Joe Manby Celebrates Record First Quarter

Owner managed event service specialist Joe Manby Limited is celebrating a record first quarter defying the tough economic climate by consolidating existing business and expanding into new shows.

The first three months of 2013 have seen a 12 per cent rise in business for the Harrogate based company which supplies design services, 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 (RCN) for the next three years and securing an “all service package” for the newly launched Manchester Pet Show.

He said:

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 (pictured), which is also key to growth.

Mr Manby added:

We have continued to expand our range of services by enhancing our graphics package and our recently launched Floorplan Live event management system, which allows event organisers to efficiently manage their own floorplan layouts online.  It also helps that we continue to focus on providing real value for money and genuine high standards of customer service.

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.
