How it all started

Contract Exhibition Services started life in 2001 by Giles Smith operating as a self employed event driver and stand manager, In 1982, and at the age of 18 years old Giles started working in the events industry running event stands for his family business within the caravan industry, and soon after started a Promotional gift company that attended large championship dogs shows throughout the UK. After moving to Leadenham in Lincolnshire in 2001 Contract Exhibition Services was formed as a event and exhibition support service for companies attending events with exhibition trailers and marquees.

Having years of experience in trailer towing and expertise in logistical management, plus having a background in retail management, enabling him to run the stand and promote the brand on event days, was a different approach, but central to the business idea, and gave him the ability to offer to clients the benefit of a 
3 in 1 style support service.
