELS Magazine’s former publisher Dan Hogan purchased the magazine and its assets, including the website and sister publication HOTELS’ INVESTMENT OUTLOOK, from Reed Business Information earlier this month.

He has now sold it to Chicago-based publisher Marketing & Technology Group (PLATE, MEATINGPLACE).  “My primary goal throughout this process was to find a partner for Hotels that would respect its legacy and invest in its future,” Hogan said.

The former publisher – and now, former owner – and a team of ex-Hotels staffers, including editor-in-chief Jeff Weinstein, will join the M&T Group to restore the magazine to its former glory.  M&T Group vice president Bill McDowell said they will boost the quality of the publication and “retool” Hotels’ online site, Hotels Investment Outlook will resume publication towards the end of the year.
