Arc announces US move with Boston-based firm


Arc has announced its first move into the US with the takeover of an agribusiness media and events company.

HighQuest, based in Boston, hosts some of the world’s largest gatherings in the agriculture sector across the nation as well as the UK and Japan.

The acquisition sees Arc take on major events such as Global AgInvesting, Women in Agribusiness, Unconventional Ag and the Ag Club. Simon Foster, Arc Group CEO, said: “This is a great business, in a high-growth sector, that also happens to be a perfect fit for our network.

“These brands sit at the intersection of our established sector communities – finance, agriculture, food, and sustainability – and have a particularly strong fit with brands like Professional Pensions, Sustainable Investment and Bridge2Food.”
