Reed Exhibitions Brazil Buys Oil and Gas Show

Reed Exhibitions Brazil has made another acquisition, this time purchasing the Santos Offshore Oil & Gas Expo from AGS3 Promocoes e Eventos LTDA. The show will be grouped with five other energy events in the region, and the company says it now has 16 oil and gas and renewable energy events globally.

The Santos Offshore Oil & Gas Expo launched in 2007 and has been held in Santos City in Sao Paulo State. This October, the show will occupy 7,000 net square meters of exhibit space and is projected to attract 18,000 attendees.

According to Reed, the company has grown 20 percent since its debut. Terms of the deal were not released.

Early in the year, Reed Exhibitions Brazil acquired Multiplus Fairs and Events—also based in Sao Paulo State—an organizer of ethanol manufacturing events.

Reed Exhibitions’ Brazil group has become a significant organization in the region, now producing 55 events on a two-year cycling basis.
