Started with MPE: November 2007

Bio: Tyson started with Marketplace Events as an Exhibit Sales Consultant and sold the heck out of our shows to make his way to Senior Sales Consultant. He is now the Show Manager for the Vancouver Home Shows.  Originally from Millet, AB Tyson has been in Vancouver for the past 12 years working in various sales and Management positions before landing at MPE. Hard working and full of enthusiasm, he is always encouraging his team to build an incredible show and, is often the last one in the office at the end of the day.

Design Tip: Set aside $1,000 in your renovation budget to hire professional cleaners for apres dirty work. It will save you tons of energy and allow you to enjoy the new space by throwing your post-reno cocktail party all that much faster.

Assistant Show Manager

Started with MPE: March 2013

Bio: Stephanie is the model for calm, cool, collected and rational. There is nothing short of a nuclear holocaust that will ruffle the feathers of this soul.  With a BA in Psychology from Arizona State University (she is a lucky dual citizen and hails from AZ) she has been working in event production since she moved to Vancouver in 2012. Although not originally from BC, being a social media guru she is dialed into everything Vancouver and keeps us in the know.

Design Tip: Color on the walls! I love having an accent wall in a bold color in a room (not every wall and not necessarily in every room). It really adds a unique character and mood to each area of your home.

Started with MPE:  June 2010

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.

There is nothing this gal can't help you with. Originally from a small lake town in the interior, she is a loyal BC native. Radiating with positive and a genuine good nature, Sheryl is a valuable new member of our team and we look forward to her return next summer.

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.

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.

Jill Kivett, Regional Director, Western Canada

Jill Kivett
Regional Director, Western Canada
Sponsorship Director

604.639.2288 ext. 221

Email: JillK@mpeshows.com
Started with MPE: October 2003

Bio: Jill helms our shows, people, and mischief in Western Canada, including the long-running Vancouver Home + Design Show and BC Home + Garden Show, and five home shows in the thriving Alberta market. 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.
