Telegraph Events has sold the London Bike and Triathlon Show to Frazer Clifford’s Newtimber Media. No terms were revealed. Clifford will be a familiar face to many visitors to the exhibition having worked as the sales director on the event for the past nine years. He told CI.N that long-term colleague Matt Letch will also join Newtimber Media in an enhanced business development role.
Telegraph Events has been moving away from B2C exhibitions in recent times, having also handed over the Rouleur Classic to Gruppo Media, the publisher of the road cycling journal, which takes sole control from 2018. The 2018 Rouleur Classic will run from Thursday November 1 to Saturday November 3 2018 at Victoria House, London. There are further ambitions to take the Classic overseas, starting in Australia.
Ruth Carter, Managing Director of Telegraph Events, said: “I’m delighted that Frazer will be leading the future development of the show. Small businesses are hugely important to The Telegraph and the community it serves, and being able to support Frazer on this journey is a really proud moment for us. He and the team have worked tirelessly to create these highly successful, award winning events and we wish him every success. Telegraph Events will continue its focus on growth and expansion across its vast portfolio of events.”
