A KNUTSFORD marketing firm has won the contract to promote next year's Cheshire County Show.

Bella Design and Marketing, based at Booths Hall, was this week appointed as the show's public relations and marketing partner for next year's event taking place on June 21 and 22, 2016.

The win for the agency comes on the back of an already successful business partnership.

This year saw the launch of a new state of the art website for the event which was designed, built and promoted by Bella Design and Marketing.

“The awarding of this tender is testament to the success of the ongoing relationship with the team at Bella Design,” said Nigel Evans, executive director of the Cheshire Agricultural Society, the show’s governing body, based at Tabley Showground.

“Our previous experience working in partnership with Bella Design on the website project gives me great confidence in the team’s ability to deliver on what they promise. The tendering process was highly competitive.

“The Bella Design team was the stand out applicant on many fronts, particularly the company’s multifaceted approach to marketing and comprehensive range of services.”

Next year's show will feature promotional trade stands such as food halls and cheese marquee, general trade stands, motor trade stands, farmers market and the AgriCentre marquee.

“We look forward to bringing great enthusiasm to the Show plus our marketing and PR expertise to contribute to an incredible event for the Cheshire Agricultural Society, Cheshire community and beyond on June 21 and 22 next year,” said Bella Design’s managing director Paul Watson.

“The Cheshire County Show attracts in excess of 80,000 people across the two day event but of course, there is a lot of hard work done by Nigel and his team in the lead up.

“We admire their dedication and we are very much looking forward to being part of that build up, to being part of what makes the Cheshire County Show the must visit

event for so many thousands of people from all across the region, from the agricultural community and the public to trade stand holders, exhibitors and sponsors.”
