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.

Senior Sales Consultant
Companies A - L

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.

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 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.

Western Regional VP,
Started with MPE: October 2003
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.Get A Booth Quote
