RX buys World Hydrogen Summit organiser

Global exhibition organiser RX has acquired the organiser of three international events for the rapidly developing hydrogen economy. 

Sustainable Energy Conferences (SEC) organises the World Hydrogen Summit in Rotterdam, Hydrogen Americas in Washington DC, and Hydrogen Asia-Pacific in Brisbane, Australia. It also owns the Sustainable Energy Council brand. 

The SEC team of 21 permanent staff will join RX and continue to run their events as part of RX’s strategy to expand in the low-carbon sector. 

Tim Clark, SEC’s founder said: “The global Hydrogen market continues to grow and revolutionise the energy world. Joining RX will allow us to grow these events by leveraging its technology platforms, global network and operational expertise. I look forward to our teams sharing their know-how and commitment to evolve our brands and products.”

Hugh Jones, global CEO of RX said: “Hydrogen is expected to be a large, high-growth and international sector critical to the future of decarbonising energy, industrial processes and transportation. The SEC portfolio is highly regarded, and RX is well-placed to leverage its impact, with these events complementing and enhancing RX’s wider offering in the energy sector. I very much look forward to working with the team.”
