Business fair organiser in survival fight

Business Intelligence (BI), organiser of the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Show, was on the verge of financial collapse and seeking a last-minute buyer as Event went to press.

Business Intelligence (BI), organiser of the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Show, was on the verge of financial collapse and seeking a last-minute buyer as Event went to press. The company was set up in 1988 by two business journalists Ian Meiklejohn and David Harvey to provide research and advice on business trends and issues. The fourth CRM Show took place from 15-16 May 2002 at Earls Court. BI reported a turnover of £6m in 2001. It made four senior appointments last September, bringing its staff total to about 50. Since then the company has made redundancies on two separate occasions and staff were told that they wouldn’t be paid after 31 May. Business Intelligence was unavailable for comment.
