CloserStill Media buys into eLearning Guild

CloserStill, which runs the Learning Technologies and Online Educa conferences, has bought a majority stake in Focuszone Media, Inc., which operates primarily as The eLearning Guild.

With a membership of over 40,000, The eLearning Guild will help to significantly raise the profile of Closerstill in the US, with conferences such as DevLearn (Las Vegas, Nevada), Learning Solutions (Orlando, Florida), and Realities 360 (San Jose, California.), now in it's stable.

There are various quotes floating about, but here's one of the better ones we've picked out:

David Kelly, executive vice president of the Guild - “this partnership with CloserStill empowers the Guild to connect to a broader global community in new and exciting ways. We’ll be able to bring more international perspectives into the conversations we host and highlight solutions from all around the globe that our community can learn from."

No figure for cash changing hands was undisclosed.
