Bio: With a background in business management, leadership and recruitment, Tyson started with Marketplace Events as an Exhibit Sales Consultant in 2007 and made his way through the ranks to become the Show Manager for the Vancouver Home Shows. Originally from a small farm in Central Alberta, Tyson has been in Vancouver since 2003. Hard working and full of enthusiasm, he is always encouraging his team to build an incredible event and is often the last one in the office at the end of the day.

Design Tip: Set aside $2,000 in your renovation budget to hire professional cleaners for post-reno dirty work. It will save you tons of energy and time allowing you the chance to enjoy your new space a whole lot sooner.

@AmbercBeaton

Bio: Amber was born to sell and has been working as an outside sales representative for most of her professional career. When she is not busy playing volleyball, coaching her kids sports teams or packing up and taking off into the wilderness with her family, Amber can be found selling her way through the two Vancouver Home Shows. 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.

YVONNE SHARPE 
EXHIBIT SALES CONSULTANT
COMPANIES M - Z

Phone: 604.639.2288 ext. 227
Email: YvonneS@mpeshows.com
Started with MPE: May 2019

Bio: With over six years in corporate events and even a couple stints as support staff for the Home Shows under her belt, Yvonne joins the team with a strong knowledge of our industry and a ton of great experience. Born and raised in the Lower Mainland, Yvonne is extremely familiar with her territory, her clients and her home turf, making them move onto the Vancouver Home Shows team a natural fit!

Design Tip: I'm a huge fan of upcycling items of furniture that I've loved for years. When I want a fresh new look, I'll buy some new fabric, some rivets, grab a couple cans of paint and before long, my living room looks like it's full of brand new furniture! And the cost savings are immense!

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 hard working, Zoe keeps our office in line and our exhibitors in check.

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.

@JillKivett

Bio: Jill helms our shows, people, and mischief in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest, including shows in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Seattle. On the team since 2003, this rising star has been an exhibit space sales rep, as well as a Show Manager, Group Manager and Regional Director.

Jill can sink her teeth into a good old-fashioned home decorating project - and she’s got the paint-spattered clothing to prove it. When taking a break from managing her budget, our fearless leader can be found exploring the many dog parks and hiking trails around Vancouver with her Rhodesian Ridgeback Dalton.

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.
