dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa has acquired five exhibitions, and an associated publication, focused on the construction and transport infrastructure sectors from South African media company Hypenica. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The events, African Construction Expo, Cape Construction Expo and KZN Construction Expo are a natural fit within dmg events’ existing construction portfolio. African Ports Evolution Forum and African Ports Evolution Forum – West Africa add a complementary transport element to the company’s existing customer base across industries such as construction, mining, power and logistics. Finally, Concrete Trends and its digital platform http://www.concrete.tv gives dmg events an established channel through which to support the events as well as deliver content and up to date business information all year round.
Matt Denton, President of dmg events Middle East, Asia & Africa, said, “We know Africa is a key geography for the future growth of our business, as well as those of our exhibitors and visitors. Adding these five events and the accompanying respected trade media to our portfolio is an excellent way to expand our regional reach, enabling us to leverage our sector expertise in new markets”.
KZN Construction Expo will be the first event to take place under new ownership, with the exhibition set to kick off in Durban, South Africa, on February 7 2018, followed by the African Construction Expo in Johannesburg in May.
