UBM business segments

UBM operates in three main business segments:


UBM is the world’s second largest ‘pure play’ event organiser. We organise tradeshows and other live ‘in person’ events which enable businesses to do business, transact, learn and network as part of a professional or commercial community. Revenues are generated by exhibitors purchasing space at our tradeshows, through event sponsorship and, at some of our events, through attendee entrance fees.

Other Marketing Services

We carry out campaigns on behalf of clients looking to enhance their branding, customer awareness, reach and engagement or to generate sales leads. We offer a range of high quality, sector specific digital and print products (such as community websites, digital directories and print publications). These enable our clients to reach their target audiences or enhance their professional knowledge and can improve both attendee and exhibitor experiences at all our events.

PR Newswire 

Our PR Newswire business provides communications products and services to professionals working in marketing, public relations, corporate communications or investor relations roles and is a leading distributor of premium releases in the US and Canadian markets. As well as distributing our clients’ messages and content, PR Newswire also helps identify target audiences across a range of digital and traditional media channels.
