Spacehouse acquires

Mar 27, 2019, the UK’s market-leading news and information service covering a range of topics relating to air quality, has been acquired by publishing business Spacehouse.

The title, which includes the annual National Air Quality Awards, has been sold by the Environment Media Group which is focusing on developing its other brands and the launch of a new exhibition and conference event for the waste and recycling sector in May 2019.

AirQualityNews has an established pedigree in the UK having been launched in 2012. Since then it has provided a daily news service which now provides a uniquely useful archive on air quality developments.

The site, which is popular with readers from across the UK, including local authority officers, the motor industry, government, manufacturers and air quality consultants and businesses, will continue to provide a daily news service and newsletter. The 2019 National Air Quality Awards will be held next autumn.

Steve Eminton, publishing director of Environment Media Group, said: “With our ambitious plans for new products and events next year, we are focusing on these and so felt the time was right for AirQualityNews to move to Spacehouse Limited. I know Spacehouse already have a number of strong titles including and and they are keen to develop AirQualityNews which is something we welcome. They have an excellent reputation and I am confident that they will build on the strong platform we have created to date. Readers, advertisers and supporters will find the website to be in good hands.”

David Harrison, managing director of Spacehouse, said: “We are delighted with our acquisition of AirQualityNews which will enhance our wider environmental portfolio. There can be little doubt that the whole agenda surrounding air quality has become increasingly prominent and we are committed to investing in the website, conference and awards. We look forward to meeting some of the many visitors, sponsors and advertisers over the coming months.”
