Account managers, stand builders, electricians and carpet fitters take centre stage in campaign which looks at the people behind the scenes
5 June 2017 Showlite, who are celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2017, have drawn on the people behind the scenes as inspiration for the campaign which includes video, print and digital advertising and social media using the hashtag #showlitehero.
Paul Wicks, Chairman at Showlite, comments “Our team are responsible for building over 30,000 stands, laying 1,000 miles of carpet and switching on 500,000 lights each year. In total, the Showlite team support over 100 events from 50 organisers in 30 venues up and down the UK. This is a remarkable achievement and I wanted to celebrate the heroes who really are the backbone of our industry.”
Cathy Forsyth, Group Operations Manager at William Reed adds: “You really can’t put a value on the contribution the contractors play. Showlite were onsite for National Convenience Show, Farm Shop & Deli and The Forecourt Show and the service we received was exceptional. From the electricians, the shell scheme builders, the carpet fitters, the truck drivers and everyone working behind the scenes. It’s really important not to underestimate the role they play and I’m delighted to see this fantastic tribute to the unsung heroes who contribute so much to the overall success of my shows.”
The #showlitehero campaign launches on June 7 to coincide with Global Exhibitions Day.
