PRESS RELEASE - Acquisition Opportunity!
Dear KNOWSHOW community,
We've got some major news to share with you all.
After more than 15 incredible years, the time has come for us to say goodbye to the beloved KNOWSHOW tradeshow. But don't worry, this isn't the end of the road for KNOWHOW – we're thrilled to announce an exciting opportunity for the right individual or organization to acquire the KNOWSHOW tradeshow and brand.
As one of the most popular and recognized buying tradeshows in Canada, KNOWSHOW has been the go-to destination for retailers, buyers, and industry professionals since its inception in 2006. Founded by Perry Pugh, Ben Couves, and Nick Brown, the event started as a niche action sports tradeshow and has grown to become a platform that covers all areas of lifestyle and fashion.
In 2016, KNOWSHOW was acquired by Cube Business Media, and with our years of event experience and operational expertise, we've been able to take the show to new heights. As Cube has grown as a company, the majority of our event portfolio now consists of events in the tech and M&A sectors, and it's time for us to focus on our core business exclusively and provide someone else with the opportunity to take the reins of this incredible event.
The community at the heart of the KNOWSHOW has always been the driving force behind its success, and that’s why we're letting you, as a valued member of our community, know about this opportunity to acquire the KNOWSHOW brand. With over 250 participating brands and an average of 3,000+ attendees each year, the KNOWSHOW is a profitable opportunity for an individual or company in the community to take it to the next level and continue to build on its success.
We've had a blast with KNOWSHOW over the years, but it's time for us to pass the torch and watch it grow and evolve in the hands of someone who shares our passion for this incredible event. If you're interested in learning more about this exciting opportunity, please get in touch with Michelle Wong (Vice President) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
