If you are looking for success at your next trade show please read the following testimonials to Phil Jay trade show and exhibition magician.

I feel compelled to write to thank you for your tremendous hard work at last week’s conference and becoming a member of the Supra team! Your talent, professionalism, integrity and the ingenious way that you incorporated our conference messages while performing on our exhibition stand was pure magic! The feedback that I have received from staff, the conference organisers and the delegates attending the conference has been tremendous. With thanks to you I have no doubt that the 2007 conference will go down in the Associations history as being connected with Supra – the GE KeySafe people, exactly what we wanted. Again many thanks, your talent has left those of us that witnessed it in owe and disbelief!
David Ogden - Managing Director - Supra UK Ltd

Thanks for all your hard work at the Novartis Exhibition for EULAR in Lisbon. I still can't believe you didn't stop for breath for days on end in the 40 degree Portuguese summer heat! You certainly wowed the delegates, stopped them from over heating and kept them focused on Novartis - an incredible feat in the circumstances! Not only did you attract so many extra delegates onto our stand it was especially rewarding to see how many delegates came back time and time again. I look forward to working with you in Zurich in November with our top level experts. It goes without saying that we would also like to book you and introduce the magical giveaways for the Exhibition we have next June in EULAR Berlin
Dr Colin Sims - Head of Global Brand Communications - Prexige - Novartis Pharma AG

My sincere thanks for the effort you put in to making our stand at the FPS exhibition such a success. Due to your crowd magnet skills in the first few hours of the first day we captured more qualified leads than we had managed in the previous two exhibitions combined. We were very proud to be recognized as the busiest stand at the exhibition and also received more attention from 'the press' than ever before. You have a great gift; a unique set of talents that work well together. The ability to understand our business well enough to identify and deliver our unique selling points was impressive. We have even had prospects repeating them back to us months later. In addition, your magical skills in attracting the attention of prospects that would, I am sure, normally have passed on by were very impressive. It was also fun for all the staff because everyone who stopped was having such a good time. It certainly made the exhibition fly by. You also backed all this up with sheer hard work, barely leaving the stand throughout the exhibition. I would be happy to recommend your services to anyone and certainly want to book you again for our next Exhibition. And the magic giveaways were terrific
Mr. Tyfion Davies - Managing Director BSS

It was a real pleasure to work with you again at last week’s Infosecurity shows. Your contribution and unbounded enthusiasm were much appreciated - a consummate professional as always! Not only did your presence increase significantly the number of prospective customers we attracted to our stand, but you also helped keep up the GFI team’s spirits as the days wore on and feel got tired! Without doubt, having you on our stand paid off handsomely in more ways than one! Feel free to forward this letter to any prospective employers or, if you prefer, put them in touch with me at any time and I will be more than pleased to provide a glowing reference. I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
Scott Wakefield Business Development Manager, GFI INFORMATICS

Just a short note to say thanks you very much for your efforts last Thursday. As usual, everyone was thoroughly impressed and your contribution made the day a particularly memorable one.

Further quotes from trade show and exhibition clients.

Once again, can I thank you for the help you gave us during IFSEC. There is no doubt in my mind that your presence at our stand significantly contributed to our success at the show and you have become something of a celebrity amongst the Dedicated Micros crew who saw you in action. Everyone is now talking about you within DM! I do hope you enjoyed it.
Bob Sprott, REMGUARD

I would like to place on record our sincere thanks to you for adding sparkle and extra interest during the World Travel Market last week, thereby attracting many more passing visitors to the Friendly Hotels stand. It was of course also great fun for our special clients to have you giving them exclusive demonstrations of your skills. Even though I therefore saw your magic so many times at such close range I am still totally in the dark as to how you can so bemuse people time after time.
I would also like to express my admiration for your professionalism. The quality of all your performances, right through to the end of the fourth and last day was just as fresh and enthusiastic as it had been at the very beginning of the exhibition

Colin Pelling, FRIENDLY HOTELS PLC

“I would like to thank you for all your assistance in making the CIPFA Exhibition the success that it was. This was definitely the best year yet for us with well over 700 delegates through the stand. We are normally in the top three stands but this year we feel we were number one. Good luck and if I hear of any trade stands, hospitality events etc. that come up I will have no hesitation in recommending you.
Kate Bacon, P R Officer, SEDWICK JAMES

