NORWALK, Conn., July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Eagle Eye Expositions, LLC, announced that its Border Security Expo and US/Canada Border Conference has been acquired by Clarion Events US.
"Border Security Expo and the US/Canada Border Conference are a perfect 'hand in glove' fit for the Clarion portfolio," said Lee Arevian, the Managing Director of Clarion US. "We already know so many of the exhibitors and the communities they serve from our other events in related markets here in the US and around the world. We're excited to help them align with all the opportunities in this market."
"It has been an honor and a privilege serving the border security community and helping them advance their mission through these two events," said Paul Mackler, President & CEO, Eagle Eye Expositions. "I am proud of the contribution Eagle Eye Expositions has made to this critically important government community, and while I'll miss working with this talented team and in this marketplace, I'm looking forward to focusing on new challenges," said Mackler.
John Moriarty, Event Director for both events, will be joining Clarion. "The involvement of Clarion is great news for our customers and attendees. Given the border challenges throughout the world, the timing is right for a company with global reach to take over these leading industry trade shows and conferences, and Clarion Events with its global resources is the ideal organization going forward".
