If you visited us before the start of June this year you will have noticed a big change to the site. Revamped branding, a complete site design overhaul and completely mobile friendly. We’ve added some new content and deleted some of the old stuff to hopefully make the website easier to navigate. You may know that as of April 21st this year, Google ranks mobile friendly websites above non mobile friendly sites, so besides wanting to serve our clients better, from a business point of view the website really had to be redone.
It has also coincided with some major changes here at MPD. We have decided to discontinue our system exhibition stands in favour of concentration solely on custom exhibition stand design & build. With this in mind we now have two new designers on board. Stewart Abram joins us as our Senior Designer and Project Manager, with over a decade of experience with some of the biggest exhibition stand companies in the UK. Stewart has instantly become a hugely valuable member of the team, taking over the day to day design duties from myself. Alongside Stewart, Samantha Jordan is our new Junior Exhibition Designer. Sam is here part time at the moment, having just completed her degree course, but is already designing stands and is learning fast (mainly from Stewart, so that she doesn’t pick up my bad habits!).
Both Ben and Samantha Powell have come into the family business on the office and admin side, offering more back up and support as we grow as a company. With Stewart and Sam J handling most of the design work, I have ‘moved upstairs’ to take up more of a CEO position. My main day to day work now involves overseeing and planning for MPD’s world domination of the exhibition stand industry. I may have to get a big fluffy white cat… we already have three kitties, but none are qualified for a role as a Bond villain sidekick.
