Media 10 Congratulates its EN 30 under 30 winners

Media 10 is proud to have 3 of its staff win EN’s 30 under 30 this year.

Lee Newton, CEO says the company’s biggest strength is its staff and he is thrilled that they have been recognised for their hard work and success at Media 10.

“Our teams are talented, creative and passionate about what they do, and that shines through as we organise some of the best shows in the world.

We give our staff the space to be creative and there are plenty of opportunities for those who want to grab them.”

Here’s what our winners had to say;

Charlotte James
Features co-ordinator
EN Winner 30 under 30

“To be part of this year’s Exhibition News’ 30 under 30 group was very unexpected. When I received the email I was chuffed, it means that my team and directors appreciate the work I do and can see me progressing with my career in the industry. When I first received the award I was only thinking about the recognition from Media 10, but attending the event in May opened my eyes up to further opportunities with Exhibition News and the industry.

I started as an intern at Media 10 when I was 19, not having worked in the industry before. I have always been up for starting at the bottom and working my way up in the company to gain experience and learn from my team and management and that is exactly what I have achieved. I have learnt a lot from my team in a short space of time and that I am really grateful for. I am always up for new challenges to help push myself in the right direction and to help me gain new skills and am always asking for more work and offering a hand with other shows under our portfolio of events.

By the end of this year I would like to progress to be a senior member of the team where I can help others the way my team has helped me grow not just in my career and skills but as a person.

Being selected as an inspiring individual under 30 years old by Exhibition News makes all the hard work over the last few years at Media 10 worthwhile and I have thoroughly enjoyed every part of it and being part of the company/family. It is a great feeling knowing your work gets recognised in your team and the industry. As long as I am lugging boxes around a venue and working with contractors on exciting shows I am happy.”

Sally Hogarth
Senior Exhibition and Event Designer
EN Winner 30 under 30

“It’s great to be recognised as an inspiring individual under 30 years old by Exhibition News. Media 10 have been very supportive of my career since day one and have given me so many exciting opportunities as a Designer.

Creating the 12 metre high Main Stage for UK Construction Week, a Monochrome Catwalk for 100% Optical and a series of public street installations for Clerkenwell Design Week have been some of my personal highlights so far.

Over the next year I am looking forward to working on some exciting new features for 100% Design and Grand Designs Live, and I’ve no doubt other interesting projects along the way.”

Will Garwood
Assistant Marketing Manager
EN Winner 30 under 30

“It was a great privilege to win the 30 Under 30 EN Awards this year. To be recognised within the industry and especially to come from your peers is a great achievement.

I have been at Media 10 now for over 4 years and picked up invaluable experience along the way. I started out as an English Graduate with no idea about marketing, and under great tutorship and opportunities to develop, have carved out a career for myself in this field. I couldn’t have done it without the management team around me and the Media 10 ethos of creativity and risk taking!

I was a part of the 100% Design team that won Best Marketing Campaign and recently UK Construction Week which won Best Trade Launch so that recognition has helped me along the way. I really enjoyed my time on Clerkenwell Design Week as this was a great platform to explore different creative ways to market live events.

I am aiming to build on the success of UK Construction Week in October and consolidate its position within the industry as the best trade show for the entire construction sector!”

As Media 10 continues to grow, there will inevitably be more opportunities for talented people to join and progress within the company.

Media 10 employs over 270 staff across offices in Loughton, Glasgow, Cape Town and Shanghai.
