MA Business (MAB), part of the Mark Allen Group (MAG), completed its acquisition of three clusters of international conferences from London-based Industry Dynamics, today.
The well-established international conferences MAB acquired include The European Manufacturing Summit and The North American Manufacturing Strategies Summit, alongside a number of specialist sector conferences in Food, Packaging and Pharmaceutical sectors.
The Industry Dynamics’ team responsible for production and delivery of these events will transfer to MAG’s headquarters in Herne Hill from 1 August 2016.
Peter Knutton, managing director of MA Business said: “These highly regarded international exhibitions perfectly complement MAB’s established manufacturing, engineering and management brands.
“In addition, the transferring ID team brings with it much sought-after expertise in overseas international events organisation to the group. We look forward to working with the team to develop the existing conferences and launch new events over the coming years.”
MAG chairman Mark Allen: “It has been a straightforward and amicable acquisition which we are pleased to have completed so quickly. Adding these events greatly strengthens MAB’s international portfolio in line with MAG’s stated strategic growth plans.”
