The one-stop shop platform offering exhibitors all the equipment they need for their stands
Founders: Jasmine Eilfield and Ryan Farquharson
Founded: January 2015
Rather than going to university, Jasmine Eilfield and Ryan Farquharson opted to attend the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy – a course dedicated to equipping students with entrepreneurial skills. It was here that they had their first taste of exhibitions and conferences; running a small events business together that invited successful entrepreneurs to share their experiences and offer advice.
Their familiarity with appearing at exhibitions led to the birth of ExpoCart – the start-up which is on a mission to “radically improve exhibitors’ experience in organising the equipment they need for their exhibition stand”.
The platform operates a one-stop-shop for exhibition products from the UK’s leading brands, saving exhibitors time and money by eliminating the need to source quotes and order from multiple suppliers. Customers can hire or buy everything from carpets to display cases and payment systems to display screens, which ExpoCart delivers, sets up, derigs and collects.
To date, ExpoCart has helped more than 2,000 exhibitors – including Ve Interactive, iCandy, Breast Cancer Now, Mane ‘n Tail, Square pie, Grant Thornton and Booking.com – organise their stands at major venues across the country such as ExCel London, Olympia, NEC Birmingham and Manchester EventCity.
The coming months will see ExpoCart expand its range of products as it looks to build a supply network that enables it to become the default platform for exhibition equipment – not just in the UK, but across the world…
