Resource Creative provides creative graphic services to the exhibition, events and retail markets in the UK and Europe. It already works on shows for key Melville GES clients including UBM and Clarion.
Resource Creative will merge with Melville GES’s existing London-based operation and move to a new location on site at Excel London.
Jason Popp, executive vice president of GES, said: "I believe that Resource Creative’s capabilities are a perfect fit for GES as we continue to expand our infrastructure and capabilities across the globe. The acquisition accelerates the growth of our expanding graphics operation in London and augments our growing presence in continental Europe."
Resource Creative heads David O’Connor and John Beake will continue to work with the company. O’Connor will become managing director of Melville GES’ Amsterdam operation, while Beake has been appointed general manager for Melville GES’ London graphics team.
O’Connor said: "John and I are delighted to join the Melville GES team. We remain committed to serving our customers to a high standard and, by combining our capabilities with those of Melville GES, we can now offer a full range of services to help our clients achieve their objectives."
