AIIM Europe today announced a partnership with Reed Exhibitions to jointly stage an annual event for the UK Information Management market. This strategic alliance brings together the two leading autumn events in the market – AIIM ´s Conference & Expo in Europe and Reed´s Documation UK, and is expected to fuel the further growth of the Information Management industry in the coming years.
Commenting on this coalition, Atle Skjekkeland Managing Director of AIIM Europe said, “The UK industry has been asking us for a major national show in London, and this alliance not only combines the strengths of both of our events, but also of both of our organisations. I am sure this will greatly enhance the industry´s visibility, and will benefit both vendor and end user members of AIIM.”
Claire Sellick, Event Director for Reed Exhibitions said “Documation is already a well known and respected brand across Europe, and this alliance with AIIM is another positive step for us in growing that reputation here in the UK. We are delighted to have the support of AIIM, and to be able to work with them to provide some much needed clarity and leadership in this market”
The new event will be managed by Reed, and will carry the internationally recognized “Documation” brand. AIIM ´s existing autumn event, AIIM Europe Conference & Expo, will be merged into Documation UK, with AIIM continuing to be closely involved in all aspects of the combined show, especially in bringing their industry knowledge to enhance the conference and educational programme, and in communicating the event to their membership.
´Documation UK, in partnership with AIIM Europe´ will run at Olympia from 18th to 19th October, concurrently with Reed´s existing Storage Expo event.
