MecklerMedia Purchases 3DPrint.com, Launches Global 3D Printing Ad Network

This morning, MecklerMedia (OTCQX: MECK), the company behind the Inside 3D Printing Expo & Conference series, has announced the acquisition of 3DPrint.com, along with related assets from Forum Advertising LLC, previously owned by Eddie and Brian Krassenstein. As a part of the purchase, MecklerMedia now has a 25% equity in the site’s accompanying forum, 3DPrintBoard.com.  While the Krassensteins will continue on with the company as the new directors of ad sales, their editorial roles at 3DPrint.com will continue only up until MecklerMedia’s Inside 3D Printing event in Santa Clara, CA, which takes place October 20-22, 2015.

3DPrint.com, as you may know, is a site dedicated to publishing 3D printing news, with its 3DPrintBoard.com serving as an auxiliary platform for discussion.  While writing staff from 3DPrint.com will stay on, ownership control will passed onto MecklerMedia. As MecklerMedia also holds an equity position in our own site, this gives the company a unique opportunity to create the first ad network for the entire 3D printing industry.  Now, MecklerMedia is offering ad buying opportunities that encompass 3DPI and its email newsletter, as well as Inside 3D Printing News and its newsletter, 3DPrint.com, and the Precision Metalforming Association’s new print publication 3D Metal Printing magazine, developed with MecklerMedia, which hits shelves next spring.  Altogether, this gives ad buyers over 1.5 million unique visitors per month, 500,000 social media contacts, and what MecklerMedia believes will be the largest magazine readership worldwide.

Alan M. Mecker, Chairman and CEO of MecklerMedia Corporation, said of the purchase and ad network, “The purchase of 3DPrint.com combined with our equity interest in 3DPrintingIndustry.com and our 12 international 3D Printing trade shows (and growing) makes MecklerMedia the most significant media company covering additive manufacturing worldwide. We are thrilled that the Krassensteins’ great staff of writers will continue to work with us and help expand 3DPrint.com.”

Meckler continued, “We are very pleased that the noted news site 3DPrintingIndustry.com will be joining in our new advertising network which includes 3DPrint.com and additional publications. We will be able to offer a wide array of unique advertising packages which includes exposure to over 1.5 million unique visitors monthly, over 100,000 email newsletter subscribers, and over 500,000 social media followers of the various publications associated with our advertising network.”
