PAL Media promises a new event for 2019 as business booms

FOLLOWING a year of dramatic expansion, Skip Hire and Waste magazine’s owners, PAL Media, who also run the Waste expo shows for the waste and recycling industry, have announced the event is on hiatus for 2019.

Instead plans are afoot for PAL Media to organise an exciting waste industry networking event for later in the year.

The announcement comes after the company acquired its second publication, ToolBUSINESS+HIRE, a trade publication for the tool and construction industry.

“Following a period of growth, we felt the time was right to branch out and expand the media team’s off erings in other sectors,” Dan Daintry, one of PAL Media’s Directors explained. “Fortunately we were able to secure the highly regarded and well established ToolBUSINESS+HIRE.

“However, a second publication is currently taking a lot of our focus, which means we don’t feel we’d be able to do a Waste 19 show justice and give the industry the show it deserves. Therefore, we are scaling back our commitments and

putting the show on hiatus.

“We will, however, be organising a smaller event focused on allowing the sector to meet and network. We will be releasing details of this event in the coming months, so stay tuned.”

ToolBUSINESS+HIRE is a cross-channel publishing solution which produces 10 magazines a year. It is aimed at anyone who sells or hires out tools, whether for the retail or construction sectors.
