About Us
GBH Exhibition Forwarding Limited was established in 1976 by Alan Goldsmith, Ron Blackmore and Alan Hunter. Incorporated in the Spring of 1976, the company provided specialist freight forwarding services to British companies participating at overseas trade shows.

The first exhibition that the company serviced was the BERGBAU Mining Machinery exhibition in Dusseldorf. Machinery shows were the key focus of attention in the first years with assistance provided to companies attending shows such as Salon de l'Emballage in Paris, Tokyopack in (you guessed it) Tokyo, ScanPlast in Gothenberg, IBA in Munich and Drupa, Interpack and Kunstoffe all of which take place in Dusseldorf.

It wasn't long before the company became involved in other industries such as food shows (ANUGA), Chemical engineering (ACHEMA) and outdoor activities (SPOGA & GAFA).

GBH quickly established itself within these and a number of industries with thanks to support from trade associations such as the British Food Export Council and the Institute of Packaging as well as agents located at major exhibition venues around the world. Many of the agents who cooperated in the early days of the company continue to provide valuable support and assistance.

In 1997, GBH was accepted as a member of the International Exhibition Logistics Associates. As time progressed, GBH provided a wider variety of services within the exhibition forwarding and logistics market, eventually including the provision of on-site logistics management services for events around Europe. Since 2005, GBH have been on-site agents for events in cities such as Lisbon, Monte Carlo, Cannes, Stockholm, Barcelona, London, Berlin and Paris. Plus many more.

GBH now prides itself on providing a quality service to companies from all around the world. From large PLCs to small 'Cottage industries', all receive the same high level of service. The confidence that these companies show in us now, is appreciated as much now, as those that trusted us with their shipments as a new company in 1976.
