Ocean Media Group, a provider of exhibitions, events, awards and specialist publications, has acquired The London Stationery Show, a trade exhibition for the paper and writing products industry; the consumer awareness campaign National Stationery Week; and Stationery Magazine.
Since the event was founded in 2011 by Chris Leonard-Morgan, the London Stationery Show has trebled in size, attracting a growing number of suppliers every year. The 2017 show is on course to continue this upward trajectory, with record re-bookings following this year’s event and over 85% of the 2016 stand space already booked.
Chris Leonard-Morgan, who will remain in place as an advisor alongside the existing team, said: “The London Stationery Show has much to gain from the Ocean Media Group, who have a wealth of experience working with and attracting large B2B and B2C audiences to their exhibitions, events and publications. We are looking forward to making the most of the support, experience and investment that they can offer.” The 2017 London Stationery Show is taking place at the Business Design Centre on 25-26 April, during National Stationery Week (April 24-30).
