PITTSBURGH, UNITED STATES and KUNGÄLV, SWEDEN, April 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NEP Group Inc. ('NEP') announced today via its subsidiary Mediatec Solutions the following: Åre has become an increasingly important place for corporate events. The region has invested a lot of resources in making the area more attractive each year. Mediatec has collaborated with Tomas Ling and Musikbygget already at many events and have now agreed to acquire the business. There are obvious synergies with the acquisition where we now will be a closer and local partner to the Swedish organization of the Alpine World Championships and Biathlon World Championships, which will be launched in Åre and Östersund in February and March 2019. In addition, it gives us an opportunity to work towards Trondheim and Östersund as markets and a clear local base in central Sweden. Musikbygget will be renamed to Mediatec Åre. 

"This is a great solution to get more resources for live events in our region," said Tomas Ling, Musikbygget's President. "Mediatec's large network will also provide the opportunity to work outside our usual region during" low-season" and provides a very interesting approach towards Northern Norway as a new potential region for business. NEP and Mediatec have a very good reputation and I am looking forward to working within Mediatec from now on," added Tomas. 

"The addition of Musikbygget is consistent with the broader strategy for NEP/Mediatec to continue expansion in new areas," said Kenneth Paterson, Mediatec's President. "The acquisition will be Mediatec's most northern office, specializing in Winter Events and hereby enabling us to offer live event capabilities with logistical advantages in a new and important area." 

This transaction was completed on April 3st 2018.
