18 MARCH 2019, LONDON, UK: Terrapinn [www.terrapinn.com], the global events company, announced today that it has acquired Accounting Business Expo [https://www.accountingbusiness.com.au] and Accountech Live [https://www.accountech.live], the two market leading exhibitions in Australia for the Accountancy and Finance Management profession.
Terrapinn’s CEO, Greg Hitchen, said: “Accounting Business Expo and Accountech.Live are world-class events in terms of scale and quality of content and bolster our global portfolio of accounting and finance expos. Terrapinn is already a world leader in this sector, with expos in the United States, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Dubai and Johannesburg.”
Accounting Business Expo and Accountech Live were acquired from National Media [http://nationalmedia.com.au], a leading Australian exhibitions organiser. Managing Director, Mark Harvey, said: “With their impressive track record, we are confident Terrapinn will continue what has been a remarkable growth story for these events.”
He said: “With the level of innovation and change within the accounting and finance profession, there is strong demand for quality education – we’re proud that these events have established a key role in educating the sector, through networking, learning and business creation opportunities. This new and exciting partnership provides opportunities for the experience gained with Accounting Business Expo and Accountech.Live to benefit Terrapinn’s stable of international events.”
Event portfolio director, Laura Venables, said: “We set out right from the start with a mission to shine a spotlight on the people, products, companies, trends and business models that are redefining both accounting firms and the finance function within Australian businesses. Accounting Business Expo and more recently, Accountech.Live have become pillars of the industry and continue to be the only truly independently run events for the sector – I’m proud to say we delivered on that mission. When the opportunity presented itself, we felt the time was right to handover the events to a new organiser with global expertise, that is better resourced to take the events to exciting new heights.” She continued, “I am confident the events are in good hands.”
