Trade Shows and Exhibitions

    I specialize in providing a variety of services and practical help to companies on a short-term contract basis at trade shows, exhibitions and conferences. This can encompass anything from logistics (pre-show set-up/post-event breakdown); working ‘front of house’ on your exhibition stand or on more general duties - freeing up your sales people to prospect for new business.


    For exhibition and conference organisers my extensive face-to-face experience and strong inter-personal skills mean than I am well placed to act as a 'single point of contact' for exhibitors and delegates.
    If you need an experienced and reliable ‘extra pair of hands’ at any of your forthcoming events – in the UK or further afield, please contact me.

    Prior to August 2015 I worked for over 15 years on the Flightglobal portfolio at Reed Business Information (RBI) selling digital and print advertising, and event sponsorship to a wide range of ‘blue chip’ customers in the aviation industry in Europe and the Middle East. My clients included manufacturers such as Airbus Group, CFM International, Eurofighter and ATR, MRO providers (Lufthansa Technik, SR Technics), airports (Vienna, Helsinki, Munich, Lisbon, Athens, Bahrain etc.) and consumer brands with an aerospace heritage such as Breitling - as well as many leading global media agencies (PHD International, MEC, Zenith, Gravity Global). My role involved extensive travel to meet clients at their offices, as well as attending major industry events (Paris, Farnborough and Dubai air shows, the SITA Air Transport Summit; the Routes series of conferences; and the ITB Berlin and World Travel Market shows - expertise that I can draw upon to help customers in my new role.

    From 1987 to 1999 I worked in a variety of b2b sectors for RBI on New Scientist; Railway Gazette International, and Computer Weekly magazines, so my knowledge is not restricted to the aviation industry.

    Prior to this my first media role was with The Guardian, based in London.
