Accelerated expansion in the event communications segment

GL events signed a memorandum of understanding to acquire "Alice événements", a leader in the French market in its sector.

Founded in 1979 by Pierre Lusinchi, with offices in Paris and Marseille and a permanent staff of 38, Alice événements is a specialised provider for major accounts of event organisation services for companies and the general public and business tourism events.

Its business is sustained in large part by a solid reputation of professionalism and a successful track record meeting the needs of a portfolio of customers that include IBM, Total, McDonalds, La Poste, SNCF, Bayer CropScience, Séphora and SFR.

The agency also organises trade fairs devoted to real estate and two-wheeled vehicles as well as automobile rally-raids in Tunisia and Morocco.

To pursue its development, Alice événements' management, headed by Pierre Lusinchi and Stéphane Clair, have chosen to join the GL events Group with which they have closely worked and have developed a relationship of confidence over several years.

This acquisition will provide GL events an opportunity to further reinforce its position in France in the event organisation segment where it already is present through Market Place and Package Organisation. These companies offer an exceptional complimentary mix in terms of know-how, geographical networks and commercial coverage.

The Group will in this way pursue its own expansion by focusing on event companies with strong competitive positions in their respective markets, offering high added value in addition to significant recurrent business and margins.
