Developed, maintained and enhanced over more than twenty years, no other company in the world has as much accumulated experience of agricultural show management systems.

Our People

ShowBiz support, training and advice is delivered by our Customer Services team led by Lucinda Sharp. Lu’s team has over 10 years’ agricultural show experience and is key to getting the most from ShowBiz. We are here to help 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday, and out-of-hours and weekends during your critical show period if required.

Business development is guided by Richard Parker who has been involved in the agricultural show industry for twenty years. He helped design ShowBiz1 way back in 1996 and now conducts research on successful introduction of agricultural show technology. Mark Butler leads the development team of Corey Gibbs, Andy Coombs and Peter Fray.

Our Company

ShowBiz Software has 25 years’ experience in helping agricultural shows improve the way they work though information technology.  We created the original ShowBiz way back in 1996 and, in close partnership with shows, have been refining it ever since. No other company in the world has as much accumulated experience of agricultural show management systems.

Our people are our biggest asset and ShowBiz Software has been recognised as an Investor in People four times over. We’re working towards the ISO 27001 quality standard to provide additional confidence in the way we manage critical customer data. We are committed to sustainable business and as a key member of the Suffolk Carbon Charter annually measure, reduce and offset our carbon emissions.  We take our wider corporate social responsibilities seriously and are an active partner in the Trading for Good initiative.
