Northstar Travel Group acquires travel technology media Tnooz


Northstar Travel Group has acquired Tnooz and its related assets as it accelerates the development of its PhocusWire media brand. 

Tnooz will be merged with PhocusWire over the course of the remaining months of 2018, with its content archive, signature products and editorial focus on online travel and travel technology to be retained by the PhocusWire team.

"Over the past nine years, Tnooz has developed a large following of travel leaders through strong and consistent editorial coverage of the most important topics impacting the travel technology ecosystem. We are excited to welcome the Tnooz readers and commercial partners to PhocusWire," said Pete Comeau, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Phocuswright.

US-based Tnooz was founded in 2009 and became an important leader of in-depth coverage of the online travel business, including the pioneering of early industry hackathons and the profiling of hundreds of industry startups.

Bob Sullivan, president of the travel group at Northstar Travel Group, added: "We are very excited to merge Tnooz into PhocusWire under the leadership of our editor-in-chief, Kevin May.  We are confident that the loyal audience and partners of both brands will be very pleased with the results as these two leading travel news brands join forces."

Last year, the Group made several strategic acquisitions, including HotelsWorld, a series of hotel industry events, travel planning app AXUS, and Burba Hotel Network, a global producer of hotel investment conferences.

Northstar Travel Group is also the owner of well-known brands including Meetings & Conventions Asia and Travel Weekly Asia.
