USING A MAGICIAN TO MAKE YOUR TRADE SHOW SUCCESSFUL
As a professional full-time magician Richard
is is ready and willing to work with your exhibition stand team to understand
the product and company as much as possible both before and during the
show - working with you to establish both your ideal customer and also
your goals for the trade show. Magic can intrigue and entertain visitors

staff who are new to 'live' situations - having performed at many different
events and for companies such as IBM, Honda, Stibo Systems and Mercedes-Benz.

To put it very bluntly, you are investing time, money, people and resources into promoting your company and you only have a few HOURS or DAYS to make it a BIG SUCCESS!

Richard is pro-active, able to make the first move if required and experienced at engaging with exhibition visitors (of all nationalities) to draw them into YOUR stand with his entertainment that can be on-message with your brand...and can even help to qualfiy good leads saving your sales team precious time and therefore money.

BESPOKE TRADE SHOW PROPS

Pictured are props that have been used working with Honda, Gloucestershire Police and recruitment experts The Fruit Group.

EXHIBITION MAGICIAN FEEDBACK
"Richard was a pickpocket entertainer during the networking reception
at an event we sponsored and he truly performed exceptionally well.
We probably did not need to arrange any other entertainment that day
as he was fantastic. Richard kept the attendees entertained and attracting
them to our booth, and he was very skillful in linking our company's
message to his performance. He is one of the nicest people I had the
pleasure to work with, very well prepared, proactive and engaged, I
give him my strongest recommendation."
COSMINA ROTARU, MARKETING COORDINATOR FOR STIBO SYSTEMS - GARTNER DATA ANALYTICS SUMMIT, LONDON
had the pleasure of working with Richard at the Infosecurity Europe
event which was held at London Olympia. We asked him to help attract
customers to our stand with his great brand of close up magic. In doing
so, we realised immediately we were getting far more than a magician.
Richard took an instant interest in our product and our targets for
the show. He kept an eye on the stand and filtered customers for us.
He kept customers entertained for as long as one of us became available,
then introduced them to us. Our customer flow through our display stand
was increased so much more than expected by having Richard's help! If
you're planning an event and want to book a magician don't even hesitate
- Richard is simply fantastic. I highly recommend him!"

Richard Parsons Gloucestershire Magician Extraordinaire... Richard attended
the launch of the Band New Honda Civic at our Honda dealerships in Bristol
and Cardiff. It is fair to say he was a smash hit with all of our customers
and dealership team. With Richard's warmth, great personality and mind-bending
Magic our launch events were both memorable and fun. A Big Thank You
Richard from all of the team here at Bristol and Cardiff Honda and more
importantly from all of our customers."
SCOTT SMITH, DEALER PRINCIPAL, CARDIFF HONDA
recently had the pleasure of working with Richard at The Finance Professional
show which was held at Olympia. We asked him to help attract people
to our stand and when we first approached him about using his magic
to increase our audience we didn't have a clear idea of how he would
actually do it. Richard knew exactly how he would draw crowds. He very
successfully used his easy charm and amazing close up magic to stop
people who would have passed us by and then after treating them to a
trick or two he led them to our stand. We manged to gain vital leads
from people who otherwise would have walked past us. Richard was fantastic
to work with he was a complete professional, proactive and fully engaged
with both us and our target audience. I couldn't recommend working with
Richard enough. We will definitely be asking him to work with us at
future trade shows as his style of entertainment is perfect for instigating
a buzz and generating interest. A large part of our success at the show
was down to Richard's unique work."
