Clarion and IIR finalising deal

IIR Exhibitions is close to completing the sale of its consumer shows to Clarion Events.

IIR Exhibitions is close to completing the sale of its consumer shows to Clarion Events. The sale of The Daily Telegraph House & Gardens Fair, which took place at Olympia from 28 June-1 July and Spirit of Christmas which runs at Olympia from 1-4 November is in “advanced stages of negotiation”. “Consumer events take a different style of management and our main core competence is business to business shows. We will now grow this side of the business through acquisition and launches,” IIR managing director Caroline Eden said. “Clarion is the ideal company to take over our consumer portfolio.” IIR Exhibitions had considered floating as a conference company, but that idea has been shelved.
