Steve Reeder

Logistics guru and a lover of planning and budget spreadsheets, I thrive on working out how we get your stuff there on time, in full, with all the right permissions and of course in budget! Sometimes referred to as ‘Steve’ll-Fix-It”,  I can help in getting big boxes through small holes and help you write a Risk Assessment that will make any H&S Officer weep with joy! I’m here to ensure your fantastic exhibitor plans aren’t thwarted at the last minute by not having read the Exhibitor Manual thoroughly.

In addition you may find me behind the Rebel Heart Event Bar in our 3.5T Mobile Goddess called Siris (the Mesopotamian goddess of beer!!) where we can help you source and or brew your own labeled beer and cider and concoct your very own bespoke cocktails especially for your event.

It’s all about the story for me – who are you telling it to, why would they be interested and what are they going to do as a result? Doesn’t sound like it’s got much to do with trade shows, right? Wrong, it’s all about engaging with your audience before, during and after the event to show visitors you understand their problem and how your product or service is the solution! I’m also really keen to help you pick the best squad for your trade show – surprisingly it might not be your sales team!

As a true Trade Show Geek I’ve worked in and around exhibitions for over 20 years seeing them from an exhibitor, visitor and organiser perspective. I now  inspire people and businesses to unleash their inner exhibitionist and I’m passionate about driving better returns from all the money, time and effort invested in live events to generate a sustainable sales pipeline. As a consultant, coach, presenter and project manager I help to evolve your trade show planning and execution to generate a stronger return…and have more fun with exhibitions!

I also run a successful Celebrancy business, Rebel Heart Ceremonies where I conduct Weddings, Baby Namings, Funerals and Corporate & Private MC duties.
