The new event to launch in autumn 2014 will build on the success of SAMPE and ACMA 's annual events in the US.

“SAMPE and ACMA are recognised as the leaders of the industry, serving the industry and helping it grow," says Kate Thorpe, SAMPE president. "Bringing our two strong shows together will provide even greater value for our members and the industry.”

“We are thrilled to be working with SAMPE on such an important project," adds Lori Luchak, president of ACMA. "The mission of our organisations is to serve the industry. This show will certainly fulfill that mission and enable us to expand the rest of our programs to give the industry the tools it needs to continue to innovate and move forward.”

Additional information about the new show will be released in the coming months.

  • This announcement comes as the JEC Group launches its first exhibition in the USA. JEC Americas 2012 takes place on 7-9 November in Boston.
