The events industry, more than any other, was crushed during COVID, but has since rebounded with gusto. Events are growing rapidly and commanding premium M&A prices. The events industry includes trade shows, fairs, conferences, destination management services, and exhibit/event production and management. You will benefit from working with our M&A team, which has represented Informa, Massachusetts General Hospital, IDG, Smart Energy Decisions and Advertising Week. Our investment bankers have had M&A and operating experience at prominent firms, such as Gartner, CMP, Penton Media, Cygnus Business Media and Hanley Wood.
