TIM WORTHINGTON - MANAGING DIRECTOR

From the age of 15, I have been working in the exhibition industry. Following in the footsteps of my father (Terry) who established Exhibition & Display Services (EDS) around 1988. I grew up installing expo's ,and you would often see me at the bottom or top of a 5 metre high extension ladder or running around for my father at the RNA Showgrounds for Brisbane’s annual events. It was clear to me that I too held a passion for the industry. Throughout the early 2000’s I was leading the EDS builds around South east - West and North QLD including annual home shows, art expo's and mining expo's. In 2006, I went for a working holiday to London and I become an Installation Manager at Skyline Whitespace, a custom expo stand design company. During my brief time there I was tasked with the management of the installation's of some of their biggest clients in and around Europe including GE money, Conrad hotels and the Deputy Prime Minister's Office. I returned to Australia with an abundance of ideas and passion to grow EDS further to be inline with what I had seen abroad. I actioned my plans and brought the company up to speed with things that we take for granted now like email, websites and catalogues. In 2012 my father retired and I soon moved location and started focusing on corporate art and business exhibitions, custom expo stand designs and quality furniture hire services. I am still onsite at most jobs and enjoy nothing more than seeing a vision come to reality. I am passionate about my business and the industry, and look forward to seeing how we continue to evolve and innovate.

    5 star review  Communication was great from the beginning, and we were very happy with our display boards rental. Delivery was smooth and punctual - the whole process was smooth and professional.
