Clarion Events Ltd has signed a multi-year deal through the end of 2019 with Agility, a global logistics provider. The contract builds on a longstanding relationship with the event organiser.
David Richards, regional director for Agility Fairs & Events Europe, explained: “Our long partnership has given Agility in-depth knowledge of Clarion’s needs and requirements. This new contract demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing high levels of service across Clarion’s diverse event portfolios, and we look forward to another three years.”
Under the agreement, Agility Fairs & Events UK will continue to provide official full exhibition freight and on-site services at more than 30 shows across Clarion’s event sectors, including retail and home, gaming, supply chain, and defence and security.
Among other industry-leading events, Clarion is the organiser for DSEI, one of the world’s largest defence and security events.
Tim Porter, MD of Clarion Defence and Security, commented: “Agility has become an indispensable part of our team, helping deliver what is undoubtedly one of the UK’s most complex shows in terms of freight and lifting. It’s great to know that Agility’s expertise and network are now being leveraged to support other parts of Clarion’s UK portfolio.”
