Exhibitions & Trade Fairs (ETF) today announced the sale of the ENTECH trade show to the CX Network, headed by ENTECH founder Julius Grafton.

Having acquired ENTECH in 2004, ETF successfully operated the event for some time. ETF launched a satellite event, ENTECH-CONNECT which has run successfully in Melbourne on off-years to the main ENTECH trade show in Sydney.

ETF have advised that the forthcoming Sydney ENTECH, scheduled for July will now not proceed.

CX Network operates the CX Summer Roadshow, a touring 'pop-up' trade show. They plan to re-name the Roadshow as 'CX presents the ENTECH Roadshow' for 2016. CX Network head Julius Grafton confirmed today they have no intention of running a traditional trade show in any form.

ETF Managing Director, Gary Daly said,

“We are pleased that the CX Network will continue with ENTECH. They an integral part of the industry in Australia and have a detailed knowledge of the market.”

Mr Daly said that ETF’s priority now was to move forward with a focus on the existing portfolio of shows and the development of new events in emerging markets.
