Supplier of the month: Showlite

The Event Works’ experienced team have worked with hundreds of events suppliers over the years, and know those that deliver. Working with suppliers on an event is all about trust, so every month TEW will share our little black book of reliable contacts you need to know about. This month we’re bigging up Showlite.

Showlite event suppliers

When the going gets tough, the tough get together. In 2010, we approached Anthony Smith from Showlite with an unusual and ambitious plan: a sizeable exhibition (2500m), which needed to be built, delivered and broken down six times in just three short weeks, and moved from Edinburgh to Exeter… 

While regional roadshows are increasingly en vogue, as they allow exhibitors to reach visitors that other shows cannot, we were unaware of any project of the same scale being delivered in such a tight timeline. We turned to Showlite, a comprehensive events solutions provider, and the exhibitors and visitors were delighted with the end result. The roadshow was even recognised as Best Launch Show by the Exhibition News Awards!  We have been working with Anthony and his team ever since and they have helped us to deliver some of our hardest projects, as well as continuing to work on the roadshow which (it is no exaggeration to say) we literally couldn’t do it without them. 

In a marketplace dominated by the big players and the bit-part players, Showlite offer something distinct. Large enough to deliver the bigger projects, and small enough to provide a more personal, professional approach, we find Showlite represent an particularly good fit for small to medium-sized organisers.

We are pleased to be working with Showlite again next Autumn, as they provide our roadshow of exhibitions with an array of essential event services, including: shell scheme, feature build, electrics, lighting, furniture, flooring, logistics and design.
