About us

QRS was established in 1996 to provide visitor registration services at trade shows. Since 1996, we’ve registered shows in Europe, the USA and the Far East. Although many of our shows conform closely to the standard pattern for trade shows, we pride ourselves on the inventive approach we have for those shows that have special requirements. Our belief is that if it’s difficult we’ll do it, we’ll do it well and we’ll do it cost-effectively. We’ll understand what you want to achieve quickly, and chances are that we can bring some fresh ideas to improve the service and save you money too.

We believe our success comes from focussing on what organisers actually need from their exhibition registration services company. We don’t offer flashy tools that add money to your bill without adding value to our service. What’s more, there are no hidden extras: our quotations are full, detailed and inclusive.

Our commitment to excellence is reflected in our membership of ESSA, the Event Supplier and Services Association.

    Barbara has been looking after QRS shows on-site for 16 years. With a background in retail marketing and research she has an obsession with standards in serving the public.
