When Show Director Jamie Breese wanted to run the South West’s first high-profile business conference and exhibition he turned to Focal Point for development support and on-the-day operational event management.
Focal Point developed the exhibition space, liaising with the venue – Bristol’s Colston Hall – to ensure compliance, as well as managing all main contractors (AV, staging, marquee, furniture hire, exhibition stand structures). This was the first time Colston Hall had been completely given over to an exhibition with over 90 exhibitors and more than 1,400 registered delegates.
Focal Point also provided general event management to maximise revenue including advising on sponsorship and partnership opportunities.
Speakers included Karren Brady CBE and Gerry McQuade, CMO of EE.
Jamie Breese had this to say about our work:
“Thomas is my first choice for Business Showcase. A one-stop powerhouse of calm, professional and thorough event management. His understanding and production of technical matters – especially floorplans – makes him the only choice for me as the organiser and I will be hiring his expertise for Showcase 2015. Recommended”
