NEP Group Inc. (‘NEP’)announced today via its subsidiary Mediatec Solutions the following:
Årehas become an increasingly important place for corporate events. The region hasinvested a lot of resources in making the area more attractive each year.Mediatec has collaborated with Tomas Ling and Musikbygget already at manyevents and have now agreed to acquire the business. There are obvious synergieswith the acquisition where we now will be a closer and local partner to theSwedish organization of the Alpine World Championships and Biathlon WorldChampionships, which will be launched in Åre and Östersund in February andMarch 2019. In addition, it gives us an opportunity to work towards Trondheimand Östersund as markets and a clear local base in central Sweden.
Musikbyggetwill be renamed to Mediatec Åre.
"This is a great solution toget more resources for live events in our region,”said Tomas Ling, Musikbygget´s President. “Mediatec´slarge network will also provide the opportunity to work outside our usualregion during” low-season” and provides a very interesting approach towardsNorthern Norway as a new potential region for business. NEP and Mediatec have a verygood reputation and I am looking forward to working within Mediatec from nowon,” added Tomas.
“The additionof Musikbygget is consistent with the broader strategy for NEP/Mediatec tocontinue expansion in new areas,” said Kenneth Paterson, Mediatec´s President. “Theacquisition will be Mediatec’s most northern office, specializing in WinterEvents and hereby enabling us to offer live event capabilities with logisticaladvantages in a new and important area.”
