Old-school publisher takes over new-fangled festival.
Sounds like changes are coming to that staple of the Silicon Alley social calendar, Internet Week New York. Crain Communications–the company behind publications like AdAge and Crain’s New York–has made a “strategic investment” in the festival. What’s more, the publishing conglomerate will be taking a role in the event itself.
An unlikely marriage, to say the least.
According to an announcement, Crain and the Internet Week team will “grow the festival under a shared vision,” but Crain will be taking over day-to-day management.
