Sussex-based Pegasus will manage all consumer media relations, drive the sales of tickets, ‘Pamper Packages’ and new ‘Taste Packages’, in add-ition to Vitality Workshops.

The agency will aim to strengthen the event’s reputation as the UK’s leading consumer show for women and position the event as ‘the ultimate girls’ day out’.

The brief begins immediately and runs to 1 April.

A number of Pegasus’ clients will be exhibiting at the show, including natural health and skincare products, Comvita and healthcare supplement specialist BioCare, with more set to confirm in the coming months.

The Vitality Show is set to expand its offering at next year’s event, with additional areas including a large
dance arena, Pom Wonderful kitchen and fashion arena.
