Reed Exhibitions acquires the leading commercial property trade show in Russia

27 Jan 2016

Reed Exhibitions, the world’s leading event organiser, expands in Russia.

Reed Exhibitions Russia today announces the acquisition of REX (Real Estate eXhibition) and its satellite Arenda (Commercial Leasing) trade shows.

Launched in 2004, REX is a professional trade show dedicated to retail property. As the leading and largest event in the commercial real estate sector in Russia, REX attracts over 5,000 visitors. The next edition of REX will be held in Expocentre in Moscow on 20-22 April 2016.

REX and Arenda will benefit significantly from Reed Exhibitions expertise in the sector, exceptional customer service, top quality conferences, global reach and a choice of marketing tools aiming to increase participants’ ROI.

Gregory Zaraisky, Managing Director, Reed Exhibitions Russia said: "REX is a high quality product already. We see our role in enriching REX by utilizing the capabilities and resources of Reed Exhibitions, and presenting the event to the world developer and investment communities. We plan to not only solidify REX’s leading position in Russia but also develop REX to the level of the internationally-renowned MIPIM and MAPIC, organised by our France-based sister company Reed MIDEM."

Oleg Voitsekhovsky, the founder of REX adds: "We have known Reed Exhibitions and its flagship events in real estate for many years and always held them as a role model to observe and learn. REX grew fast but I have no doubt, under Reed Exhibitions’ stewardship, the show will develop even faster and its participants will very soon feel greater effectiveness, efficiency and dynamics assisting them to grow within the potentially huge and attractive industry."

"Reed MIDEM is delighted to be associated with our sister company Reed Exhibitions Russia in the acquisition of REX, the international retail real estate exhibition in Moscow," notes Filippo Rean, Director of Reed MIDEM's Real Estate division. "We have been organizing the world's leading retail real estate event MAPIC since 1995, launched the concept in Shanghai last year and will open MAPIC Italy this May. Combining Reed MIDEM's international experience with the expertise of Reed Exhibitions Russia and the REX team, will help develop a platform for international retailers and investors to source opportunities and locations in the dynamic Russian retail real estate sector."
