Exhibitions. The UK-based Nineteen Group has acquired Western Business Exhibitions’ 10 events, including The Fire Safety Event, The Security Event, The Health & Safety Event, and seven trade publications. The deal coincides with investment from Phoenix private equity. Nineteen, whose founder is majority shareholder Peter Luckham-Jones, is thought to have revenue of £3-4m. Phoenix’s only previous foray into exhibitions is believed to be an early investment in CloserStill back in 2012.
