January 22, 2009, Las Vegas, Nevada
Reed Business Information (www.reedbusiness.com/us) and AEC Daily (www.aecdaily.com) have announced a joint strategic partnership, officially launching at the 2009 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas.
AEC Daily will produce educational programs for Reed’s architectural, engineering and construction publications and products in printed, live and electronic formats. Initially, the educational offerings of AEC Daily and Reed will remain independent, but the intent is to integrate them into the most authoritative education program in the industry.
AEC Daily will add the many Reed marketing services to its product list, thereby serving the complete promotional needs of its clients. In turn, Reed will offer an enhanced educational marketing opportunity to its client base. The biggest winner will be the building product manufacturing community, which will have access to the best integrated marketing program in the industry.
“We will increase our reach through North America's largest business-to-business information provider while Reed will gain the expertise of the industry’s leading provider of free online education,” said Jeff Rice, President of AEC Daily. “It’s a perfect fit for both organizations.”
AEC Daily currently has over 230 courses that are recognized or approved by 17 different organizations and several new courses are added monthly. Each one meets or exceeds the educational requirement for most construction professionals in North America.
