For businesses, it is a perfect opportunity to promote their wares to the widest possible audience. People come to Crufts to have a good time and to buy treats for their canine friends. It means you have a captive audience ready and waiting to discover your products.
Hire professional experienced staff for Crufts
Obviously, it is also very hard work, with most stands needing to hire specialist support staff to help out. This is where we can help out. We provide local exhibition staff who really know the NEC. Most of them have worked at Crufts before, and are familiar with the layout, the activities and the best ways to get good sales results. Naturally they also enjoy meeting so many bouncy, chatty dogs!
Contacting us as early as possible to discuss your staffing requirements is essential simply because most of our staff get booked up far in advance of the exhibition dates. Companies know our staff and often rebook as soon as one show ends, and thoughts begin to turn to the next.
Apart from sales staff, we can also provide event staff, demonstrators, sampling staff and hospitality staff.
