Informa has announced that it has acquired Merchandise Mart Properties Inc., Canada, a Canadian corporation and division of Merchandise Mart Properties Inc., owned by Vornado.
“Informa takes us to a new exciting level,” said Steven Levy, president of Informa Canada. “Over the next few years, plans are to expand our current business through organic growth, as well as by geo-cloning events from Informa’s repertoire.”
Attracted by MMPI Canada’s portfolio and their solid management experience, Informa Canada provides a very stable platform for Informa to introduce some of its international brands and products into the Canadian and U.S. markets.
