The acquisition includes the sale of Intelligent’s Offshore Survey and Ocean careers events and LIDAR International and LIDAR Europe, which will be transferred to Diversified’s offices in Portland, Maine. Intelligent Exhibitions’ Versha Carter will continue to work within the business from its Nailsworth office in Gloucestershire.

Diversified UK’s Carsten Holm commented: “We are delighted to be welcoming Intelligent Exhibitions and its fantastic team headed up by Versha to Diversified Business Communications. We have known Versha for many years, and feel that their personal approach and attention to detail is very similar to our own way of doing things.  With the same team in place and a shared vision but with the added resources of Diversified, I hope the industry will enjoy working with us as much as you have enjoyed working with Intelligent Exhibitions over the years.”

Added Versha Carter, managing director of Intelligent Exhibitions: “We are very proud of what we have achieved with Ocean Business and this is an exciting new chapter for our event.  Diversified Business Communications share our passion and enthusiasm for creating exceptional events, with a reputation for delivering a great visitor and exhibitor experience.  With the Intelligent Exhibitions team being transferred to Diversified and the show continuing to be organised from our offices in Nailsworth, it really is business as usual and great news for the show.”
