Media-Mergers’ Press Release 20 September 2016
In a deal brokered by Martin Wright of Media-Mergers (www.mediamergers.co.uk) The London Stationery Show, the UK’s most important trade exhibition for the paper and writing products industry, its consumer awareness campaign National Stationery Week, and Stationery Magazine have been acquired by Ocean Media Group, a leading provider of exhibitions, events, awards and specialist publications.
Founded by Chris Leonard-Morgan of LMC Media in 2011, the London Stationery Show marked its sixth show in April this year. During this time the show has trebled in size, attracting a growing number of suppliers every year, many of whom do not exhibit elsewhere, and visitors from across the retail spectrum, including companies from over 40 countries around the world. The 2017 show is on course to continue its upward trajectory with over 85% of the 2016 stand space already booked.
The 2017 London Stationery Show (www.stationeryshow.co.uk) will take place at the Business Design Centre on 25 – 26 April and National Stationery Week (www.nationalstationeryweek.com) from 24 – 30 April.
