Andrew Manby said: “We are delighted to be renewing our partnership with both of these show organisers.
“Our experience with the Christmas and Gift Fair predates the formation of our company, while our contract with Centaur Live recognises the real depth and breadth of our reputation and capabilities nationally. Both contracts set an excellent tone for the rest of 2015.”
