EN publisher Mash Media has announced a new strategic partnership with Mayfield Merger Strategies, an advisory firm specialising in mergers and acquisitions for exhibitions and events.
The move comes as both businesses aim to support and grow the UK’s independent organiser market, with Mash having supported Mayfield’s recent seminar providing practical advice to organisers looking to sell their businesses.
Additionally, in 2018, Mash Media launched the EN Indy Awards to enable independent organisers to compete against their peers to achieve recognition for their events in an industry often dominated by large global organisations.
Steve Monnington, co-owner of Mayfield Merger Strategies (pictured right), commented: “Mayfield has been representing the interests of independent organisers in the sale process for over 20 years and we’ve recently strengthened our commitment to these entrepreneurs through our M&A seminars and most recently the launch of the Event Growth Academy. We are delighted to partner with Mash Media to celebrate the independent organisers’ success through the Indy Awards.”
EN editor Nicola Macdonald added: “We’re delighted to announce Mayfield Merger Strategies as a strategic partner for the EN Indy Awards. Awards are a fantastic means for businesses and teams to have their excellence recognised and to stand out from the crowd in the busy exhibitions market.”
“Trade show organisers have always been an entrepreneurial bunch and nowhere is that clearer than in our thriving independent organiser sector.”
