Tarsus acquired F&E Aerospace in 2007 and with it The Dubai Airshow, the third largest aviation event in the world. It is the flagship event for Tarsus’ Dubai operation and a leading event in the region. Tarsus F&E also manages a market leading portfolio of events, including MEBAA Dubai, GESS Dubai and GPP.
MEBAA Morocco, a replication of MEBAA Dubai, is now staged in Marrakech and is the first event of its kind in the region.
Tarsus became active in the Turkish market in 2011 when it acquired Istanbul-based IFO. This was quickly followed with the acquisitions of CYF and Life Media in 2012, and SADA and the KOMATEK brand in 2014.
In Europe the group runs Labelexpo Europe biennially, and owns the successful Onrec magazine and its portfolio of events and conferences.
Since the sale of the Group’s French business in 2015, Tarsus has concentrated its European activities on one of its flagship events, Labelexpo Europe in Belgium, and the Onrec portfolio in the UK.
