Emap buys beauty exhibition specialist

Emap's business-to-business arm, Emap Communications, has bought professional beauty events organiser Trades Exhibitions Limited in a £19m cash deal.

The company, previously run by private owners the Moloney family - no relation to Emap chief executive Tom Moloney - runs six beauty exhibitions, including the flagship Professional Beauty event.
It also publishes five trade publications for the professional health, beauty and spa market, including Professional Beauty and Professional Spa, which will sit alongside Emap's other retail and fashion publications such as Drapers and Retail Week.
Emap said the acquisition was part of its strategy of focusing resources on faster growth platforms, including B2B events.
