CloserStill Media To Acquire UKI Media & Events

LONDON — CloserStill Media acquired a majority stake in the Hydrogen Technology Expo and Carbon Capture Technology Expo events in the U.S. and Germany. The two co-located events are additions to the company’s new Future Transport and Infrastructure Group, which was established with its acquisition of UKI Media and Events.

Hydrogen Technology Expo and Carbon Capture Technology Expo are held annually in Houston, Texas, in June and Bremen, Germany in September. Trans-Global Events launched the show series in 2021 in Germany, and then expanded the trade show events to North America in 2022. 

“It is very exciting to be part of such a dynamic, growing organization,” Yancy Weinrich, President, North America, CloserStill Media, said. “CloserStill is committed to delivering the CloserStill ‘magic’ and excellence to their existing shows as well as the new acquisitions. To invest in this sector, which is developing solutions to improve our climate change, makes me very proud. Additionally, to add this to our newly formed group of Future Transport and Infrastructure will only help to broaden our impact and reach, and will create more opportunities for our customers and our people.”

Since the launch, the two trade shows have seen significant growth, with a 223% increase in exhibitor numbers in North America and a 178% increase in Europe for the 2023 shows. The growth is credited to industry increasingly focusing on and investing in decarbonization.

“We are proud to have created the largest and fastest growing events in the exciting hydrogen and carbon capture technology space,” Trans-Global Founder and CEO Mike Robinson said. “We are delighted about the opportunity this partnership brings to us. CloserStill understands our vision and supports our mission. We believe that CloserStill’s pedigree in growing technology-driven events around the world, their commercial expertise and thoughtful approach to building audiences combine perfectly to help us further accelerate growth of our hydrogen and carbon capture events.”

In its second year, the U.S. trade shows welcomed nearly 5,000 attendees and more than 300 exhibitors. The third edition of the European shows, to be held Sept. 27-28, 2023, is sold out and will feature more than 525 exhibitors and attract an expected 8,000 attendees. 

The North American show will take place June 26-27, 2024, in Houston at the NRG Center.
