The Telegraph Media Group (TMG) has purchased the watch-focused consumer show SalonQP and QP Magazine.
The move follows the acquisition of VOS Media earlier in 2013 and the recent launch of a new luxury channel for the Telegraph website. The first event scheduled under for after the purchase is SalonQP’s fine watch exhibition, which takes place at the Saatchi Gallery from November 7 to the 9. TMG has already served as the media partner for the event for the previous three years.
In a press release, Dave King, executive director of TMG, stated: “I am really pleased to be adding QP magazine and SalonQP to the Telegraph portfolio, particularly after working with them so extensively over the past few years. This development marks a natural expansion of our brand particularly after last week’s successful launch of Telegraph Luxury. Everyone at TMG is looking forward to working with James Gurney and his team much more closely, bringing greater value to our expanding Telegraph audience.”
The current SalonQP team, including QP Magazine editor James Gurney, will stay with the business.
