London-based event organiser Clarion Events has announced the acquisition of Quartz Events, a California-based producer of invitation-only executive summits.
Russell Wilcox, Clarion Events CEO, said: “The addition of Quartz further enhances Clarion’s ability to serve our customers digitally, and deliver exciting new products and services to our existing customers. We look forward to working with the highly talented team at Quartz, to leverage our global reach and apply their proven proprietary technology to our virtual strategy.”
Quartz Events president and CEO, Toby Harris, added: “I am excited at the opportunity to further expand our reach under the Clarion umbrella. We’ve developed some innovative new ways to build audiences and grow our current markets. With Clarion’s global reach, we are well-positioned for future market growth as well. As an entrepreneur, I was drawn to Clarion because of the cultural fit and the entrepreneurial mindset within the organisation.”
Quartz Events will continue to work in the current organisational structure, with Toby Harris remaining as president and CEO, working alongside the global senior leadership team within Clarion.
