Who we are

At Easyfairs, we show our communities a vision of their future.

We’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, so we can inspire industries, create connections and deliver outstanding event experiences.

Our mission

We serve communities, give them a vision of their future, foster connections and offer a life-changing experience.

“We are catalysts of change.”

The impact of face-to-face events goes well beyond the day itself. By bringing people together, sharing information, exchanging insights and spotlighting the newest innovations, we create a powerful ripple effect. One that drives positive change in businesses and industries.

Time travel through 25 years of history

Come on a journey through Easyfairs’ company history. We’ll begin with our founder’s European Student Fair and finish in the present day. Ready?








2015 – now






Eric Everard, Easyfairs’ founder, organises the first European Student Fair. He’s just 24 years old.

Artexis (the Art of Exhibitions) is founded – delivering Art Brussels and antiques shows.

Artexis expands through event organisation and venue management opportunities (Flanders Expo, Antwerp Expo, …) in Belgium.

Easyfairs is launched! Several offices open across Europe and dozens of new events are delivered.

The company expands into the Nordic region with the management of Malmömässan and Kistamässan venues.

Easyfairs develops cutting-edge digital products to enhance exhibitors’ participation, including BoosterPack, Online365 and EasyGo.

New platforms and tools are created to attract and manage talents. The Academy Online, the internal e-learning platform, is launched.

Easyfairs continues to grow organically and also through events acquisitions such as ADF PCD Paris, Packaging Première, Advanced Engineering, Metal Madrid, All About Automation, Coiltech, CCR or Aesthetics.

Evenementenhal becomes Easyfairs’ new acquisition, allowing expansion into The Netherlands (Gorinchem and Hardenberg).

Artexis and Easyfairs merge.

The Covid pandemic crisis takes its toll on Easyfairs and the entire events industry. But Easyfairs events show a spectacular rebound.

Easyfairs signs a pledge for Net Zero Carbon Events, with a commitment to achieve net zero by 2050 and halve greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The company calculates its first carbon emission footprint and develops a sustainability roadmap. 

Anne Lafère and Matt Benyon are appointed as Group CEOs while Eric Everard, Founder of Easyfairs, becomes Chairman.
