The venue find, accommodation and event management agency has doubled its portfolio of shows in the last 12 months, appointed as the accredited accommodation provider for a wide range of events including The International Farnborough Airshow.

As part of a two-year contract, Zibrant will provide a bespoke solution for global events company Fresh Montgomery, which will include a booking system, personalised marketing and communications and a dedicated team of sector experts.

The increase in accommodation services follows heavy investment from Zibrant. By integrating allocation booking and live availability rates, the agency now offers a booking service designed to suit the changing needs and requirements of organisers, exhibitors and visitors.

Hannah Wilkinson, Zibrant's director of sales, said the Fresh Montgomery contract was an exciting new development. "It’s great to be working with such a prestigious company, especially as the Montgomery company celebrates their 120th Anniversary this year. Our ongoing investment in technology essentially underpins the service, making it possible to deliver efficient systems which can be adapted to meet specific requirements."

Janice Edmunds, operations director at Montgomery, added: "We look forward to working with them on establishing a fully integrated system, which will complement our business strategy and help us maintain and improve the high level of customer service we expect for our clients."
