With the agreed collaboration with Gruppo BolognaFiere Spa, important changes are taking place in the corporate structure of the publishing house and publisher Editrice Il Campo (publisher of Piscine Oggi) and, as a result, new horizons are opening up for the trade fair and congress events ForumPiscine, ForumClub and OUTEX.
Editrice Il Campo, with its publishing and events portfolio, has created a new corporate entity together with the BolognaFiere SpA group, one of the leading international exhibition organizers. BolognaFiere is a leading player in various business areas, with a strong presence in Europe, Asia and America, and is an international leader in the professional beauty care sector with the Cosmoprof brand.
Members of the group include public shareholders – such as the Region of Emilia Romagna, the Municipality of Bologna, the Metropolitan City of Bologna and the Bologna Chamber of Commerce – and a representation of private players, recently strengthened by the addition of Informa PLC: The British giant, world leader in the organization of B2B exhibition events and listed on the British Stock Exchange, gives BolognaFiere an even more international dimension and is in line with the ambitious goals of the Board of Directors set up last January.
The publishing house Editrice Il Campo, which recently celebrated its 50th anniversary, first with the publication of the trade magazines Piscine Oggi and Il Nuovo Club for the swimming pool, spa, fitness and wellness sectors and then with the development of the events ForumClub – International Congress & Expo for fitness, sports and wellness clubs and ForumPiscine – International Pool & Spa Expo and Congress, will be strengthened by the new corporate structure and will expand its development opportunities through the Gruppo BolognaFiere network.
Editrice Il Campo brings to the Group the publishing, exhibition and congress business, as well as the value it represents for professionals in the swimming pool, fitness, sports and outdoor design sectors. In this way, Editrice Il Campo will become part of an ecosystem in which new opportunities will arise in complementary market segments that will supplement the company’s core business and give new impetus to its publishing and exhibition activities. This partnership will also allow to further develop and expand the national and international reach of the ForumPiscine, ForumClube OUTEX – outdoor & leisure experience events.
