Nothing beats the face to face contact in the sales process. That’s why exhibitions are still the best marketing platform to generate quality leads and build long term client relationships. I thrive on delivering the B2B environment for exhibitors to be successful in and I’m always looking at ways to assist them to become even more profitable.

“It’s the satisfaction of watching an exhibitor’s panic turn to calm on opening day, enjoying a laugh with exhibitors and the show team, then seeing a years’ worth of hard work come to fruition; that’s what has made organising events for the last 7 years so much fun.”

The final results are the best part of working at XPO. Seeing a vibrant trade exhibition come together, connecting businesses with customers is a great experience. The positive feedback that we receive from both exhibitors and visitors, with new business relationships starting after each exhibition makes the work that goes into it all worthwhile.
