Joe Manby Limited achieves new contract

Joe Manby Limited, an event service company, has announced its new three-year contract with the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH), for its annual conference and exhibition.

The company, based in Harrogate, has also been appointed by event organisers Ocean Media, to provide a shell scheme and electrical services until 2022.

The CIH’s conference and exhibition takes place annually over three days in June, at the Manchester Central Convention Complex.

The event provides a platform for stakeholders, local authorities, housing associations, key partners, suppliers, government, house builds and developers to debate the challenges facing the housing sector.

It also welcomed more than 8,000 attendees and 500 speakers across 11 theatres.

Richard Manby, director at Joe Manby Limited, said: “As we celebrate our 45th anniversary in business this year, we are pleased to celebrate long-standing business relationships with the Chartered Institute of Housing.

“Our latest contract with the Institute runs until 2022 by which time we will have been the events services partner for 40 years. We are delighted to play our part in the event’s longevity. Our team prides itself on the quality of the services we provide, and this is a ringing endorsement of our abilities.”

Sarah Payling, strategic partnerships director at Ocean Media, said: “My time using Joe Manby Limited has been a mere nine years of the 40 but when I took on the role overseeing Ocean’s flagship event, Housing, I was assured they were the best.

“I can honestly say they have been a dream to work with from day one. Even when we halved the build days from four to two in year one at Manchester! Ocean has a clear motto, together we succeed’ and with the team at Joe Manby Limited we have a great partnership.”
