Mercury Events Acquired by Ocean Media Group

UK based Mercury events have recently been purchased by Ocean Media Group. The company produce shows such as the Baby and Toddlers Shows and the Wedding Fairs. The acquisition will see two of the UK’s largest wedding shows organisers for the consumer market come together. They will now operate large scale events across the whole of the UK.

The Managing Director of Mercury Events Ltd, Matt Miller, will now join Ocean Media and will be taking control of the consumer division as their new Managing Director. When asked about the purchase Miller said that, “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to combine the analysis, expertise and best practice which sits within both organisations to develop an extensive set of wedding and baby shows that offer superb value to all our exhibitors and to every visitor,” said Miller. “We will be working very closely with our partners in both industries to grow the market to everyone’s benefit.”

The CEO of Ocean Media who oversaw the deal added that, “This exciting acquisition significantly reinforces our position as the number one player in the wedding market. As well as adding strength and depth to our teams, this purchase creates an ideal platform to improve and grow our portfolio of consumer wedding shows.”

Miller added: “Our values and vision for how we operate are very much the same. We’re aiming to serve our industries with an emphasis on innovation, integrity, and with a single-minded philosophy to produce shows that add genuine value to their markets every time they run.”
