Over the summer we were pleased to welcome two new staff members to the Exhibition Services team. Steve Crook joins as Stand Build Project Manager and Emily Stewart as Sales and Marketing Co-ordinator. We're very excited to see what they can both bring to our team!
New to South-West London, Steve brings his industry knowledge across from a graphics and signage company. A huge fan of live music, he has attended Glastonbury Festival seven times and his favourite artist is Beck. He also has a hidden talent for croquet which we discovered on a recent team day out!
Emily is also starting a new chapter of her life by making the transition into the events industry. A trained zookeeper (yes, really!), she has spent several years volunteering with a conservation website and running her own blog, commentating on the latest wildlife issues.
Big Impact | Portable Environment
New to Exhibition Services; the Formulate Meeting Pod is more than a graphic backdrop as it allows exhibitors to create a portable environment. The stretched fabric graphic transforms the system into a functional, branded space.
Formulate products are designed to be reused and rebranded, so if you are planning a series of events the Meeting Pod allows you to change your promotional message as often as required.
The curved structure of the Meeting Pod offers a space approximately 3m wide x 2m deep which can easily accommodate furniture, providing a branded space to showcase your products or services. Whilst it is slightly more challenging to build than a pop-up, it is sure to create an impact at shows and make you stand out to potential clients.
