CMP Information acquires energy event

10 October 2007

CMP Information has announced the acquisition of the event, e2 – Energy Solutions Expo, the event that ran alongside the company's other events in Working Buildings Week held last week at Olympia - Total Workplace Management; M&E – The Buildings Services Event; and AMPS Power Expo last week.

Simon Parker, Group Director, CMP Information explains the decision behind the acquisition: “Energy Solutions Expo fits naturally within our current portfolio of events. Rising energy costs, climate change and energy legislation continue to ensure that energy and how businesses can use it in a responsible, effective and sustainable way are dominant pressures on industry. Our key audiences of facilities managers and building service engineers are increasingly finding that energy management is a significant part of their role. By acquiring Energy Solutions Expo and having all the Working Buildings Week events managed by one dedicated team we will be able to considerably strengthen these highly successful events.”

Richard Pegler of Energy Events UK comments: “Energy management is already a board level issue and the introduction of legislation which states that commercial building stock must reduce their emissions by 22% to meet Kyoto targets only makes this topic more pertinent. By addressing these and other key market issues Energy Solutions Expo has grown to become the UK’s fastest growing energy event. This acquisition will enable the event to be taken to the next level with CMP Information’s market experience, significant resources and dedicated team managing the complete portfolio of Working Buildings Week events.”
