The eighth annual Sunday Times International Track 200 ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies in order of fastest growing international sales. The sales growth was measured by the companies’ latest two years of accounts.

It comes a few weeks after the Financial Times FT1000 Index named CloserStill the fastest growing exhibition organiser in Europe, according to the FT1000 index report with revenue growth of 184% over the three years and a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 41.6%.
Since its foundation in 2008, multi award-winning CloserStill now has more than 30 events across the technology, healthcare and education sectors in UK and international markets including the United States, Germany, France, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Since its backing from private equity investor Inflexion’s Partnership Capital in early 2015, CloserStill’s young and vibrant event portfolio has been focussed on the expansion of its event brands in key global markets.
CloserStill this month staged its cluster of technology shows in Hong Kong which saw its revenues double and delivered an audience increase of more than 60% in its second year to more than 9,000 delegates.
In Paris this month the 5th edition of France Vet was the biggest event yet for the French veterinary market and saw an 18% increase in delegates.
