Established event services provider Joe Manby Limited – which this year celebrates 40 years in business – has been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award.
The Harrogate-based family-owned firm has been announced as a finalist in the ‘Best Supplier to Organisers’ category of the Exhibition News Awards 2014.
Winners will be revealed at a glitzy ceremony scheduled at ExCel in London on Thursday 3 April.
Joe Manby Limited, located on Hookstone Park, was established by Joe Manby in 1974 to service the local events market.
Today sons Richard and Andrew run the business, which has a portfolio of 75 events nationwide, a worldwide customer base, and a full time staff of 34.
Richard, company director, said:
“We pride ourselves in delivering a professional, quality and personal service at all times and to all our clients.
“It is an approach that continues to win us long-standing loyalty among our customers – Harrogate Christmas & Gift Fair and the Harrogate Nursery Fair has been with us since 1974, while we’ve been supplying event services to the Conservative Party Conference since 1985.
“We are delighted to be a finalist in the ‘best supplier to organisers’ category.
“It reflects the dedication and hard work of the entire team, and it would be fantastic to win in our fortieth year.”
