UKIP sold its aviation event division to Reed Exhibitions

Fusion Corporate Partners is pleased to the sale of the Aviation Division of international events organiser UKIP Media & Events to Reed Elsevier Group plc subsidiary Reed Exhibitions.

The five annual Exhibitions included in the deal are:

Aerospace Testing Expo - March - Munich, Germany
Aircraft Interiors Expo - April - Hamburg, Germany
Aircraft Interiors Asia Expo - September - Hong Kong
Aerospace Design Expo - November - Anaheim, California, USA
Aerospace Testing North America - November - Anaheim, California, USA

The world leading events focus on the specialised Aircraft Interiors and Aerospace Design and Testing markets and are a strong strategic fit with Reed Exhibitions such as Asian Aerospace International Expo and Congress, Helitech and Aviation Expo Latin America, and will form a key part of Reed Exhibitions’ strategic plan to be a major global player in the Aerospace market.

Having worked with our client for a number of years this deal provides the best solution for Mr Robinson, releasing significant capital whilst retaining the highly successful Automotive and Transport Expos in UKIP Media & Events. Fusion acted exclusively for Directors Tony Robinson and Rob Kirke in the transaction.

The partner responsible for this transaction was Paul Slight pslight@fusioncorp.co.uk.
