The Artexis-easyFairs Group has partnered with Spain’s Bilbao Exhibition Centre (BEC) to host a series of industrial maintenance shows in the Basque region.
The initial project will see the easyFairs show brands Maintenance and Pumps & Valves co-located alongside BEC’s industrial products, technologies and services exhibitions in May 2015.
BEC currently organises an event comprising three brands covering industrial technologies and services: Ferroforma, Subcontratación and Fitmaq. The next edition will be held on 26-29 May 2015.
“Maintenance and Pumps & Valves will offer our visitors two additional highly relevant and specialised topics,” said Xabier Basañez, director general, BEC.
“With these and many other brands the Artexis-easyFairs Group has established an excellent track record in delivering industrial shows that meet the needs of professional communities.”
“Maintenance and Pumps & Valves make a perfect match for these exhibitions and will attract additional visitors,” said Basañez.
The Artexis-easyFairs Group currently runs its Maintenance shows in the UK, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Austria, Switzerland and Poland, and its Pumps & Valves shows take place in the major port terminals of Antwerp and Rotterdam.
“We have successfully established the easyFairs brand in Spain with four highly successful shows in Madrid, and we are delighted to have signed this joint venture with BEC, which enables us to extend our presence and the easyFairs concept to northern Spain,” said Artexis-easyFairs group chief executive officer Eric Everard.
“The Bilbao Exhibition Centre is a fabulous venue and we look forward to working with Xabier and his team on further projects.”
