Employee Spotlight - Vicky

Vicky is one of our highly experienced on-site managers, having worked in the industry for 20 years!

Our on-site managers are tasked with managing the registration team for the build-up and duration of the show, allowing the organiser to focus on other areas knowing that registration and front-of-house is in our team's capable hands.

They are there to take any worry away from the organiser, setting up and managing the equipment to make sure it's ready to welcome attendees. As the first face the visitor will see, our team are welcoming, helpful and friendly, whilst making sure the right people are coming in and managing the queues.

Our on-site team provide the exhibitors with a lead capture service and advise the exhibitors on their chosen device, before processing and uploading the data for sometimes hundreds of exhibitors at an event. Our on-site managers are always available to the organiser, keeping them updated with statistics, and sometimes, due to the experience of each of our on-site managers (having worked at hundreds of events at many different venues), they can even help with the unexpected - they've probably experienced it before!
