“2018 was a year of continued progress and growth for the Group, both organically and through eight strategic acquisitions across our three regional divisions. Each of these acquisitions contributes towards our ambition of becoming the leading, most respected, integrated event solutions business in the world.
We expect another year of growth in 2019 assisted by a full year’s contribution from our eight acquisitions. We will also continue to focus on completing the integration of the most recent acquisitions and supporting the new UK Management team with the implementation of identified operational improvements. Furthermore in 2020, the return of the US Open, coupled with the addition of a number of major events including the US Ryder Cup and the Tokyo Olympics, give us confidence that we will continue to see organic growth across the Group beyond 2019.” – Greg Lawless, Group CEO
