The company noted that November and December are significant trading months for the enlarged Informa Group, representing around 20% of annual revenue. November alone is expected to account for more than 350 million pounds.

Despite ongoing economic/geo-political uncertainty, forward pacing for the remainder of 2019 provides reassurance on Group revenue guidance of 3.5% for the year.
