Clarion Events Ltd


Clarion Events Ltd

Clarion Events organises more than 200 events (a mixture of exhibitions, conferences and seated events) annually across the globe. More than 12,000 companies trust us with their custom each year and over 700,000 people give their valuable time to visit our events. This success has come from identifying high-value, niche audiences in difficult-to-reach markets and then building them into market-leading products. Current turnover is more than £80m and profits have grown fourfold since undertaking an MBO in 2004. In that time Clarion Events has completed 12 acquisitions, consistently launched new events and entered into three joint venture partnerships.
