RX Plants Stake Firmly in the Tech Sector With Acquisition of Corp Events

PUTEAUX, France and RICHMOND, U.K. — Today’s event acquisition by RX Global of Corp Events brings one of the leading data and AI events in France under its umbrella and follows several other moves in the company’s effort to grow its business in the tech sector.

Corp Events owns and operates Big Data & AI Paris and Big Data & AI Toronto, and is the organizer, on behalf of the EuropIA Institute and SEMEC, of the World AI Cannes Festival (WAICF).

The next edition of Big Data & AI Paris, which was launched in 2012, will take place September 25-26, 2023, and is expected to attract more than 200 brands and 15,000 data and AI professionals to the Palais des Congrès in Paris. Chief Data Officers from organizations including Sanofi, Auchan Retail and Google are on the speaker roster. New at the trade show this year, Quantum Business Europe! Oscillator will offer leaders of the French tech scene an opportunity to explore the synergies between AI, Big Data and quantum technologies. The show will also feature a virtual component.

Big Data & AI Toronto is scheduled to take place on October 18-19, 2023, and World Artificial Intelligence Cannes Festival, which was just launched last year, will be held from February 8-10, 2024.

This move, the latest for RX in a series of recent data event acquisitions and startups, is another sign of the company’s interest in growing its business in this sector.

“We are looking to continue to grow organically at RX but supplement that growth with selected acquisitions – we are looking to make the right acquisitions in the right market and growth area for us,” RX CEO Hugh Jones said. “The events sector is still highly fragmented so it’s important we are focused on making the right acquisitions, where they make sense, in the right places within the right sectors and at the right time. We aim to be the best in class in the sectors we showcase – ensuring our events are brilliant.”

“RX has always been a source of inspiration and professionalism for me,” Olivier Cadi, President of Corp Events, said. “I started my career there and acquired solid expertise. With the contribution of a group like RX, we can now develop our events further. I look forward to our teams sharing their know-how and commitment to evolve our brands and products.”
