Adventure Travel Expo sale finalisedJune 25th, 2014 | | industry
After 8 fantastic years owning and running the Adventure Travel & Backpackers expo series, Andrew Paltridge has announced yesterday that the business has been sold to OFM Exhibitions Pty Ltd – a Sydney based, family owned business with vast experience in event management.
A message on the ‘Adventure Travel Expo’ facebook page said “It has been an amazing journey for me and my family over the last 8 years. Not only have I learnt so much about the running of a complex event and marketing business during exciting, changing times – but I have also made many lifelong friends as well.”
“I will continue working on the expo series in a consulting role up until the Sydney expo in November.”
Stephen Choularton and the team from OFM Exhibitions have some exciting plans to take the expo series to the next phase of its life and I look forward with anticipation to developments. OFM is Sydney’s largest operator of outdoor markets, this involves organizing some 700 event days a year. In addition they have promoted and organized many one off special events such as The Rising Tide Music Festival and the Double Bay Festival, an event that brings 70,000 people into Double Bay each year.
