Strengthening Global Presence and an End-to-End Offering

Clarion Events - one of the world’s leading event organisers - has announced the acquisition of the PennWell Corporation, in an exciting international deal which will have far-reaching effects in the global smart energy events and publishing space.

The acquisition brings together two of the industry’s most well-respected names to create one of the largest events companies in the world. A number of the key Power & Energy events which were produced by PennWell will be integrated into Clarion Energy’s Power and Energy Series as part of this acquisition.

The integration of these events strengthens the Clarion Energy-produced Power & Energy Series which already comprises the ‘Utility Week’ events taking place across Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe. The portfolio is further complimented by Future Energy East Africa & Future Energy Nigeria completing the list.

Positive steps have already been taken following the acquisition, including developing the PennWell-produced POWERGEN Africa event. As well as this, POWER-GEN Africa will be co-located alongside African Utility Week taking place in Cape Town, South Africa in 2019.

Speaking on behalf of Clarion Events’ South Africa Office, Spintelligent, Managing Director David Ashdown said, “As we already run the leading power & energy events on the continent, the addition of POWERGEN Africa to our offering is an exciting prospect for everyone involved. We look forward to delivering what will be an unequalled series of events to the African market.
