ECL commenced its consultancy activities in 1974. It was founded by the late Bryan Montgomery who recognised the potential to expand trade fairs as a catalyst for economic growth, especially in the world’s emerging markets.

The ability to transfer the know-how acquired by Montgomery companies since 1895 has assisted in the set-up and development of many exhibition sectors and facilities, especially in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Established then, as now, as a subsidiary of the Montgomery parent company, ECL played a key role in identifying new markets for Montgomery and building the world-wide reputation of its exhibition interests.

For over thirty years ECL has been a member of British Expertise, the association of leading specialist UK companies with active international experience.
