London — According to its latest half-year report, the British-based company Informa Plc enjoyed an overall revenue increase of 41.3 percent. That was thanks largely to the stellar performance of its global exhibitions business, whose solo revenues rose 37.4 percent. Informa’s academic publishing unit also contributed, though far less significantly, to the increase. 

“I’m happy to say that the Informa Exhibitions team delivered strong results in the first half of 2017,” said Charlie McCurdy, President & CEO of Informa’s Global Exhibitions Division. “Our business is weighted toward the earlier part of the year, with such major shows as World of Concrete, Natural Products Expo West, and TISE in the US; Middle East Electricity, Arab Health, and Medlab in Dubai; VitaFoods Europe; and China Beauty Expo. We also saw progress on numerous smaller events throughout the world.  We look forward to the continuing expanded support of our core vertical markets and regions, and the deployment of our Market Maker strategy.”
