Show Director & MarketingManager
Clare joined Story Events as Marketing Manager after gaining 5 years experience marketing large scale B2B international exhibitions for the building & interior industry at ITE Group plc. She is delighted to be now working for Story and relishes the opportunity to let her creativity loose on these special and unique events.
Favourite Ice Cream Flavour: Rocky Road – every bite is a surprise, you never get bored!
Perfect Summer’s Day: Dining alfresco with friends and family enjoying a nice cool drink with a view of water, whether it be the sea, a river, lake or a pool – I’m a foodie, a drinkie (is that a word?) and a water baby – so all three combined is bliss.
Favourite Summer Drink: I love sitting in the sun sipping on a glass of cool bubbles – I’m not fussy! Champagne, Prosecco or Cava all do the job, as long as there are bubbles, I’m sold!
Favourite Aspect of the Show: I love the creativity, fun and love that is poured into this show from the events team – it’s no normal exhibition which makes it an absolute joy to be a part of.
Business Development Manager
Ellie joined Story Events as Business Development Manager after working on B2B Construction events at UBM for just over three years. She is really excited to be working on the Christmas and Summer exhibitions working closely with the VSL team and getting stuck in!
Favourite Ice Cream Flavour: For me I love Coconut ice cream, it’s like an ice lolly and an ice cream in one, what more could you want?
Perfect Summer’s Day: Being back home in Brighton by the seaside for the day, before lighting up a BBQ on the beach as the sun sets…did someone say marshmallows?
Favourite Summer Drink: A chilled Aperol Spritz is always a winner!
Favourite Aspect of the Show: I love the fact both the Summer and Christmas shows are dedicated to focusing on the client experience. Each exhibitor gets their creative hat on, which means we can think outside of the box, where no idea is too wacky.
Gemma joined Story’s Operations Team to help organise and deliver all of the events on the Story bespoke side of the business. Gemma is in charge of making the Shows happen and keeping Lord Crispin and Lady Skye in check! Gemma has a background in costume design, charity and events so loves the creative possibilities of the Shows theme changing year on year.
Favourite Ice Cream Flavour: Homemade banana ice cream, delish!
Perfect Summer’s Day: Sun shining, relaxing by a pool with a cocktail in hand.
Favourite Summer Drink: Well of course, it has to be Pimms! Only with the fresh strawberries, cucumber and mint though.
Favourite Aspect of the Show: The day we begin the build and seeing all the months of planning finally take shape. We are lucky enough to work with some incredible suppliers who help us bring our Show to life and who are all so lovely to work with on site
