Los Angeles—B-to-b media company Canon Communications said Wednesday that it has acquired the Plastics USA show from the Society of the Plastics Industry. Canon plans to merge Plastics USA into its own PLASTEC trade show.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Under the terms of the agreement, SPI will support all of Canon’s PLASTEC shows and related events, while Canon will provide financial incentives to exhibiting SPI members.
Canon will partner with SPI in 2009 and 2012 for the “NPE Advisor,” an online newsletter delivered before and during the triennial NPE plastics expo. —Matthew Schwartz
