CMPi buys National Venue Show

CMP Information, owners of International Confex and Conference Blue & Green, has bought The National "Venue": Show. Duncan Reid, event director for International Confex, will take on direct responsibility for managing and integrating The National Venue Show alongside his current responsibilities for Confex. “The purchase of The National Venue Show further enhances CMPi’s offering to UK event buyers,” he says. “We now own the two strongest exhibitions in the UK events industry calendar and the NVS’s Birmingham location further strengthens our proposition in the Midlands and the North. The September timing of the show also complements Confex’ February position and the integrated approach will ensure that the portfolio will become the leading information provider for UK "meetings": and event buyers.” For his part, Stephen Richards, NVS managing director says he is delighted that CMPi’s resources will be brought to bear on the show. “I will be working hard with the new owners to make sure that all the event values, built up over our development period, are built upon and enhanced.”
