TMS helps showcase two counties at major exhibition

Wednesday 7th September 2016

TMS Media has been commissioned to design and build two exhibition stands showcasing Norfolk and Suffolk at a major exhibition for property professionals and international investors.

The matching stands will face one another across an aisle at the prestigious MIPIM UK exhibition and conference at Olympia in October, with teams from the two counties working together to attract developers, entrepreneurs and business owners to invest in the region.

Great Yarmouth-based TMS Media won the £50,000-plus contract in a competitive pitch organised by the partners - New Anglia LEP, Greater Norwich Growth Board, Norfolk County Council and Suffolk County Council – who have joined forces to promote the region as a place to invest.

Jimmy Hartwell, TMS Media’s exhibitions and events manager, said: “The stands share a contemporary design, with a unified look under the brand, The East. Our concepts, however, ensure that each stand reflects the distinct character and commercial advantages of the two counties.

“The brief to create two separate, facing stands linked by a common design was unusual, but our solution provides Suffolk and Norfolk with a strong presence at an event that attracts about 5,000 investors, agents and developers from around the UK and overseas.”

The contract comes just six weeks after TMS Media won a £60,000 competitive pitch to promote the £6million SCORE grant programme, designed to encourage innovations in offshore renewable energy.

“This has been a very encouraging quarter for TMS,” said managing director Steve Scott. “We have a whole series of exhibitions and events in the pipeline between now and the end of the year, plus 22 websites currently in development, a major database system for a ground-breaking community project and a record number of PR clients on our books.

“The integrated nature of our in-house services appeals to clients as it ensures consistent messages and branding across everything from design and digital to events and media.”
