The Autorité de la concurrence has examined the proposed acquisition of full control of the group Europa, which is active in the organisation of conferences and other events sector, by Comexposium.
At the end of its investigation, the Autorité concluded that the transaction does not affect competition in the conference organisation markets. Furthermore, it ruled out any risk of foreclosure between conference organisation and site management activities.
Finally, it ruled out any risk of harm to competition in relation to Europa Group’s publishing activities in the medical sector.
The Autorité therefore cleared the transaction without subjecting it to special conditions.
