It’s that time of year again and the Diversified team have donned their Christmas jumpers once more! This year Diversified raised money for Lennox Children’s Hospice, a charity who aims to make a positive difference to the lives of children suffering from cancer or leukaemia.

It’s official – Casual Dining is one of the best trade shows in the UK!
Casual Dining was named ‘Best Tradeshow Exhibition under 2,000sq.m’ at the AEO’s glitzy annual Excellence Awards last week. Following in the footsteps of lunch!, which won the same award for two years running in 2010 and 2011, it took the top spot ahead of some serious competition (including our own office*, Natural Products Scandinavia & Nordic Organic Food Fair).
Pharrell Williams’ original video for ‘Happy’ has already clocked over 276 million views on YouTube, and inspired some impressive tributes. Our marketing director Sam Sloan is a big fan of the tune, so when it came to making a video for Diversified Communications’ annual marketing summit, held in the USA last month, you can probably guess what happened next.
If you’re familiar with our work, we’re hoping this video will make you smile (chances are, you’re even humming the tune already). You’ll get to find out a little bit more about Diversified UK (and some of our wonderful exhibitors) and see exclusive behind-the-scenes footage from our recent shows.
From the successful launch of Casual Dining to the 20th anniversary of SITS – The Service Desk & IT Support Show, there has been much to celebrate over the past few months. Natural & Organic Products Europe bid Olympia London adieu with its most successful edition to date and Geo Business – the new launch from our Cotswold office – is in the final stages of preparations before its launch tomorrow at the Business Design Centre in London.
Last week saw the announcement of the finalists for the AEO Excellence Awards 2014 – and we’re delighted to say that Diversified UK has been shortlisted in a record five award categories!
lunch! added another industry title to its mantle after winning Best Trade Show at the annual Exhibition News Awards ceremony last month.
Yes, that’s right – it’s Christmas jumper time again! And the staff here in Brighton didn’t need much persuading to don their favourite festive knitwear to help raise over £100 to buy toys for several local children’s charities. Well done team!
Five successful shows, 930 exhibiting companies, and 18,000+ attendees later – the Diversified UK team have certainly been busy over the last few months!
It’s been a busy year so far here at Diversified UK and we’re delighted to welcome four talented new team members to our Brighton HQ!
