Today, Greenlit Content has announced the acquisition of trade show series Casual Connect. Casual Connect's multiple, yearly events will continue, with event founder Jessica Tams and her events team joining Greenlit.

In addition, Greenlit-owned GameDaily.biz reports that Casual Connect's written and video media content platform Gamesauce will be merged with the site under GameDaily.biz's editorial banner.

"I've followed the Casual Connect event series for more than a decade, and I've been extremely impressed by its international expansion," said Greenlit Content CEO John Benyamine. "Having Jessica and Casual Connect join with Greenlit Content is truly an honor. This is huge for Greenlit's global expansion efforts. Both Casual Connect and the industry have been evolving quickly. We feel that we have an incredible opportunity to define what an event series really looks like in 2019 for the games industry."

Casual Connect aims to continue to expand into 2019 under its new ownership with upcoming events, a planned rebranding, and the editorial direction of GameDaily.biz.
