Chris Hall


Event director, Upper Street Events

Nomination: I have been promoted three times in three years, moving from sales manager to event director, as well as starting a new cross company role as Exhibitor Insight director. While event director of New Designers the combined team effort resulted in going £52,201.49 over target in 2016 (having been under in 2015).

In five years’ time: I will be achieving targets, hitting overage, making opportunities, staying ahead in the industry, bringing exhibitors and visitors together, seeking growth potential, maximising sponsorships, brining in new visitors, retaining existing exhibitors and, of course, having fun!
