Our Story

An experienced events team

Who always like to go the extra mile

An experienced team who have delivered world class international events ranging in size from 150 – 5000+ attendees across a range of disciplines.  Much more than an event management company – they immerse themselves within the sectors they serve, partner with the key players and have a proven track record of delivering events that make a difference.

The company is headed up by Versha Carter and Sophie Potten who together have launched and developed a number of international exhibitions and conferences around the world. Versha Carter was the previous owner of Intelligent Exhibitions which she founded in 2006 and worked with Sophie Potten to deliver an international portfolio.

With over 30 years experience in the industry, the team is now focused on developing events that are closely aligned with their personal values in areas where they believe they can make a difference.
