National Wedding Show and the Wedding Fairs Join Forces

Ocean Media Group, organisers of The National Wedding Shows, have today announced their acquisition of Mercury Events Ltd, organisers of the Wedding Fairs and the Baby & Toddler Shows.

The acquisition brings together the two leading providers of consumer wedding shows operating in venues across the UK including the NEC, Olympia, Excel, Event City, Manchester Central and Metro Radio Arena Newcastle.

David Watt, CEO at Ocean Media commented: “This exciting acquisition significantly reinforces our position as the number one player in the wedding market. As well as adding strength and depth to our teams, this purchase creates an ideal platform to improve and grow our portfolio of consumer wedding shows.”

Matt Miller will join Ocean Media as Managing Director, taking responsibility for the new Consumer Division. Miller said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for us to combine the analysis, expertise and best practice which sits within both organisations to develop an extensive set of wedding and baby shows that offer superb value to all our exhibitors and to every visitor. We will be working very closely with our partners in both industries to grow the market to everyone’s benefit.”

Miller adds: “Our values and vision for how we operate are very much the same. We’re aiming to serve our industries with an emphasis on innovation, integrity, and with a single-minded philosophy to produce shows that add genuine value to their markets every time they run.”
