Ops Squad

What our clients have to say

On behalf of all of us, we wanted to thank you again for this year’s work in making IAAPA Expo Europe such a success. It was a long and hard way with a challenging venue in many aspects, but you were there for us and our exhibitors all the time in ensuring that it will be a good experience. This was an ideal partnership and we are very happy to have you as a partner for our Expo!

Thank you so much, you did great!

Jakob Wahl

Event Director

IAAPA Europe

“We have had the pleasure of working with Ops Squad, as both a client and supplier, for a number of years.  What stands out is their professionalism, flexibility and willingness to go above and beyond to get the job done.  What makes them really stand out, however, is the positivity and personal touch that is present at every event on which they work.  I would not hesitate in recommending them, whatever type or scale of project.”

Laura Tythcott

Director of Client Solutions


“Ops Squad have been an integral part of the success of New Scientist Live from the outset, having worked on every edition of our very demanding show.  Whether is it helping us rig a giant Moon installation, installing a robot cocktail bar, moving a massive combine harvester or setting up a call with space, the Ops Squad team have dealt with everything we have thrown at them with good humour and supreme professionalism.  They are a pleasure to work with and we would not be able to put on the show without them.”

I just wanted to write to you directly to say a massive thank you to Ops Squad for your incredible support, expertise, guidance, help, patience and humour this last week onsite. It was invaluable having you both there throughout the show and on hand for the whole show process and cycle.”

“I’d just like to say what a pleasure it has once again been to work with you and your team at Ops Squad. As a contractor we could not wish for more. You’re always well ahead in getting all the necessary information to us which makes the build on all your shows run as smoothly as you could ever hope for. You’re a real credit to any event and I truly look forward to working with you again on the next one. Thanks again”

Ops Squad do not provide a supplier service to our organising team, they are a fully integrated members of our organising team.  Ops gurus, but commercially minded.  Their vast experience and phenomenal range of skill sets are unparalleled, and combine to deliver the complete ops solution, to the significant benefit of F2F and our events, as well as every participating client and attending visitor.  I never want to run a show without them.”

Tom Treverton

Event Director

“Ops Squad are the best!  They have a fantastic team, who nothing is too much trouble.

They always keep us up to date with floorplans, exhibitor lists, any changes to shows.

All of my team enjoy working with Ops Squad, they make our life easier of site, just by being efficient and organised”

Matthew Williams



“They are probably the hardest working Health & Safety Team in the industry! We have worked with them now for over 10 years and they have always provided excellent services for our onsite Health & Safety and space-only stand plan approvals. It’s always a joy to be onsite with them as they have become a well-loved extended part of our ops team on all our shows. They not only do an amazing job they also help educate our junior members of the team who are up skilling their onsite knowledge. They always go above and beyond like no other team we work with.”

“Ops Squad is a fantastic company whom we rely on for the operational and logistical management and safety of our events. They seamlessly deal with exhibitors and support their every need as well as negotiating with suppliers. On site, they manage all stakeholders effectively and approach every challenge with a solution mindset. We’ve worked with Ops Squad for many years now, they come highly recommended and on top of all of their attributes, they are an absolute pleasure to work with.”

I have known Anna pretty much since I started working in the industry over 20 years ago, and in more recent years I have got to know the rest of the Ops Squad team. As a supplier to Ops Squad, we get to see how all the “nuts and bolts” of events slot together from the inside. Ops Squad have a lovely combination of skill, diligence and professionalism that they demonstrate with every event, but moreover, they do it with a humour that ensures that they get the very best from their suppliers, especially on-site when the heat is on!”

John Robson

Managing Director


“It has been a pleasure to have worked with the team at Ops Squad for many years now on various shows both UK and in Europe. They are great to work with both professionally and socially and as a team we join forces to ensure our clients have a great delivery no matter what size the event! Their experience is second to none, they are very quick to respond to issues on site and we look forward to working with their team for the foreseeable future. I would have no hesitation recommending Ops Squad for any show!”

“The Ops Squad Team are an extension of our core team and consistently work their magic to ensure successful and smooth delivery of our Shows.

The team are fundamental in the execution of the Country Living campaign and management of the P&L, successfully achieving significant cost savings of £344k (23%), whilst ensuring credible shows which had more features and build demands than previous editions.

Their professional and openly friendly approach ensure communications are honest and transparent and queries are efficiently dealt with. This is enhanced with the personal repour they’ve built with exhibitors and contractors. I can’t recommend them enough!”


Fay Rayner

Event Director

“Ops Squad provide a great service to RX on managing the stand plan process for us, ensuring plans are received and meet our regulations pre-show.  They then continue this service onsite to ensure a smooth build, their staff become part of our extended team onsite working with us, supporting us and contractors through any issues that arise to ensure the show opens and are good fun with it.”

Emma Thompson

Senior Operations Manager

RX Global

“I can honestly say that I could not have done my job without Ops Squad in the first 6 months of my new role.  They are very responsive to my (many) questions as well as those from our exhibitors.  They are friendly and always there to offer advice and I can’t believe it’s taken me over 15 years in the industry to find a team who can help me like they do. Pre, during and post event they are so supportive and don’t feel like a supplier, they are part of our team.”
