Reed Exhibitions partners with K.Fairs

News this week: Reed Exhibitions has announced a new joint venture (JV) partnership agreement with Korean exhibition organiser, K.Fairs Ltd. Under the new agreement, the first event the two companies will jointly organise is a maritime event – Kormarine. Reed K.Fairs Ltd. will organise the next edition of Kormarine, which will take place in Busan’s BEXCO from 20th to 23rd October 2015.

Billed as Korea’s largest international maritime industry event, the 2013 edition of Kormarine attracted over 1,000 exhibiting companies and 40,000 visitors from over 70 countries. Kormarine was first launched in 1978 showcasing boats, ships ferries, and the latest in engine, deck and fishing equipment and technologies.

Paul Beh, Reed Exhibitions’ Asia Pacific president, commented, “Kormarine is the biggest maritime event in Reed’s portfolio, further strengthening our presence in Asia’s maritime industry, namely Asia Pacific Maritime in Singapore, Indonesia Maritime Expo (IME) in Indonesia, and Oceanology International China.” Mike Rusbridge, chairman and CEO of Reed Exhibitions, added, “Kormarine is Reed’s debut into the nation’s burgeoning maritime industry. Reed is optimistic we will rapidly expand our Korean presence even further in future.”
