DMOS People announced as new showground sponsor
23 Aug 2023

The Shropshire and West Midlands Agricultural Society is delighted to announce DMOS People as the new sponsors of the West Mid Showground.

The partnership will see Shrewsbury-based recruitment specialists DMOS People play a vital role in supporting the showground over the next five years, and means the showground is now officially known as the DMOS People West Mid Showground.

The announcement comes after a search was launched earlier this year following the previous long-term sponsorship of local car dealership Greenhous coming to an end.

Huge numbers

The DMOS People West Mid Showground plays host to tens of thousands of visitors each year and is home to a variety of events including the Shropshire County Show, Shrewsbury Live, the November bonfire night spectacular, Shrewsbury Folk Festival and the Camp Severn Kids Festival.

Huge numbers of campers and touring caravans also use the 100-acre site and the showground and pavilions are hired out for a range of events to a variety of groups and individuals annually.

DMOS People, based in Shrewsbury, is a partnership of three successful recruitment businesses - DM Recruitment, Opus Vitae and Simply Interview - working extensively across a range of sectors, including logistics, industrial, technical, commercial, FMCG and hospitality.

The new sponsor will have its name incorporated into the title of the showground and the naming rights also includes company branding on the main arena grandstand and a presence at all the events hosted at the showground over the course of the year.

Local landmark

Stuart Danks, of DMOS People, said: “DMOS People are thrilled to be the new sponsors of the West Mid Showground. 

“The showground is a local landmark and when the opportunity arose, we as a local company wanted to show our support. 

“The West Mid Showground is a hub of activity and part of the town's bustling culture, which DMOS People look forward to supporting for many years to come.”

Neale Sadler, of the Shropshire and West Midlands Agricultural Society, said: “We are extremely pleased to welcome DMOS People to be part of our team here at the showground. They are a well-known business in Shrewsbury, a huge part of the community, and we feel privileged that they have chosen to support the showground.

“The site, and its hosted events, have gone from strength to strength over the past few years and we are proud to be such a huge part of Shrewsbury and its tourism.”
