Greenfield, Massachusetts and Portland, Maine (Sept. 16, 2002) — Diversified Business Communications (DBC) and the Organic Trade Association (OTA) today announced a new partnership in producing the All Things Organic™ Conference and Trade Show.
OTA founded the All Things Organic™ Conference and Trade Show in 2001 in response to the demand for a dedicated event serving the North American organic industry. The trade show features over 24,000 net square feet of exhibition space showcasing a wide variety of organic products, including ingredient companies, food and textile manufacturers, and service companies, and is visited by over 1,500 professionals each year. DBC, an exhibition organizer with over 30 years of trade exhibition experience, will work closely with OTA to maximize the show’s growth in the flourishing organic market.
"All Things Organic™ is positioned for significant growth. This new partnership with a company the caliber of DBC will help us expand this event to a new level," said Katherine DiMatteo, OTA’s executive director.
"We are excited about this partnership with OTA," said David Lowell, acting president of DBC. "We have a great respect for the accomplishments of this association and feel that by combining our experience in both the exhibition and food industry with a nationally renowned organization, we will assure a strong future for this show."
All Things Organic™ complements DBC’s recent expansion into the natural and organic products industry. Earlier this year, DBC acquired UK-based Full Moon Communications, producers of the United Kingdom’s leading trade shows and trade magazine serving the natural and organic products industry. In addition, DBC’s Australia division recently announced the launch of Natural Products Australia, a show that will be co-located with Fine Food Australia in September 2003.
The 2003 All Things Organic™ will be held May 14 – 18, 2003, at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.
Diversified Business Communications provides information and market access through trade exhibitions, magazine publishing, and online resources on five continents. In addition to serving the natural products/organics market, DBC produces over fifteen food exhibitions organized throughout the US, Europe, Australia and Asia. In addition, DBC serves a number of other industries including the commercial marine, electronics, investment and medical markets.
