Investment Strategy

With underlying growth in both the trade exhibition market and in the end markets of each of the exhibitions, the investment represents a compelling opportunity to build a pre-eminent media business. The management team has a clear plan to develop the quality and content of each of the events and will selectively develop new exhibitions, both in the UK and overseas, as well as consider strategic acquisitions.

Duncan Kirk - CEO

"We wanted an investment partner that shared our vision to create a distinctive and dynamic business in this vibrant and fast-growing sector of the media industry. Apiary is providing the support we need to build a market-leading organiser of world class trade exhibitions."
