the creators

Creative, professional and friendly

Everyone Showcase team member you see is passionate about producing inspirational events.

Founder & MD

Ben Collings

As you can see from the title, he’s the man in charge. He’s good with numbers and planning, but more importantly he’s friendly and loves a chat (explains his fixation on client service) . When he’s not busy running Showcase, he’s dreaming of anything with two or four wheels, that’s fast and noisy. Surprise, surprise his alter ego is Valentino Rossi.

He claims his party trick is multi-tasking, but more importantly he believes in leading by example and respecting his colleagues’ differing skill set

Drop him line, call, check him out…

Strategic Account Director

Dave Harding-Lyle

With over 16 years’ experience in live events in all their guises, we are still struggling to understand why Madge Bishop is his alter ego. When he’s not on Ramsay Street he’s busy seeking new business opportunities and managing new projects. His passion, apart from watching Made in Chelsea, is ensuring all projects are delivered on budget, on time and surpassing customer expectations.

Get in touch, he’ll get back asap. (Unless he’s walking the dogs on Newgale beach)

Head of Technical & Operations

James Whisby

Strange but true, this man who can make a chicken from a towel and sees himself as Banana Man, is quite the master of building new relationships and keeping existing clients happy. He is technical too and works closely with his design colleagues to make sure clients’ brand messages get across effectively. He is often to be found in the set and stage department - that’s when he’s not playing darts and snooker.

Give him a ring or email. Warning…you might find the conversation turning to steak

Digital Project Manager

Matthew Wilson

Lover of all things technical with 20 years of experience within the live events sector, including operations to project management. When he isn’t making things run smoothly on the job you can find him playing computer games and researching new and upcoming technology in his spare time.
When he’s had enough screen time he likes to get out and about enjoying long walks with the dogs and kayaking.

Call or email. If no immediate response, he’s researching a new hobby.

AV Technician

Kieran Watts

Running the warehouse, providing technical assistance to all our events, cycling and playing the guitar & sax… the list of what makes Kieran’s day is endless. Kieran makes sure that when any equipment leaves us it’s completely client ready. Then when it’s on-site he’s double checking it all over again, this love of scrutiny could come from watching all that F1 and imagining himself as Kimi Raikkonen.

Get in touch… up to you how you do it.


Hannah Drysdale

She’s creative through and through, not only when it comes to designing our events, but making origami stars and penguins and let’s not forget her in-car diva antics. Working in the design team on all creative aspects of our events, Hannah a keen skier (she likes to see herself as Lindsey Vonn), relishes the variety that her role brings on a daily basis.

Give her a break from The Mirror’s Weird News and get in touch

Accounts Assistant

Nicola Gardner

Good with numbers - thankfully. Nicola can usually be found behind a spreadsheet, when she’s not then it’s traveling somewhere exotic, discovering new places and the local food. Whilst she might be at work sitting behind a computer, she’s an adrenalin junkie - rock climbing, scuba diving and kayaking are just some of her favourites.

She loves her job - her words not ours. She also loves vegan food and before you ask, yes she does get enough protein.

Call or email. If no immediate response, she’s researching a new hobby.

Project Support

Katie Juliff

Katie brings bags of exhibition knowledge to Showcase operations team, especially on the supplier side, which of course is extremely useful. Her role within the team is integral to project delivery, working closely with Head of Operations she provides day-to-day support to the projects team during delivery of all global events.

She also brings a love of bottomless brunches, who isn't a fan of those, plus having a laugh with friends and family as well as walking her dog. Talking of which, you can often find her at the gym practising her downward dog as well other forms of exercise.

Senior Designer

Chloe Green

When Chloe’s not designing, she’s seeing inspiration on her travels. She’s one of the people who gives everything we do such a creative edge, with her vivid imagination it’s no surprise she admires Professor Trelawney. It’s the variety in her role she loves… interiors, exteriors and interactive environments are all in day’s work, all interspersed with eating cheese.
