ALM’s Real Estate Media Group Partners with Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS to Create SIOR LIVE Program

NEW YORK – April 8, 2013 – ALM’s Real Estate Media Group today announced a strategic alliance with the Society of Industrial and Office REALTORS (SIOR) in which the two organizations will collaborate on the creation of a new media program focused around the SIOR 2013 Spring World Conference.

Starting April 15th, ALM will produce and distribute a daily email newsletter called “SIOR LIVE” that will be distributed to more than 50,000 commercial real estate executives each business day. Each installment will feature interviews with industry thought leaders, SIOR executives, and breaking news and analysis relating to the office and industrial real estate sectors. In addition, there will be updates on the SIOR 2013 Spring World Conference, which will take place May 1-4, 2013, at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa near Palm Desert, Calif.

During the SIOR conference, ALM’s editors will provide live reports via Twitter and, ALM’s industry-leading Web site for commercial real estate industry news and information. ALM’s editors will also host live interviews with some of the commercial real estate industry’s top executives, which will be streamed on, and on the exhibit floor at the conference.

Following the SIOR conference, SIOR LIVE will continue to be published daily with post-event analysis, exclusive interviews and other wrap-up coverage. The SIOR LIVE media program will conclude on May 15th.

“The idea behind this unique 30-day media program is to leverage’s award-winning editorial platform with the power of SIOR’s brand and the significance of their annual conference in order to produce valuable content that will be useful to commercial real estate professionals,” said Michael Desiato, Vice President & Group Publisher of the Real Estate Media Group.

According to Desiato, ALM is offering a limited number of custom content and advertising packages as part of the SIOR LIVE program. Those packages are available on a “first come, first served” basis.
