Exhibitions and Trade Fairs Pty Limited (ETF) and Exhibitions Pty Limited (EPL), a Sydney based exhibitions management company are pleased to announce that the Matex exhibition has been acquired by ETF.

The newly acquired exhibition is being held in April 2008 at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, Homebush.

We look forward to working with the current exhibitors and the industry to deliver a high quality event that exceeds the expectations of all the key stakeholders".

It will be business as usual for exhibitors, venues and key suppliers to MATEX under ETF ownership.  EPL’s Australian based team will be working with ETF in Sydney to manage these exhibitions and to ensure continuity and consistency of service delivery.

I look forward to assisting the ETF team with the smooth transition of this event for 2008".
