Canon Communications Acquires Two German Trade Shows Focused on Automotive and Machine Construction Industries

Oct 09, 2007

Los Angeles, CA (October _, 2007) � Canon Communications, the leading publisher, trade show producer, and digital media company for the world's $3 trillion advanced, technology-based manufacturing industry, today announced that it has acquired two leading trade shows in Germany, INTERPART and SURFACTS, as part of its expansion in the European market.

INTERPART is the leading trade show for manufacturers and subcontractors in the automotive, electronics, medical, and machine construction industries in Southern Germany while SURFACTS serves European companies providing mechanical, chemical, or thermal surface treatment, finishing technology, galvanizing technology or vacuum coating for a wide range of industries, including automotive and machine construction. The shows are co-located at Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre, in the heart of Germany�s automotive and advanced manufacturing region.

Beginning in 2008, Canon will organize a new exhibition � Medipart � that will co-locate with INTERPART and SURFACTS and include more than 100 exhibitors presenting a wide range of precision metal components, sub-assemblies, and parts for the German medical device industry. Canon will aggressively promote Medipart to its database of over 50,000 medical decision makers in Germany, and in its European Medical Device Manufacturer and Medical Device Technology publications. Canon was the first major trade show operator to offer co-located shows, which allow exhibitors to take advantage of an expanded audience by placing several different shows at the same venue.

"This investment is part of Canon's strategy of being the largest provider of trade show services to advanced, technology-based manufacturers in North America, Europe and Asia," said Charles G. McCurdy, Canon�s Chairman and CEO. "We continue to see other acquisition opportunities in Europe," he added. "However, we will also aggressively pursue organic growth in our European operations by creating new shows like Medipart and adding more co-located opportunities for our exhibitors and attendees."

"We are pleased to add these shows to the Canon family," said Kevin O�Keefe, Senior Vice-President for Canon�s Events Division. "Together with our new Medipart show, INTERPART and SURFACTS expand Canon�s presence in Europe, building on the company�s existing market footprint with our MEDTEC exhibitions in Stuttgart, Germany, as well as in Ireland and the UK. We also recently added four new shows along side MEDTEC UK, creating the UK�s largest event for advanced manufacturing."

"We are looking forward to having Canon Communications as a new international strategic partner for our technology based exhibitions," said Gerald B�se, CEO of Karlsruhe Exhibtion Center. "This new alliance confirms our strategy to develop Karlsruhe as a center for specialized trade fairs which reflects the growing strength of our region within Europe."
