World Trade Group (WTG Events) was formed in 1997 by Victor Lewis and Andrew Brown.
In 2002 they acquired the assets of Access Events (AEI), a traditional conference company. Looking to expand their global footprint, they opened in Toronto, Canada in 2003.
After four years of independent growth AEI was integrated into WTG's core business to create a single market-leading events company operating successfully across a number of key product areas; business performance, pharmaceuticals, energy, manufacturing and supply chain.
WTG Events set out to create a distinction between standard conferences and business summits. The 'business summit' model which it went on to pioneer, combines a high quality conference which decision makers pay to attend with a series of pre-arranged one-to-one business meetings and organised networking opportunities between delegates and sponsoring companies.
The company also built a fast-growing portfolio of online products.
In 2012 Victor Lewis retired and GCP Capital Partners LLP (now Kester Capital) acquired a majority stake in the company.
In summer 2014, WTG Events created a new global structure, with industry focused sector teams. The initiative was designed to support the creation of larger commercial events with deeper specialist content, more digital content including a full annual calendar of webinars, and a wider international footprint.
The sector teams: Business Performance; Pharmaceuticals; Energy; Manufacturing and Supply Chain are based in WTG Event's Global Hub in London. Each will develop international and regionally focused summits in Europe, USA, Latin America and Asia, plus webinars and other digital content.
