From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Reed Business Information is a large business publisher in the United States, United Kingdom, continental Europe, Australia and Asia, often referred to as RBI. It is a division of Reed Elsevier, hosting conferences and publishing magazines that serve business professionals in the electronics, construction, media, manufacturing, and hospitality industries. Among its most well-known brands are Variety, The New Scientist, and Publishers Weekly. In 2005, Reed Business Information started the Quill Awards, a literary award broadcast on NBC.

The trade magazine industry has been under pressure in recent years, and the parent company made several efforts to sell either part or all of RBI. In early 2008 Reed Elsevier said it was considering a sale of the entire division.[1] On February 2009 Ian Smith was appointed as new CEO and the decision to divest was cancelled.[2]

In July 2009, the company reported that it might sell some magazines while holding on to others. In December, it sold three (Broadcasting & Cable, Multichannel News and This Week in Consumer Electronics) to New Bay Media.[3]

In January 2010, it announced plans to close three magazines that had failed to attract a buyer: Video Business, Manufacturing Business Technology and Industrial Distribution.[4]
