ITE Group plc acquires Fin-Mark Srl
The British company ITE Group plc, an exhibition industry leader in new and emerging markets, announced the acquisition of the Italian company Fin-Mark Srl., an exhibition organiser. Fin-Mark Srl. runs the renowned Aqua-Therm brand exhibition in the heating, ventilation, conditioning, plumbing and water supply sectors. Aqua-Therm is held annually in Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and since last year in Azerbaijan.
Commenting upon the deal, Executive Director of ITE Group plc Mr. Edward Strachan said, "Aqua-Therm is a leading exhibition brand in the field of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing and water supply. This brand proved to be very effective and is trusted. ITE Group has extensive experience in organizing specialized exhibitions, and thus introducing the Azerbaijani market, which have great potential, to many new companies. It worth noting that over the past few years, the exposition of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, plumbing and water supply (HVAC) was part of the BakuBuild construction exhibition, the largest event in the region. Therefore, our experience and confidence of our participants to this event ensures the presence of the best brands and innovative new products of the market at the exhibition. Moreover, another fact that will contribute to the success of the exhibition this year is its venue. The Aqua-Therm Baku 2010 will take place at the Baku Expo Exhibitions and Conferences Centre, the largest and most modern exhibition place in the region. Its optimum location in relation to the airport and the downtown, as well as developed infrastructure and convenient pavilions make Baku Expo Centre an ideal venue for Aqua-Therm. Thus, the Aqua-Therm Baku exhibition will be another step toward the implementation of ITE's plans to bring new business opportunities to Azerbaijan and develop new exhibition opportunities.
The Aqua-Therm Baku 2010 will be another event in the autumn season of Iteca Caspian, and will be held on 20-23 October at the Baku-Expo International Exhibitions and Conferences Centre alongside the BakuBuild exhibition. It will gather professionals from two rapidly developing sectors - construction and HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Plumbing and Water Supply), which enables effective cooperation for companies in need of partners. Such diversity will allow visitors and specialists to see a range of proposals.
