Dmg events has purchased Quartz Coatings, a company that specializes in paint and coatings exhibitions, primarily in emerging countries.
The acquisition includes five painting and coating events Quartz owns and organizes in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Mexico and Morocco. Quartz already manages dmg’s large
st event in the sector, the Middle East Coatings Show, scheduled March 10-12 at the Dubai (United Arab Emirates) International Convention & Exhibition Center.
"The coatings sector is a fast-growing specialist market that complements our construction events,” says Geoff Dickinson, CEO of dmg events. “It allows us to develop our existing Middle East Coatings Show and is in line with our desire to build our presence in Southeast Asia and Latin America through geo-cloning and strategic acquisitions.”
Quartz also owns eight publications, including two industry-leading titles, the monthly Polymers Paint & Colour Journal and the bimonthly AsiaPacific Coatings Journal.
