Inflexion supports US acquisition by CloserStill Media

Inflexion is delighted to announce that it has supported CloserStill Media’s acquisition of Learning 2018, one of the leading learning conferences in the US.

CloserStill was founded in 2008 and partnered with Inflexion in 2015. The business operates content-led exhibitions throughout the UK, Europe, the US and the Far East and has been ranked in The Sunday Times HSBC International FastTrack 200 for three years running.

The acquisition of Learning 2018 expands CloserStill’s presence in the US, following the successful launch of its New York Vet conference in 2017. Inflexion has previously supported CloserStill’s international expansion through its 2017 acquisition of iLearning Forum in France.

Simon Turner, Managing Partner, Inflexion, commented: “CloserStill Media continues to grow at pace and we are pleased to be able to support them with our expertise in acquisitions and international expansion. This latest acquisition builds its position in the sizeable US market and is a significant step forward for the company.”

Phil Soar, Executive Chairman, CloserStill Media commented: “Following the successful launch of our New York Vet Show last year, we are now delighted to be expanding further in the US with this acquisition in the learning technology space as we continue our strategy to clone our highly successful events in Europe into Asia and the US.”

Last month, Inflexion supported Reed & Mackay’s bolt-on acquisition of Hillgate Travel.
