"Having known Sarah for many years, she was an obvious choice for us to manage our Operations for our launch show EcoVelocity. The show was particularly challenging to organise, but with Sarah's know-how, attention to detail and outright determination to get everything right, it was a great success. Sarah would go to great lengths to overcome event difficulties, regularly performing well beyond the call of duty. Sarah was utterly dependable, knowledgeable and a real pleasure to work with. I would thoroughly recommend her to work on any event or project."
Giles Brown, Managing Director, IGME Ltd
"Sarah worked with the GSMA on the planning and delivery of the Mobile World Congress during the years 2007, 2008 and 2009. Sarah brought a wealth of experience and industry knowledge to the table and was instrumental to the success of the shows. Over the years Sarah worked alongside the team at GSMA to ensure new and innovative elements were introduced to the show thus ensuring it remained cutting edge. Onsite Sarah demonstrated an ability to work effectively with both the venue plus key suppliers to ensure the visitor and exhibitor experience was a very positive one. I would highly recommend Sarah and EPM to any company looking for first class event and exhibition expertise."
Mary King, Operations Director, GSMC Ltd
"Sarah and her team offer us a wealth of industry experience that we could
not find anywhere else. We have developed an excellent working relationship
with them over the years and know that their advice is not only impartial
but also always right on the mark."
James Gower, Director of Marketing, National Boat Shows Ltd
"FESPA faced considerable operational problems in previous years, it was therefore essential that we got it right in 2005. We decided that we need to bring on board some expertise. We appointed EPM not only because of their experience in running large machinary shows, but also because of their overall knowledge and understanding of running events and exhibitions and working with Trade Associations.
They slotted easily in to the team and delivered a first class service which was praised not only by ourselves but most importantly by our exhibitors. FESPA was the most successful event to date which was a fantastic team effort and the operational side of things ran like clockwork."
Frazer Chesterman, Event Director, FESPA
"As a startup exhibition organizer, I needed an experienced and reliable operations team. Sarah more than exceeded my expectations. She is quite simply the best in the business and the fantastic feedback we had on the day, and our very high repeat booking rate are largely due to her efforts. Look no further! "
Piers Bearne, Managing Director, Rock Media, The Wireless LAN Event in May 2003
"The real success of the British Cheese Awards is thanks to the team of experts who operate behind the scenes, in particular I would single out Sarah Gladstone who manages to solve or knows a man who can, virtually any problem the weather or the public or the venue can throw her way. I would hate to run an event without her."
Julliet Harbutt, Culinary Events Ltd, organizer of The British Cheese Awards
"The operations of any show are vital to the visitor and exhibitor experience alike and Sarah did a first class job in getting and then keeping everything running smoothly. She turned her hand to anything and everything, even traffic control when necessary. She has solutions not problems!"
Andrew Reed, Events & Exhibitions Director, William Reed Exhibitions
"Heidelberg UK have traditionally booked a whole hall at the NEC to exhibit their equipment at IPEX. When in 1997, IIR appointed a female to run the operational part of their international exhibition I feared the worst. How can a thirty something female succeed in this male dominated chauvinistic industry of ours? But succeed she did. She commanded respect from Managing Directors to international truck drivers alike. The stands were built on time, they ran smoothly and were dismantled efficiently. Sarah can have the patience of a Saint but when necessary she can show her teeth and get things done by sheer force of personality."
Wolfgang Gorth, Managing Director of Heidelberg UK from 1975-2000
"It was essential that the operational and technical elements of the Exhibiting Show were professional, accurate and of the highest standard. Not only did EPM deliver on all 3 counts but the smoothness of the process while they took on the unenviable task of managing a project involving 120 contractors was remarkable! "
Simon Burton, The Exhibiting Show
