QMDI acquires stake in UK renewables show




QMDI acquires stake in UK renewables show

Major acquisition marks entry onto global events arena

 

Qatar MICE Development Institute (QMDI) has acquired a majority stake in All-Energy, the UK’s largest renewable energy exhibition and conference, with plans to transform the event into the global leader in the renewable energy exhibition market.

“The investment in All-Energy is very strategic,” said Matthew Meredith, CEO of QMDI. “We are looking forward to this year’s ‘hub’ Aberdeen event in Scotland, and to launching events in other continents, starting with the launch of All-Energy Australia in Melbourne in October this year,”

 

The investment in All-Energy is testament to QMDI’s active role as an international events organiser, and its ambition to develop an expanding portfolio of knowledge-led products globally across different industry sectors.

 

The award-winning All-Energy event has been held since 2001 as a partnership between Media Generation Events Ltd (MGE) and Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC). “We are delighted that the deal with QMDI has been finalised,” said Paul Stott, managing director, MGE. “We are a comparatively small company and recognised that the time had come to look for strong investment in the show to develop it to its full potential, and to launch the series of overseas events that will now be spun out.”

 

QMDI says it plans to grow its portfolio of events products further over the coming year, with more joint ventures and acquisitions set to be announced.
