After a successful launch last year, an experiential travel exhibition returning to Harrogate in October has appointed Joe Manby Limited to provide event services.

The Wildlife and Safari Travel Show is being staged at the Harrogate Convention Centre from 12-13 October. It will bring together wildlife watching, safari and conservation travel experiences to inspire visitors looking for their next unique travel experience.  

Along with an extensive programme of inspirational stories and debates from conservation experts and travel specialists, visitors can enjoy immersive travel experiences ranging from swimming with seals and a tropical rain forest to a South African safari, courtesy of a 360-degree virtual reality experience.  

A wildlife art exhibition created by artists and celebrities will also be unveiled and will go on to tour London and New York. The sketches will be auctioned at a later date, with the proceeds going to Sketch for Survival which raises awareness about species extinction while also raising funds to fight wildlife crime.

Joe Manby Limited will provide floorplan layouts, shell scheme, electrical services, graphics solutions, feature areas, theatres, floorcovering and furniture hire for the show.

Chris Erasmus, director of Converge Exhibitions said: “Our first show last year was enthusiastically received and it’s a pleasure to be returning to the lovely town of Harrogate. Thanks to programmes like Blue Planet and Dynasties we’re all very much more aware of the problems facing our planet. This is an opportunity to not only learn about some unique travel experiences to fire your imagination but to help us to travel more sustainably and pick up some insights from those in the know.”

Andrew Manby, director at Joe Manby Limited, said: “We were delighted to play a small part in the success of last year’s inaugural show. We are pleased to be reappointed to work with Converge Exhibitions again this year and to see the show bringing some exciting travel experiences to Harrogate’s Convention
