Our specialist portfolio currently serves four markets with 10 exhibitions per year. The department is unique in that it is purely made up of exhibitions, drawing on the proven expertise we have here at Ocean to create industry-leading events that add significant value to their markets each and every time they run.

The Flooring Show and The Stationery Show are recent acquisitions for Ocean. Both serve the UK’s independent retailers with design-led products that are best presented and sold face-to-face.

Venues + Events Live is Ocean’s most recent acquisition from SquareMeal. Now in its 14th year, and running annually in London, this is the UK's leading exhibition and networking show for event organisers, attracting over 6,000 visitors responsible for booking corporate events, parties, private dining or any kind of event. We’re also taking the show national launching Venues + Events Live Manchester in September 2019.
