Western Business Exhibitions announces acquisition of the Facilities Management Exhibition from Easyfairs UK

4th May 2016:
Western Business Exhibitions (WBE) today announces the acquisition of two trade shows from Easyfairs UK, including Facilities Management (incorporating Cleaning).

Facilities Management, incorporating Cleaning is dedicated to facilities professionals in all sectors and delivers what the industry needs, exactly where it is needed in the heart of the UK.

The next edition of the event will run at The NEC (21-23rd March 2017).

Speaking about the acquisition, WBE's Events Director Tim Else commented:

"The opportunity to acquire the Facilities Management Show is fantastic. Having co-located The Health & Safety Event with Facilities Management since its inception in 2014, we have seen first-hand the exceptional professionalism of the team at Easyfairs as they carefully established an event which now has such an exciting future. The new team behind Facilities Management will develop the event in collaboration with its exhibitors and partners, and look forward to taking the event into its next period of growth."

Matt Benyon, Managing Director of Easyfairs UK & Global, adds:

"Easyfairs UK & Global is in a period of substantial and ambitious growth, and the sale of these events enables us to focus on the growth and profitability of our large portfolio events as well as new sizeable acquisitions. We have worked closely with Western Business Exhibitions over the years, and I am therefore confident that it is ideally placed to manage the next phase of growth for the Maintec and Facilities Management events."
