New York, NY – After acquiring a 30% stake in CURVExpo in November 2008, EUROVET announced that it has acquired 100% of the trade shows held semi-annually in New York and Las Vegas.
Launched in Las Vegas in February 2007 by co-founders Jean-Luc and Laurence Teinturier, CURVExpo serves retailers in the fashion and intimate apparel, men’s underwear and swimwear industries. According the company, CURVExpo has grown more than 20% annually to four events in just five years.
EUROVET produces 16 textile and fashion-related fairs worldwide, including seven dedicated to the lingerie and swimwear industry. The company owns the Salon International de la Lingerie and Mode City, which take place in January and July in Paris. In addition, the company produces a number of trade shows in Asia.
Jean-Luc and Laurence Teinturier will continue to manage CURVExpo as co-presidents. They will be joined by a vice president appointed by EUROVET to further implement synergies between the new North American division and the global exhibition company.
