David has a background in computing, from software development to international sales to the advanced mathematics of bingo tickets. In 1996 David saw the need for reliable, cost-effective, computer-based visitor registration services at trade shows, and set up QRS to fill the gap. He is a keen cook, organist, cyclist and oarsman (but not all at once).

Customer Support Manager
Marc, who has a background in IT management, has worked across many sectors of QRS since joining the company, all of which gives him the perfect credentials for his new role as Customer Support Manager. Marc looks after each registration project, ensuring that nothing is overlooked and is the main customer liaison contact once a show is up and running, attending to our customers every need. In his leisure time Marc is passionate about music, plays squash and does as he is told.
Barbara has been looking after QRS shows on site for 10 years. With a background in retail marketing and research she has an obsession with standards in serving the public. This is just the ticket when she is behind the counter with QRS, but makes her a scary proposition when the positions are reversed. She relaxes by playing squash.
