Canon acquires three Canadian trade shows

Los Angeles—Canon Communications announced Monday that it has acquired the Plast-Ex and EXPOPLAST trade shows from the Canadian Plastics Industry Association. Separately, Canon also acquired PACKEX, a Canadian packaging trade show, from France’s COMEXPOSIUM group and the Packaging Association of Canada.

Canon said it will co-locate Plast-Ex and PACKEX in 2011.

“Canada is a natural extension of our events portfolio, which now includes 62 shows in eight countries in North America, Europe and Asia,” Canon CEO Charles McCurdy said in a statement.

Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.
