Our Sales Team
We have worked together for over 15 years and our sponsorship solutions team are specialists in creating new and exciting possibilities for a whole range of clients: Our motto is “Value is perception not a calculation, it is something a customer feels not something a company proves”.
We work hand in hand with our clients to create a joint method of brand awareness whether as a headline sponsor for a leading UK event or a method of sampling to exactly the right people at the right time for their campaign.
Our Distribution Team
At all events we have well-appointed pick up points with clear signage around the show
Our liveried distribution team who have worked with us for over 10 years fully understand how to respond to the show visitors, answering any questions or queries politely and effectively, often managing big queues which at times are numbering hundreds of people waiting to collect their goody bags to take home with them as their parting gift from the show,“Leaving them with a feeling of being valued”.
