The Comexposium Group, one of the world’s leading event organizers, is acquiring the Digital Marketing division (dmg events Digital Marketing) of dmg events, which operates the market-leading ad:tech, iMedia and Digital Collective series of B2B events in the United States, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
JEGI CLARITY (www.jegiclarity.com), the leading independent investment bank for the global media, information, marketing, software and tech-enabled services sectors, headquartered in New York, NY, represented dmg events in this transaction.
This strategic acquisition complements the Mobile Media Summit (MMS) network of events established in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, London, Miami, Las Vegas, Barcelona and Cannes, acquired in February 2015. JEGI CLARITY represented Mobile Motion, founder and organizer of Mobile Media Summit, in its sale to Comexposium.
Paran Johar, CEO & Founder of Mobile Media Summit, and Matt Denton, President of dmg events Digital Marketing, will be in charge of these events retaining the dmg events Digital Marketing team.
Thanks to this acquisition, Comexposium will benefit from an additional range of digital marketing and e-commerce events on four continents.
The combination of the ad:tech, iMedia, Digital Collective and Mobile Media Summit events will allow the group to offer an essential network of events dedicated to the digital marketing, mobile and e-commerce industries, aimed at major brands, influencers, communication agencies and the world’s most innovative companies in the sector.
For Renaud Hamaide, CEO of Comexposium: “Digital marketing is a rapidly growing sector which falls within the Group’s international development strategy, and increases a portfolio of leading events which match our existing events: the Mobile Media Summit, Digital Marketing One-to-One, E-Commerce and E-Commerce One-to-One. It will also allow Comexposium to become the world leader in terms of digital marketing and e-commerce events.”
Many thanks to the JEGI CLARITY team for all your efforts in getting the sale of our Digital Marketing division to the finish line – a great outcome delivered on time and exceeding our expectations. Another successful transaction in the long-standing and valued relationship we enjoy with JEGI CLARITY.
Paul Sykes, CFO, dmg Information
