Reed Exhibitions has decided to donate $1M over the next five years to selected not-for-profit partners around the world. The selected NGOs are the ones who are working to improve inclusivity and diversity in their local communities by supporting social change, fighting injustice and fostering development. According to an official statement, the Reed Exhibitions Charity 2020 fund of $200k has been officially allocated to charities in Brazil, South Africa, UK and the USA.
“We are keen to make a real impact in our communities and work with each of the organisations to help them to achieve their goals.”

Devon DeAngelo, Social Media Manager, Reed MIDEM (France), is coordinating the initiative on behalf of the Global Race Relations Committee (GRC). She said that the donation made to each charity will support Black and persons of colour in the communities in which RX is present globally. Each of the charities’ initiatives are directly related to the GRC’s objectives of People, Business and Community. And, Hugh Jones, Reed Exhibitions CEO, said that the charities they will support have been identified in order to create meaningful, enduring changes that align with Reed Exhibitions’ strategic priorities and values. Reed Exhibitions is a leading global events business with over 500 events in almost 30 countries across 43 industry sectors, attracting more than 7 million participants.
