Access TCA, an international, independent event marketing agency, has acquired majority stake in Nuvista Event Management, an I&D and audio-visual supplier in Dallas. Purchasing the firm greatly extends Access’ service offerings and advances its evolution into a fully integrated exhibit and event management company.
“This brings our long, successful relationship to a new level. Many of our clients have been working with Nuvista for years, and now, with this more formal relationship, Access becomes a cost-effective, single source for exhibitors, offering the advantages of a general contractor but with far more transparency and without the inherent conflicts of interest,” said Mike Yag, CEO and founder, Access.
Continuing to operate as an independent company, Nuvista will be under the direction of Founder, President and CEO, Amanda Helgemoe.
“For Nuvista’s direct clients, it’s business as usual, but we are now supported by expanded systems, training and staff. We’ll continue to focus on delivering reliable, high-touch service in every convention venue,” said Helgemoe.
The board of directors at Nuvista will include Helgemoe and Yag as well as Access executives Amy Sondrup, vice president; Linda Davis, vice president of finance; and Jon Ellms, vice president and principal.
“Both Access and Nuvista have long been vocal advocates for transparency and the reduction of non-performing costs. This new level of operational alignment will go a long way to continuing that mission on behalf of our clients,” Sondrup added.
Nuvista supports clients at over 1,000 events and tradeshows across the country each year with a team of more than 200.
Access has built memorable strategy-based solutions for leaders in the automotive, health care, technology and consumer goods industries for 28 years.
