About Us

Founded in 2008, CloserStill Media run over 80 market leading business exhibitions in the learning, healthcare, technology, and veterinary sectors, with events in the UK, Europe, USA and Asia. Our portfolio includes some of the fastest growing, and often award-winning events including the London Vet Show, Cloud Expo Europe, Data Centre World, The Pharmacy Show, Learning Technologies, DevLearn and The Dentistry Show. We are the envy of the events sector with over 60 major industry awards including The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to work for three years in a row in 2018, 2019 and 2020!


We pride ourselves on running the single best event in these markets we serve, by creating valuable opportunities for suppliers to drive their business forward through sales opportunities created and for buyers to find great new things to do the same.

Even in this digital age you simply cant beat face to face. Exhibitions work because they bring buyers and sellers together. At their best exhibitions are informative and inspiring, vibrant and visceral for visitors and exhibitors. For event days whole industries come together. Old friendships are rekindled and valuable new contacts are made.

With 450+ employees globally, we run an exceptional graduate scheme where new talent start off their career in the VIP delegate scheme before joining different arms of the organisation in Sales, Marketing and Operations. A remarkable 49% of our UK employees are employed from our graduate scheme. 


Alex “I joined the company the year I graduated from my Events Management degree in December 2012.  I began by getting my foot in the door as an Events Administrator, quickly gaining more traction by working in every department, acquiring an oversight as to how CloserStill operates and how each department functions, and getting a good foundation in the world of events.” Alexandra Slater, Head of Operations UK 

“CloserStill Media hired me straight out of university (Geography BA) and into the telemarketing team from which I was quickly promoted into marketing. I work on a portfolio of events that operate internationally and I have been fortunate enough to travel to the US frequently, which was always a dream of mine. It was also important to me that I continue to learn and acquire new skills and CSM wholeheartedly agree with that philosophy, the years have gone quicker than I could have imagined with rapid progression and never a dull day.” Charlotte Ellicott, Head of Marketing & Content - Vet Portfolio 

Yemi  "I started my CloserStill journey in the telemarketing department in 2011, I immediately felt like part of the team and was encouraged to push myself with a clear career progression path. CloserStill has been the perfect place for me to develop my career, surrounded by a group of people that truly care. It has been a real pleasure being part of the growth and expansion of the company, and I am excited to continue to work with such a forward-looking team!" Yemi Ibidunni, Group Event Director
