AT A GLANCE: Last fall, Ashfield Meetings & Events launched Spark Thinking, a consultancy that works to enhance the effectiveness of live events and communications strategies. Another brand, Medex Media, which Ashfield’s parent company, UDG Healthcare PLC, acquired in March 2014, was brought under the Ashfield umbrella last fall but continues to operate out of the U.K. Medex Media focuses on creating exhibits and events in the healthcare sector. Ashfield’s U.S. footprint has expanded with new offices in San Bruno, Calif., alongside colleagues from affiliate company Ashfield Healthcare Communications. Ashfield Meetings & Events also has offices in Ivyland, Pa., and Indianapolis.
