QuintEvents, Industry Leading Global Sports and Hospitality Company, Acquires UK-based Grand Prix Events and Exclusive GP

LONDON, June 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- QuintEvents, a global, travel/event/experience provider, announced today the acquisition of Grand Prix Events, a UK-based specialist in Formula 1® related corporate hospitality, luxury travel and experiences. The transaction follows QuintEvents' 2018 acquisition of Exclusive GP, consolidating the international hospitality and travel business partnership that QuintEvents has with Formula 1®, the pre-eminent, worldwide motorsport racing series.

The move fortifies and expands QuintEvents' international businesses, including F1® Experiences, the Formula 1® official partnership which offers premium experience packages at races across the globe.  F1® Experiences is primary among QuintEvents' other official, international hospitality and travel programs across a wide range of sporting events including thoroughbred horse racing, golf, tennis, UFC and American football.

F1® Experiences operates under the auspices of the international division of QuintEvents, which is in the process of opening a permanent, London-based office to oversee the newly-acquired companies in pursuit of growth for the portfolio of event partnerships around the world.

"Having Grand Prix Events join our team will be a huge boost to our F1® Experiences business in both the UK and throughout Europe," said Keith Bruce, International President of QuintEvents.  "The Grand Prix Events team has a first-class reputation in the industry and has done a superb job growing their F1® related business. Grand Prix Events, coupled with Exclusive GP, will now give QuintEvents a much larger footprint to help us develop and service our clients who are looking for exceptional sporting events and related experiences."

"Discussions with QuintEvents have been extremely positive from the outset, demonstrating a shared vision and promising an exciting future for Grand Prix Events," said Daniel Bois, Director of Grand Prix Events. "Our customers and partners will benefit immensely from the opportunities that this deal creates. We are particularly happy to be joining QuintEvents, a fast-growing group with significant international reach across many sectors."
