Rapid News Communications Group announce the sale of MM Live cluster to Datateam Business Media Ltd

Tattenhall, Cheshire, UK, October 15th 2012: Rapid News Communications Group (RNCG), are delighted to confirm the sale of the MM Live cluster of events to Datateam Business Media Ltd. This cluster comprises MM Live, MEMS Live, and Nano Live all of which focus on small and ultra precision part technologies.


In September this year, Datateam co-located its Sensing Technology event with MM, MEMS and NANO Live at the NEC, a strategy that proved popular with visitors due to the significant overlap in technology usage. Both events saw a significant growth in visitor numbers, confirming that a close working relationship between these two events would be beneficial.


Rapid News first staged MM Live at the Ricoh Arena in 2008, running it alongside its popular additive manufacturing show, TCT Live before moving it to the NEC in 2011. During the past five years MM Live has broadened its coverage to include Nano and MEMS sectors, both exciting and emerging technologies that offer manufacturers in all sectors huge benefits in reducing component size and weight whilst maintaining, and often increasing, functionality.


RNCG Chief Executive Officer, Mark Blezard, said, “We are delighted to have signed the deal with Datateam. Their understanding of the market means the events will be in good hands. Our plans are to continue to co-locate our events with Datateam at the NEC again in 2013 so it will be business as usual for exhibitors and visitors. This deal has also helped us free up resources for our new event Mediplas, which focuses on the use of plastics in medical devices. The event’s debut was a phenomenal success and we are really excited about the show’s prospects for 2013.”


Managing Director of Datateam, Parvez Kayani, said, “The acquisition of the MM Live cluster of shows marks an important and exciting step in the growth and development of the events division of the Datateam business. It follows the extremely successful co-location of the events with our own sensors exhibition this year and will allow us to expand our rebranded Sensors & Instrumentation show in 2013. This will be run alongside MM Live, MEMS Live and Nano Live and I am very happy that we will be continuing our excellent working relationship with Rapid News by once again co-locating with their Mediplas and TCT Live shows making this one of the largest and important manufacturing focused events of the year."
