WORLD - International conference organiser and media group Euromoney has acquired two international grain trading conferences: Global Grain Geneva and Global Grain Asia.  

The gross asset value of the two companies acquired is put at US$1.12m.

The Geneva conference, held annually in November, has grown since its inception in 2003 to a conference attracting 1,000 delegates from more than 50 countries.

Global Grain Asia is a new event designed to serve agricultural grain and oilseed traders in the Asia-Pacific region. It launches in March in Singapore.

Euromoney Chairman Padraic Fallon said he was “delighted” to make the acquisitions.

“Euromoney has a successful record of acquiring conferences and developing them into fast-growing global event businesses,” said Fallon. “The company expects that this move will likely have neutral earning potential in 2012, however it is anticipated that earnings will grow thereafter.”
