Clarion Events has announced the acquisition of the PennWell Corporation, an acquisition that brings together two of the industry’s most well-respected names to create one of the largest events companies in the world and means that a number of the key Power & Energy events PennWell run will be integrated into Clarion Energy’s Power and Energy Series.
Clarion Energy has taken the decision to rebrand Electrify Europe to Power-GEN Europe, in line with its international counterparts. As well as this, Power-GEN Europe will be co-located alongside European Utility Week in 2019.
Clarion Energy Managing Director, Rick Wall, said “This is a very exciting proposition for Clarion Energy, our community and the industry as a whole. By co-locating Power-GEN and European Utility Week, we will be able to offer a truly end-to-end power event for the whole electricity value chain. The co-location will facilitate an unparalleled meeting place for the entire power & energy sector in Europe and one which will help to facilitate the acceleration of the clean energy transition”.
