Emap has acquired Healthcare
Conferences, an events and publishing company specialising in the UK
Launched in February 2003 by
managing director Gavin Johnstone, the company runs a series of independent
events for the healthcare sector including Managing Long Term Conditions, held
at Harrogate International Centre and Primary Care Live at Excel London and
Martin Wright, managing director
of Media Mergers, which brokered the deal with events consultant and Media
Mergers’ own strategic partner Tfconnect, says Emap was impressed with the
company’s business model, which allows it to draw revenue from both conference
delegates and exhibitors. “This is an excellent business and its principal
event, Managing Long Term Conditions, has experienced double digit annual growth
since its launch,” he says.
Managing Long Term Conditions
extends to two days next year on 15-16 April.
