We’re passionate about what we create here at Diversified UK, and it shows – our exciting, content-driven trade events and publications
are renowned for being industry leaders in their fields. Attention to detail, innovation and enthusiasm are at the heart of everything we do, which is what keeps our exhibitors, visitors, readers, sponsors, supporters, and followers coming back for more.
The industries we serve may be diverse but all our brands share a common goal. From the biggest international organisations through to the smallest regional start-ups – we help businesses connect and communicate with their customers.
As the UK division of Diversified Communications – an international event organiser and media group – we get to share our great ideas and brand innovations with colleagues in the US, Canada, Australia, Hong Kong and India. How’s that for global reach!
Diversified Communications UK is part of a rapidly growing, highly successful trade exhibition and media group, with its head office in the beautiful US city of Portland in Maine.
From just a couple of events and a magazine a few years ago, we now organise 13 highly successful trade shows, all of them leaders in their sectors, publish market leading trade magazines, do web stuff and, of course, social media to support the industries we work in. Nearly 80 highly motivated and talented individuals work here in our Brighton, Cotswolds, Peterborough and Leamington offices, all focused on creating the best possible exhibiting and visiting experiences for our customers. And we all have fun doing it! So, if you’re ever near one of our offices, come and say hello, we would love to see you.
We know that we are only ever as good as our last event, and we don’t take anything for granted.
We believe in attention to detail and like to control every last detail. For instance, we do all our design work ourselves because getting the message right and communicating it effectively, is essential to delivering successful shows. We do our own PR, because we think we know best. Our operations, marketing, sales – it’s all in house, done by people who understand the markets they serve, who know our customers and who can react quickly to feedback. We also like to think up new ideas and to work with people in new sectors to create tailor-made events that really work for them. So if you want to talk, give us a call.
Diversified Communications is a family owned company, with a growing global network of media events, and divisions in the USA, Australia, Canada, India, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore and the UK.
Our beginnings can be traced back to 1949 when Horace Hildreth Sr, the former governor of Maine, USA, launched the state’s first radio station and in 1953 launched WABI-TV. In 1970, the company appropriately ‘diversified’ and launched its first trade show, the beginning of another chapter, which eventually led to where we are today. Under the leadership of our CEO and President Ted Wirth, the company has seen rapid growth in recent years and is now recognised internationally as one of the most dynamic and successful companies in the sector. Annually, we now organise over 150 trade and consumer exhibitions and conferences around the world, some small and local and some very big, including international market leading events. In addition, we also have an important portfolio of publishing and eMedia products. To find out more, take a look at our international site at www.divcom.com.
We’re not going to bore you with how great we are on a daily basis... because that just wouldn’t be very much fun would it? So, how about we just stick to all the interesting stuff that we’re up to right now...
