Adhesion Group is a Paris-based exhibitions business that Euromoney has owned for more than 20 years.
Vinisud that is its principal event is the international trade fair for Mediterranean wines attracts as much as 1,650 exhibitors from nations around the Mediterranean. The World Bulk Wine Exhibition operates in Amsterdam every November and is the number one event for purchasers of bulk wine.
The deal also includes three important events namely the World Wine Meetings that are actually one-to-one events.
Last year Composium had launched Vino Vision Paris that is the International Cool Climate Wine Exhibition.
Vinisud and VinoVision’s teams would combine their skills to better address the requirements of the wine industry in a few trade shows including VinoVisionParis from 12th to 14th February 2018 and also Vinisud in Montepllier that would be running from 12th to 18th February.
Comexposium that had acquired the wine events collection from Euromoney as part of its long-term growth strategy would be utilizing its new portfolio to bring together industry stalwarts from the northern and southern wine regions of France for the upcoming trade events expanding their overall reach in the wine sector on both national and international scale.
Christopher Fordham who is the Managing Director of Euromoney, Corporate Development said that the wine sector is not strategic for Eurimoney and they are glad to have found a new owner for Comexposium who is keen to invest in the sector.
