Who am i?


Professional, dependable, scalable support

A freelancer who works like he’s permanent.

Focal Point Event Management is run by me, Thomas Heiser, a freelance event manager.

I’ve been working in the events industry for over 16 years both as an in-house event manager and as a commercial exhibition and conference organiser. Having sat on both sides of the event management “fence” I have first-hand experience of how to get the best from an event whether you want to organise a conference, develop a road show or are taking part in an exhibition.

As a career event professional I offer a one-stop-shop for tailored support; hitting the ground running and leading projects solo or integrating with existing teams.

What I do

Events that deliver results

Over the years I’ve worked on conferences of up to 60,000 people; exhibitions at Earls Court, Excel, the NEC and beyond; and pop-up events in solar powered marquees on Bristol’s College Green. I’ve even organised promotional “protest” marches through central London. No two events are the same, but if it involves getting a group of people together in one place then chances are I’ve done something similar.

I cover the full technical and operational event life-cycle; from strategic event design through to marketing/website/app development, production, on-site delivery and evaluation.

For me, it’s business as usual.

If there’s one theme that runs though most of my work it’s sustainability – whether that’s the clients I work with or the way I deliver my projects. While I don’t work exclusively in the environmental sector, I have become known for my projects with sustainability and renewable energy companies where my sector knowledge helps ensure my events are on-message and speak to audiences appropriately.

Get in touch

I’m always happy to talk events.
