Inflexion agrees Partnership Capital investment into Easyfairs

Inflexion, a leading European mid-market private equity firm, is pleased to announce it has agreed a minority Partnership Capital investment into Easyfairs, an international events company, together with Cobepa, a Brussels-based privately held investment firm, and Eric Everard, Founder. All three parties will be equally represented in the partnership.

Easyfairs organises 110 exhibitions in 12 countries in 12 industry verticals including packaging & logistics, manufacturing, industrial processing, hospitality and construction.  It also manages eight event venues in Belgium, the Netherlands and Sweden.

The investment will enable Easyfairs to drive faster organic growth through new event launches and geo-cloning of existing events, extend its geographic and sector footprint, enhance its position as a sector frontrunner in big data and artificial intelligence technologies, and unlock further strategic M&A opportunities. Inflexion brings strong industry experience through its previous successful investment in CloserStill Media which successfully completed eight acquisitions and increased international revenues 6x during Inflexion’s stewardship.
