In October 2016 we announced our acquisition of the Clinical, Cosmetic and Reconstructive Expo in the UK. The event attracts a serious audience of registered healthcare professionals. It is supported by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and the British Cosmetic Dermatology Group (BCDG).
We have a very strong presence in the Belgian healthcare sector, with a huge potential to expand in other countries. Over the past two years we have built a national portfolio by acquiring Expo60+ in Mechelen, the top event in Flanders about care for the elderly, and Healthcare Brussels, focused on residential and home care. We have now merged these two events as Health & Care in Ghent and launched a parallel event Soins & Santé in Namur, the capital of Wallonia.
Finally, we acquired Dentex, the Brussels-based event for dentistry and dental care. We will invest further in healthcare events as this is a dynamic sector that will continue to grow.
