This is Northstar’s second purchase this month. On April 7 it purchased Singapore-based Web In Travel in a deal valued under $5 million. In March it purchased two Travel Weekly publications and an event organizer in Singapore and China.

As part of the deal, MTS president and CEO Michael J. Pierson will produce the event in 2015 and 2016.
