New shows on their way to Telford

20th October 2009

Bosses at The International Centre,

Telford, have confirmed their business is continuing to grow, despite the tough

economic climate.

 The venue,

which is part of the Southwater Event Group, has announced three new shows will

be held there in 2010.

 In January,

Tattoo Freeze will take place, which is a new tattoo convention showcasing some

of the world’s best tattoo artists. Later that month, another new show, Farm

& More will take over the centre’s exhibition halls.

 And in

February, Movers & Storers – the only national exhibition for the removals,

storage and self-storage industries in the UK – will relocate to Telford from

the NEC.


Event Group Chief Executive Tom Gray said: “We’re absolutely delighted that

these three shows have confirmed they’ll be coming to Telford next year,

especially given the difficult financial climate at the moment.

 “It’s great

news to see event organisers showing their faith in our venue and our

facilities, and we’re particularly pleased to be hosting two of the shows for

their inaugural events.”

 As well as The

International Centre, the Southwater Event Group is made up of The Holiday Inn,

The International Hotel, and Grays Hotel.

 It offers 47 meeting rooms, and 341

bedrooms and its reputation as a venue that delivers high quality service at

competitive rates is spreading.

 “We have an excellent reputation for

hosting large-scale conferences and exhibitions for hundreds of delegates, but

we can also accommodate business meetings and events on a much smaller scale,”

said Tom.


flexibility of the space we have available and the close proximity of our

hotels to the exhibition halls is proving to be a real winning formula with

event organisers.

 “They know that the levels of customer

standards set at the International Centre are exactly the same as at our three
