Terrapinn acquires Science Media Partners

25/01/18

Terrapinn, the global events company, announced today that it has acquired Science Media Partners (SMP), an international events and publishing company based in the UK and focused on next-generation government, citizen and consumer-based identity solutions.

SMP’s portfolio of products includes the world-leading events – SDW 2018 and connect:ID – as well as the highly-respected news and information web portals – www.planetbiometrics.com and www.securitydocumentworld.com.

Terrapinn’s CEO, Greg Hitchen, said: “Science Media Partners fits really well with our enterprise technology portfolio and our style of event. There is also a strong cultural and entrepreneurial fit. And the events are world-class.”

Following the acquisition, Mark Lockie, Founder and Managing Director of SMP, will continue to lead SMP’s business operations.

He said: “The need to accurately ascertain and yet protect the identity of citizens and consumers has never been higher – and SMP’s products are recognised internationally as being catalysts to help push the identity sector forward, through networking, learning and business creation opportunities. This new and exciting partnership will enable SMP’s team to grow existing products even further, and expand its compelling identity-industry brands into international markets.”
