Lee & Thompson acts for CloserStill Media

Lee & Thompson’s Corporate team has acted for leading exhibition organiser CloserStill Media on various recent acquisitions, helping the company to significantly grow its portfolio.

CloserStill acquired Technology For Marketing (TFM), eCommerce Expo and the Care Show as well as Top 50 Companies, from UBM. CloserStill has also partnered with Graeme Howe and Justin Opie via a joint venture company to run the technology portfolio.

Marketing director of CloserStill, Alexia Maycock, said: “This is an exciting investment for us all. Between us, the team now running TFM and eCommerce expo have been responsible for running some of the UK’s fastest growing technology events over the last two decades. Our combined experience, sector knowledge and significant commercial and marketing resources will be focussed on delivering for both exhibitors and the audiences for these powerful brands.”

Media director of CloserStill, Michael Westcott, said the existing teams on all the events will be joining the company and “we look forward to working with them to take these events to the next level”.
