Easyfairs Acquires CCR Expo

Easyfairs UK & Global, part of the Artexis Easyfairs group, has announced its acquisition of the Clinical Cosmetic & Reconstructive (CCR) Expo from Wimbledon-based Nineteen Events.

CCR Expo has grown exponentially since its launch in 2013, with over 5,000 practitioners and 200 suppliers attending, and support from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and the British Cosmetic Dermatology Group (BCDG).

“CCR Expo has very quickly become a vital industry gathering which expertly unites surgical and nonsurgical professionals. It’s a showcase for the latest innovations and techniques in medical aesthetics. I am looking forward to seeing its continuing development under the new ownership of Easyfairs, which has long demonstrated its commitment to running high quality niche events. This seems to me like an excellent fit for the show!” said Norman Waterhouse, FRCS, FRCS, chair of the show’s Medical Advisory Board.

Phil Bloxsome, event manager for CCR Expo, will be joining Easyfairs to continue to drive the show’s development. Verity Noon, head of marketing, Peter Jones, chief executive, and Nicola Greenaway, managing director, of Nineteen Events, will also remain involved, working with the Easyfairs team to help develop the show.
