Joe Manby reports record first quarter

Event services supplier Joe Manby has reported a record first quarter with a 12 per cent rise in business for the first three months of 2013.

The Harrogate-based company supplies design service, shell scheme and bespoke stand construction, electrical installation and graphic services to shows throughout the UK.

Director Andrew Manby credits the company’s ongoing success with new business wins including nine shows for Centaur Exhibitions, part of Centaur Media PLC, annual conference and exhibitions for the Royal College of Nursing for the next three years and securing an all service package for the newly launched Manchester Pet Show.

“We have secured more work by offering clients a fully-integrated range of event services. Equally important though, is the on-going support of existing clients such as the Harrogate Bridal Show, which is also key to growth,” he says. “We have continued to expand our range of services by enhancing our graphics package and our recently launched Floorplan Live event management system allows event organisers to efficiently manage their own floorplan layouts online.

“Our continued success, despite ever increasing pressure on all our time, reflects the fact that people still want to meet and share ideas and see first-hand new products and services, as well as enjoy the shared experience of being at a show. We are delighted to continue to build on our long term relationships as well as manage the event services for a new range of shows around the UK.”
