"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, Managing Director, The National Running Show

"I just wanted to drop you a note to say that, in the 25+ years I have been working in events, you, Yvonne, 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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"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

"Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for your support in the weeks running up to and at the event over the last few days. Thank you for all the answered questions and phone calls as I got my head around everything and muddled through the first (of many I hope!) of my YST events!"

Emma Young, Senior Marketing Officer, Youth Sport Direct

"I’d just like to say a huge thank you on behalf of everyone here to Yvonne, Georgie, Heather and you for your sterling work this week. We couldn’t have done it without you and you made our work so much easier knowing we had you and the team onsite."


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

"Just wanted to say a big thank you for all your hard work before the event and onsite. We’ve had some great feedback to the event and I was delighted with the look and feel of the exhibition in particular."

Denis Murphy, Sponsorship Director, The Association of Corporate Treasurers

"So….another very successful exhibition – lots of positive feedback on the venue and exhibition hall and the general organisation of it which I cannot take credit for and would not!"

Catherine Riley, Events Manager, British Blood Transfusion Society

"Just a quick note to thank you once again for your help and assistance over the last week. I have worked on many exhibition builds over the years, and have never experienced easier build up and breakdowns than when you have had supervision. I am pleased to learn that you will be running subsequent exhibitions for LOFA, and look forward to working with you again."

Chris Fitton, Director, Europa Leisure (UK) Ltd.

"Just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help at the YST conference and the loan of the TV!! Every year you guys are brilliant and once again you set the standard."

Nicholas Heyworth, National Parasport Manager

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your hard work and patience on this year’s Dinghy Show. We could not have done it without you!"

Charlotte Pearson, Shows Co-ordinator, Royal Yachting Association

"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

"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
