Reed Exhibitions have disposed of Vertical Flight Expo – previously called (and better know as) Helitech International.
The purchasers are Prysm Group, who have been organising B2B trade exhibitions for over twenty years, and are responsible for a portfolio of over 50 shows across the world. In 2019 alone the company opened new offices in the USA, Hong Kong, and Germany, as well as two more in the UK, as well as adding 10 more events to their global portfolio.
The event will be run jointly by two of Prysm’s most experienced MD’s, Christian Yandell and Nick Woore, both with experience of breathing new life into some of the UK’s biggest trade shows. Speaking with HeliHub.com, Yandell would not be drawn on future plans for the event at this early stage, but it appears likely that the event name will revert to Helitech and that locations other than its most recent home of Farnborough are under serious consideration.
