    Sold again. Welcome to Endeavor Business Media !!

    Did you guys know that HTALK will be 20 years old on May 15th 2020? Time flies doesn't it?

    That's right, we have been sold again along with a HUGE chunk of other digital properties...

    First it was Don Sleeth who sold out to Build Central in 2005. Penton bought us in 2006 if memory serves then in December 2017 Penton was purchased by Informa, a UK company. As of the 12th of this month we are now owned by Endeavor Business Media out of Wisconsin.

    Am sure it will be a smooth transition as we are keeping all of the business management team that started with us on the Penton purchase in 2006.

    I am glad to hear H-talk will be owned by a USA corporation...

    Given most of the posters and threads are about USA stuff... hard to imagine our best interests would be served by a foreign entity...

    THX for the heads up Dad!

    Does this mean that the green monster dude at the top will be redesigned with a different number of fingers again?

    Thank you for informing us, Dad.

    I also hope the like button gets fixed. I hate wasting electrons to repost to say "Like."
