Clarion takes control of ATE trade shows

Clarion Events has completed its acquisition of Amusement Trade Exhibitions (ATE), the exhibition, conference, publishing and services subsidiary of the British Amusement Catering Trades Association (BACTA.)

Clarion gains a host of UK and international events, including the Amusement Trade Exhibition International (ATEi) and International Casino Exhibition (ICE) shows which both take place at Earls Court from 24-26 January 2006.

Clarion managing director Simon Kimble said ATE was a world leader in the amusement, gambling and betting industries and Clarion could benefit hugely from its skills.

The deal comes weeks after Clarion acquired the NEC's in-house organising arm, Centre Exhibitions.
