“I am delighted with the success of the acquisition and the event expertise that VOS has bought to TMG,” said Executive Director of TMG, Dave King. “The launch of Telegraph Bespoke and Telegraph Business Events is another natural extension for our brand, driving new revenue streams, which will continue to bring greater value to a growing Telegraph audience with both a consumer and trade focus.”
Damian Norman, MD of Telegraph Events (pictured), added: “The past 18 months as part of TMG have been very successful and testament to why we were so keen to join The Telegraph portfolio. We have already secured a number of launch events for 2015 and look forward to continuing this success with our newly launched divisions, attracting both new Telegraph readers as well as strong new business revenues.”
