What they do
Clarion Events is an events company that continues to host family-friendly events such as the Baby Show, the Horse Show and the Spirit of Christmas. However, since 2008 it has acquired six arms fairs and joined the arms industry trade body ADS. Clarion sees arms fairs as big business and a key area for growth in profits.
What they say
In response to CAAT’s campaign, Clarion says: "A small minority have tried to convince others that DSEi helps to perpetuate the illegal arms trade. This is not true." Clarion argues that because what it does is legal, it is legitimate. Our message is simple: This is NOT OK.
What we can do
- Attend CAAT’s demonstrations at Clarion’s family events and encourage visitors and exhibitors to challenge Clarion to drop their arms portfolio.
