The terms of the acquisition are undisclosed, but Paran Johar, the founder of Mobile Motion, remains its CEO.

Comexposium’s acquisition of Mobile Motion will allow it to add 10 international events to its portfolio. The Mobile Media Summits it has acquired are thought-leadership forums for brand, agency and mobile leaders to discuss the newest mobile technology. The network is the largest mobile media and advertising conference series in North America and has been growing in Europe recently, with shows in Barcelona, London and Cannes. 

Renaud Hamaide, Comexposium’s managing director, said: "This rapidly growing industry is integral to the group’s international development strategy and represents a portfolio of leading events that will work in synergy with our existing ones."

Paran Johar, CEO and Founder of the Mobile Media Summit, said: "I am incredibly excited to expand our Mobile Media Summit conferences around the world. With mobile becoming the cornerstone of marketing, advertising, and technology, our events have become critical for brands, agencies and media companies that want to stay ahead of the curve in business."
