n. An intermediary who gathers and coordinates the products and services offered by intermediaries who specialize in specific areas.

Example Citation:
"As place and time become increasingly irrelevant in the networked economy . . . specialised mediators will offer better products and services at lower costs than full-service mediators. But in doing so, customers will be faced with a dizzying array of specialised product and service providers. Mohanbir Sawhney argues that this will in turn result in the emergence of 'metamediaries', who will reassemble the offerings into bundles that are logically related from the customer's perspective."
