GES, a global full-service provider for live events, has been appointed official supplier for the Manchester and January Furniture Shows, effective from April 2017.
The shows are widely recognised as one of Europe’s premier furniture exhibitions, boasting major international brands and attracting more than 20,000 trade buyers from the worlds of retail, hospitality and interior design. The contract with GES begins with the Manchester Furniture Show, held at Manchester Central in July 2017 and runs through to the January Furniture Show, at the NEC in 2019. GES will provide general event services to the shows including electrics, furniture, stand fitting and graphics.
The award-winning GES Design and Build team has also been endorsed as the official partner across both events.
Laraine Janes, director at January Furniture Show, hailed the appointment, saying; “We are thrilled to have GES on board. The GES team have extensive knowledge of our venues, our customers and our operational style - we look forward to working with them and delivering a fantastic exhibition experience.”
Nick Marshall, executive chairman, GES EMEA, said; “These are both major exhibitions that have flourished under the control and direction of January Furniture Show Ltd. We have a long association with the owners. Our teams share the same values and a passion for high standards of delivery – we can’t wait to get started.”
