Design Tip: Set aside $2,000 in your renovation budget to hire professional cleaners for the reno mess left behind. It will save you tons of time and energy and allow you to enjoy the new space by throwing your post-reno party that much faster.Get A Booth Quote

Bio: Amber sells Exhibit Sales Space for the Vancouver shows when she is not busy playing sports and spending time with her beautiful, growing family. Born and raised in the Greater Vancouver Area she is a sales force to be reckoned with.
Design Tip: Make sure to set a budget limit and a target date for project completion; this will help to avoid the tendency to keep adding to the room design and increasing overall costs.Get A Booth Quote

She's even worked a show or two as an exhibitor in her previous role! Radiating with positivity and a genuine good nature, Celina is a great new addition to the team!
Design Tip: Don't leave your walls bare, add some unique pieces of art to your home. Allow them to reflect a bit of who you are, they don't have to be expensive as long as they suit you, they will suit your home.Get A Booth Quote
Operations | Show Administrator
Started with MPE: November 2015
Bio: Zoe is always warm and welcoming to our exhibitors and eager to help you solve a problem. She has worked the show office for many years and officially joined the ranks of Marketplace Events in 2015. A familiar face, and a hard working, we couldn't be happier to have Zoe on as an official member of the family.
Design Tip: Look for furniture that serves two purposes (an ottoman that opens for storage). Especially in Vancouver small spaces, avoiding clutter and having pieces of furniture that serve multiple purposes is very helpful.
VP Western Region, VP Sponsorship
Bio: Jill helms our shows, people, and mischief in Western North America, including shows in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Seattle, Tacoma and Phoenix. On the team since 2003, this rising star has been an exhibit space sales
rep with Marketplace Events, as well as a Show Manager and Group Manager.
Jill can sink her teeth into a good old-fashioned home decorating project - and she’s got the paint-spattered clothing to prove it. Occasionally she changes out of it and volunteers for Dress for Success. When taking a break from managing her budget, our favorite University of Alberta grad counts singing along to 80s hair bands and playing golf as hobbies.
Design Tip: I love revamping home decor pieces that I already own. A quick coat of paint turns a mirror, picture frame, or lamp shade into a whole new item.Get A Booth Quote
