52. ExpoCart

From furniture to AV equipment, this marketplace enables you to hire everything for your exhibition stand in just a few clicks

Founders: Jasmine Eilfield and Ryan Farquharson

If you’ve ever exhibited at a conference, exhibition or event then you’ll know that you need a lot of kit, and time on your hands, to get your exhibition stand sorted.

In the past, you would have had to search around for graphics, displays, furniture etc. and then would’ve had to source these items from multiple suppliers.

Thankfully, three year-old start-up ExpoCart is bringing exhibiting into the 21st century with a one stop shop platform which pulls everything together.

ExpoCart covers all the major UK exhibition venues and has the UK’s leading and highest quality exhibition suppliers on the platform – meaning they have the best choice of products.

Backed by almost £1m in funding, the business enables exhibitors to order everything they need for all of their exhibitions without needing to source quotes and order from multiple suppliers.

Created by 24-year-old founders Jasmine Eilfield and Ryan Farquharson – graduates of the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy – ExpoCart has already helped over 2,500 exhibitors to organise their stands at major venues such as ExCel London, Olympia, NEC Birmingham, and Manchester EventCity.

The business has an exciting time ahead for its team of 12 as Eilfield and Farquharson plan to launch a new vertical; an online printed displays shop.

They also intend to launch ExpoCart in a few European cities in the next few months.

And, while the founders say breaking into a market that hasn’t changed for hundreds of years has been challenging, their ambition for ExpoCart is to make it the easiest and largest platform that exhibitors around the world use to order all the equipment that they need.
