NEW YORK CITY-Real Estate Media Inc., the publisher of, Real Estate Forum Magazine and a list of other online and print publications, has acquired the Real Estate Conference Group, a privately held company based in Los Angeles. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

The acquisition beefs up the firm’s highly successful RealShare Conference Series, which currently produces 14 regional and national events targeted to commercial real estate professionals in locations throughout the US. Three of these are in California.

RECG was founded by Martin S. and Barbara R. Stolzoff in 1985, and Stolzoff will continue to serve as a consultant to the company after the acquisition. RECG’s semi-annual meetings are widely regarded as the premier professional events in the state, attracting regional and national leaders from all sectors of the industry. The company has produced more than 40 conferences, with almost 40,000 attendees, including the first UCLA Real Estate Forecast and the first conference for USC’s Lusk Center for Real Estate. The Real Estate 2005 conference, to be held in February, will feature a keynote address by Michael Pralle, president and CEO of GE Real Estate.

“Over its long and distinguished history, the Real Estate Conference Group has built a reputation for events that attract A-list speakers and loyal attendees,” says Real Estate Media president and CEO Jonathan A. Schein. “We’re delighted that they will be joining our family and that we will continue to benefit from the Stolzoffs’ experience.

“This acquisition also fits well with our national expansion plans for our RealShare Conference Series,” Schein adds, “which has drawn more than 5,000 attendees in 2004. It cements our position as the authoritative media outlet for commercial real estate news and information and, enhances our existing presence in California.”

The addition of the Real Estate Conference Group is only the most recent development in the growth trajectory of Real Estate Media. In the past year alone, the firm increased the number of its highly successful conferences, growing the roster of regional events from nine to 14. Also, within that same timeframe, Real Estate Media nearly doubled the size of its newsletter division, from two to four publications, and expects to add another two newsletters in coming weeks. Most recently, the firm, whose print and online editors are the recipients of various Excellence in Journalism honors, unveiled its latest online editorial offering, GlobeSt.RETAIL, tailored to the news and information needs of the retail real estate community.
