Event specialist marks 39 years’ service to the flooring industry

Event services specialist Joe Manby Limited is celebrating 39 years of working with the flooring industry this year.

Originally appointed to provide event services to the show’s forerunner, the Northern Floorcovering Show in 1975, Joe Manby Limited has continued to provide a comprehensive range of integrated event services to the show in its various guises at the Harrogate Convention Centre. 

The Flooring Show, the UK’s flagship flooring event, is once again being held at the Harrogate Convention Centre and will take place from 17-19 September.

Since the Flooring Show’s relaunch in 2012 by Wendy Adams Associates, it has experienced year on year growth with both visitor and exhibitor numbers increasing significantly. The event brings together all areas of the industry, including the retail and contract sectors, and provides business and networking opportunities for both exhibitors and visitors.

To accommodate the significant increase in growth new features including a seminar theatre, trends hub and demonstration zones have been developed.

Wendy Adams of Wendy Adams Associates, commented: “The show continues to enjoy year on year growth and this is due in no small part to its location in Harrogate at the Harrogate Convention Centre which is much loved by the sociable carpet industry, but also very conducive to business. The continuity of services provided by Joe Manby Limited remain fundamental in ensuring the success of the event each year and we’re delighted to be working with the company again.”

Richard Manby, director at Joe Manby Limited, said: “We’re thrilled to be marking 39 years of working with the flooring industry this year.  The Flooring Show is one of the industry’s best-loved and most prestigious events.  It is always a pleasure working on a show that continues to grow in success and it’s great that it continues to be hosted in our home town.”
