“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you have done this week. I can honestly say I have never worked with such a professional, funny, organised and in Georgie’s words “Amazing” team!
Thank you for guiding me through my first show I literally couldn’t have done this without you and hope that you want to do it all again next year with me? Please say yes.
The show has been a great success with only positive comments which is all down to you guys and your hard work.”
Gina Hinde – LOFA
“I just wanted to say on behalf of everyone here what a fantastic job you and your team did last week and in the 2 year run up to your show. All of your staff are a credit to you and it is such a relief to know that I can totally leave all aspects of logistics to you, safe in the knowledge that everything will be dealt with promptly and professionally.”
Ian Atkinson, Director, DFA Media Ltd
“I just wanted to say thank you for helping us get started – the fact that you were willing to delay the invoice when we were getting started was one of the main reasons we were able to launch successfully and I’m incredibly grateful for that. I’ve been incredibly impressed with the service we’ve received and we look forward to working with you guys for many years to come.”
Mike Seaman, CEO, Raccoon Events
“Just want to say a huge thank you from me and the rest of the team to Maelstrom for all your hard work and effort on BAPCO. I heard the event was a success and that BAPCO were really pleased. This wouldn’t have happened without your input and of course your crystal ball!”
Vicki Evans, Exhibitions Operations Manager, MA Exhibitions
“When you’re delivering a new launch, or a large established event, the team you have supporting you on site can make all the difference. None more so than in the case of Maelstrom Event Solutions.
I have worked with Matt and his team for many years and they deliver with professionalism, a smile and to the highest standard. They have consistently added value to my events, be it saving money, time or helping us find a better solution. They work in partnership with me and truly feel like part of the team. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough…so much so that with the imminent new launches for 73 Media, they were the first name on the team sheet of suppliers.”
Ed Tranter, Founder, 73 Media
“Doesn’t time fly as I really can’t believe we’ve now completed a full year of shows working with you all.
I’ve had nothing but praise about you all from exhibitors and our own Future team and I’ve witnessed first hand how efficiently and professionally you all deal with exhibitors, visitors, contractors and our staff. It’s been an absolute pleasure and we are delighted with how well the transition has worked out from our previous operations arrangement.
On behalf of the Future team, thank you so much for all your hard work, ideas, enthusiasm and humour and roll on next year and yet more challenges!”
Nick Noble, Commercial & Events Director, Future Publishing Ltd
“Hope you have recovered from the show now (I’m not sure I have yet!)
I planned to write an email to you about how awesome you and the Maelstrom team were at the weekend and pre show, but Jo is far more eloquent than me and has perfectly described my thoughts in her email….
I must have called Anouzka about 100 times over the 3 days and she was simple amazing and dealing calmly with all my queries. You are my hero for dealing with all the dinner changes we threw your way on Saturday night and obviously a huge thank you for everything onsite.
You and your team rock!.”
Nathalie Davies, Event Director, The National Running Show
“I’ve heard nothing but good news about how everything went, but most importantly about how professional and supportive you guys were again and I can’t stress how much easier that alone makes it for us to plan and execute this event year on year. Our thanks is also extended to our Georgie and the rest of the team for getting stuck in and helping support/ run the event – again it wouldn’t have been the same without them. My last biggest thanks is for the wonderful reg area and signage! I am so pleased that it not only looked good but served great purpose – all of which wouldn’t have been possible without your input Matt – much appreciated!”
Gemma Mensah, Global Events Operations Manager, The Association of Corporate Treasurers
“I didn’t get chance last night, but wanted to say a big thank you for all your hard work on the last week and the last year in regards to the National Show. Its been a real difference since you guys took over our operations to me and the team knowing it’ll all ‘get sorted’!
We’ve had some really lovely comments too on how professional and pleasant you all are from our exhibitors too.
See you at the next one.”
Hellen Roche, Exhibition Sales Director, Homebuilding & Renovating Shows
“Thank you… for making everything so easy over the past two days!! Could not have done it without you – the contrast from last year was palpable! You’re a star! I also wanted to say a massive thank you to your team for all their help & support too. It all went off without a hitch, and a big part of that is having truly trustworthy and reliable partners like Maelstrom. It was a pleasure to work with Annie, Luke and Georgie, they are wonderful!”
Kate Platts, Managing Director, Youth Sport Direct
“I want to say a big thank you for managing the show over the last few days and in the months leading up to the event. Also, please thank Georgina for all her help and assistance. I very much appreciated the extra mile you went to. Your graphic skills certainly came in handy for the last minute changes! Having you on board has resulted in one of most relaxing event experiences I have ever had!”
Nav Mann, Managing Director, Bluewater Events Ltd
“I just wanted to drop you a note to say that, in the 25+ years I have been working in events, you, Georgie & Luke, have to be the best operations team I have ever worked with. Nothing was too much trouble. You dealt with some very unhappy people (not of your own making) admirably and all of you were brilliant to have around. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone, and sincerely hope that I will have the opportunity to work with you again in the near future.”
Hellen Beveridge, Head of Marketing – The WI Fair, Upper Street Events Ltd
“Thank you for a great job helping with the exhibitors of the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show. We have received mainly positive feedback which indicates and increase in customer satisfaction so please extend my gratitude to the whole team for help to make that happen. I look forward to working with you and your team again at the next show.”
Gina Lindholm, Senior Administrator Sport Development, Royal Yachting Association
“Showcase was the best exhibition we have held – more exhibitors, better stands, more visitors and a better experience for exhibitors and visitors alike. We could not have achieved this without excellent suppliers and you and Andy certainly played a very important part. Wishing you continued success and I hope we will have the opportunity of working together again on the next Showcase event.”
Andrew Chalk, BBSA
Wanted to say a massive thank you for all your support on the show. It was an absolute pleasure to work with you on this and really appreciated all your guidance and experience for all the wonderful bumps the show threw our way. Let me know when you are down our neck of the woods and we’ll hook up for a de-brief and a catch up, and dare I mention it to discuss next year?!
Dan Edwards, Group Operations Director, Mash Media
“Once again thanks a million to you and your team for a fantastic job and for always having a smile on your face despite the pressure and me asking you bloody stupid questions all day long – we really do appreciate it.”
Paul Stott, Managing Director, Media Generation Ltd
“I wanted to send a massive thank you to you and your team. It was such a pleasure working with you all onsite and in the build-up to the show. Nothing was too much trouble and I for one came to rely on you so heavily to help take some of the load off which was invaluable from some who is nearly 8 months pregnant! I just wanted to say as well that you have built up such a hard-working and lovely team. All of them are a credit to your company. I will be sending an email around the other EDs in the business highly recommending you.”
Katie Ventresca, Event Director – The WI Fair, Upper Street Events Ltd
