AQUISITION PROSPECTUS PRE-QUALIFICATION SURVEY
eChemExpo was created in year 2000 and has evolved through a series of eleven gatherings mostly every other year. By many, eChemExpo is now regarded as the #1 multidisciplinary applied innovation event for the process industry.
Beginning April 15, 2021, eChemExpo founder, Peter Knox, in cooperation with selected Leadership Team Stakeholders are starting a search for entities interested in acquiring eChemExpo. In addition to a financial investment, major consideration will be given to the Acquirers envisioned approach to further develop eChemExpo in a way that will benefit long time participants and add value to the community of multidisciplinary stakeholders. This acquisition also includes the eChemExpo digital magazine, Applied Innovation … Powered by eChemExpo which was launched in 2016.
The purpose of this Survey is to help potential Acquirers best develop a Value Proposition for their organization. This will likely be an interactive process so feel free to schedule multiple calls to clarify any questions.
Current management plans to execute the upcoming October 19-20 eChemExpo event, which will be the 11th gathering since year 2000. Ideally, the new Aquirer can be at that event, announced during the Keynote address, and the transition process can be well underway beforehand.
Note: Depending on the acceptability of proposals, eChemExpo management and the Leadership Review Team may or may not make a selection at this time.
By way of background, the previous April 2018 gathering attracted some 200 exhibiting firms, a community of over 1340 registrants, 60 PDH accredited seminars and four highly relevant panel discussions.
Unique in its development cycle, each time, is an intensive stakeholder interview process to define real purchasing needs for participating user companies prior to each gathering. It starts with Executive Management and then progressed throughout the organization(s). For 2018 and again for 2021, over 100 stakeholders were interviewed each time. As such, the event reinvents itself for each event; this approach creates a flow of newly identified companies based on emerging real capital purchasing needs.
