Telegraph Events has announced the sale of The London Bike Show (LBS) and Triathlon Show London to Newtimber Media, which is led by The Telegraph’s Frazer Clifford.
Having been part of the team that created the shows, Clifford will now go on to lead and develop both events under his own company. The change in ownership took effect on the 1 March 2018. The two shows took place on 23-25 February at London’s Excel Centre.
Clifford said: “I want to thank The Telegraph for helping steer a great show over the last four years. The LBS and Tri are now stand out shows in the Bike and Tri calendar. The growth through The Telegraph has been invaluable. It has been a great ride for me, one that started nine years ago, but as from today, my training wheels come off!”
Ruth Carter, managing director of Telegraph Events, said: “I’m delighted that Frazer will be leading the future development of the show. Small businesses are hugely important to The Telegraph and the community it serves, and being able to support Frazer on this journey is a really proud moment for us. He and the team have worked tirelessly to create these highly successful, award winning events and we wish him every success. Telegraph Events will continue its focus on growth and expansion across its vast portfolio of events
