Messe Frankfurt has expanded its international network with the acquisition of Forest Exhibitions Ltd., which will become its UK subsidiary.
“It’s important for our company to promote commercial exchanges at European and global level in our 30trade fair locations around the world. The UK is an attractive trade fair and export market for our international customers. Another important strategic factor for us today is the proximity to our British partners and organisers who are regular visitors to Frankfurt,” explains Wolfgang Marzin, President and Chief Executive Officer at Messe Frankfurt.”
In the last financial year, more than 560 exhibitors and approximately 15,300 visitors came from the UK to trade fairs in Frankfurt. Former Event Director at Forest Exhibitions Ltd, Simon Albert, will become Managing Director of the new subsidiary. He succeeds Rob Sherwood, who will continue to represent Messe Frankfurt in international sales with his company, Sherwood Event Services.
