Elsevier to quit hosting arms fairs

Reed Elsevier, a major scientific, medical and education publisher, announced Friday that it is exiting the defence exhibitions sector.

Sir Crispin Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Reed Elsevier, said :

Our defence shows are quality businesses which have performed well in recent years. Nonetheless, it has become increasingly clear that growing numbers of important customers and authors have very real concerns about our involvement in the defence exhibitions business.

We have listened closely to these concerns and this has led us to conclude that the defence shows are no longer compatible with Reed Elsevier's position as a leading publisher of scientific, medical, legal and business content.
