Redhill, Surrey, UK – dmg world media has acquired GasTech and the European Autumn Gas Conference (EAGC) from Turret Rai plc. The acquisitions expand dmg’s oil and gas portfolio to eight events and furthers the company’s strategy of extending the division into new international markets.
GasTech is a biennial event, with the 2005 edition scheduled March 14–17 in Bilbao, Spain. It is expected to span roughly 178,000 square feet of exhibit space. EAGC 2005, an annual conference, will take place November at Excel in London.
Management of both events will be transferred to dmg’s Business Media International division, based in Redhill, after the 2005 show. The B2B division was recently restructured to combine activities on both sides of the Atlantic.
The purchase is the sixth business acquisition for dmg world media in 2004. Reach Nick Ratcliffe at +44 1737 855046 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
