Accountex acquired by Diversified
Diversified communications have acquired Accountex, the annual national exhibition for accountants and finance directors, from PRYSM group.
Diversified will run the 2016 event in conjunction with PRYSM with Scott Hider remaining as the event director.
"The 2016 Accountex is set to grow significantly again and demand to meet the business leaders of the accountancy industry as high as ever," said Hider.
Accountex is the latest addition to Diversified communications' growing network of media events.
Diversified communications UK has grown from holding a couple of events and a magazine to now organising 13 trade shows, ranging from casual dining to coaches and buses.
"We are delighted to be adding Accountex to our portfolio, we have no plans for major changes, we like what PRYSM has created and we know the formula is popular with the exhibitors and visitors alike. We hope to add our own extensive expertise to a successful team that have built a highly credible event over the last four years," said Carsten Holm, MD of Diversified Communications UK about the acquisition.
For the last few years AccountingWEB has been the media partner of the Accountex exhibition.
