The IWSC Group is continuing its expansion in the food and beverage industry with the acquisition of the New York Craft Beer Festival.

The UK events company, organiser of the International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC), has fully acquired the festival from Mad Dog Events.

The acquisition comes as part of the group's concerted move into the beer industry, and follows the company's establishment of the Beer Awards in the UK.

Group CEO Allen Gibbons said: "Acquiring the festival from established event planners like Mad Dog Events means we are attaining a mature brand that already knows where it stands in the market place."
