Quintessentially Business Events (QBE) was born in 2008 in Suffolk by the Edmundson’s who had been in the Events business for many years as exhibitors. QBE is a family run business with three members of our family, Guy, Paula and Annabel working for the Company full time and Sophie working part time. The Company started with a few small events, the Framlingham Country Show being one of them which is held at the private school, Framlingham College - now going into its 13th year. Since then, we have expanded and are lucky enough to organise some fabulous events at so many amazing venues such as the Framlingham College, Quex Country Park, Nonsuch Park and Mansion, The Penn Estate, Stow Cum Quy Estate, to name a few.
We are passionate about our Events and put our heart and souls into them which make them fun, exciting and different. As we were exhibitors before adventuring into event organising, we understand both the exhibiting and organising side of the business, so try our hardest to be fair to our exhibitors. We find that organising events is similar to a puzzle, there are many pieces to making an event a success and exhibitors are an important aspect, along with the attractions and visitors. We have the A team working with us in the office comprising of Kathy, Sonia and Hazel and our Show Team which is made up of another 25 dedicated individuals.
We have focused our Shows to have something for everybody. Whatever you want, our shows will have it. If you love Country Shows, Music Festivals, are a foodie and would like to watch some amazing cookery demonstrations, fancy some fabulous shopping, learn more about rural crafters and buy yourself some crafts, you can come along and see wonderful producers, loads for the little ones and your four legged family members, amazing main rings, gardening and there will be some very exciting and new zones added this year.
2023 is set to be a very exciting year for our shows.