Following the above Trade fair held at the NEC may I take this opportunity to express our appreciation and thanks for the professional manner in which you carried out the Meltonian Magic. You certainly increased the amount of visitors on our stand and all were impressed and enjoyed the entertainment that you provided. I personally would like to thank you for all the hard work which I know went into the preparation
A I Rossington, Trade Marketing Manager, Shoe Care Division, RECKITT & COLEMAN

You certainly proved your worth at the Incentives and Promotions exhibitions, in all probability increasing the number of visitors to the stand by five times that expected, the visitors were amazed at the performance you gave. We would certainly recommend you as an investment for any exhibition or conference as a focus of attention and to introduce products or services
Alan R Townsend, Sales Manager, NMC - KENMORE

Just a short note to say thank you very much for your magnificent performance during The Blackpool Health Show. Your true worth was easily demonstrated by the fact that our stand was always busy, even at the time when other exhibitors were standing around twiddling their thumbs and looking for inspiration. PANDA UK LTD has a tradition of providing unique attractions at Health Food exhibitions and your consummate skill served only to enhance our reputation even further. I was already aware that your artistry as a close-up magician was second to none, but your wonderful amusing and delightful company over the weekend came as a bonus
Neil Traylen, Managing Director, PANDA (UK) LTD

May I thank you for your hard work at the exhibition in Glasgow. We believe it was probably the most successful year so far and your presence made a major contribution to our ability to attract people onto the stand and make them feel welcome. We look forward to working with you again in the near future
K J Ellis, Marketing Executive, UPS INTERNATIONAL

This letter is to thank you very much for doing such a wonderful job at the Textile Exhibition at G-Mex in Manchester, the fact that you put a lot of time and effort into thinking how you could link your very clever magic to our towelling products just goes to show how really professional you are. Thank you very much for the card trick you sent us it is really great, we will certainly use you again in the near future. All the luck in the world, you deserve it
Peter Bloom, TEX UK LTD

There is no doubt at all that the volume of visitors to our stand was very significantly increased over that of previous years as a result of your presence. In name awareness terms, the event has to be judged a success if measured by the number of Buck Paterson items taken away by delegates during and after each of your performances. It has been a pleasure working with someone with such a professional approach both in the detailed preparation in the months leading up to the exhibition and throughout the event itself, and we would have no hesitation in recommending your services to other companies. I sincerely hope we shall find an opportunity to use your services again in the near future.
Susan White, Marketing Co-ordinator, BUCK PATERSON LTD

Words fail me! But I’ll try… I have to admit that the thought of taking any sort of entertainment to the hardened professionals of London’s TV industry seemed foolhardy. But I need not have worried. To see some of the doubting Thomas’ slowly move forward, get involved in the act and manage to take away a leaflet – and leave their business cards – made the whole thing worthwhile. As this letter is likely to end up in your portfolio, I’d like to direct this next statement at your potential client. Phil’s ability to work alongside ourselves and to fit in with our requirements was greatly appreciated. He does not take over the stand but subtly blends in and adjusts his act according to the number and type of customers in front of him. He quickly appreciated what our company was about and was very helpful in sorting time wasters from potential leads"
Huw Aled Jones, Marketing Director, BARCUD

Please may I take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent contribution to our stand at the CIPFA conference. Your magical talents once again proved to be a great attraction to the delegates, and gave myself and my colleagues an ideal opportunity to develop old and new relationships. On behalf of myself and my colleagues I would wish you continued success in your career, and look forward to working together again in the not too distant future
Sean McManus Corporate Banking Manager, H.S.B.C

Just a short note to thank you for all you did in Cyprus, the NEC, Florida, Telford and many other extremely successful events. The successes of these events were above all our expectations, and without your high level of professionalism this would have been much more difficult to achieve. The very fact that these types of events were done for the first time in our industry meant we needed Entertainers who were able to quickly adapt to all problems and circumstances, to work closely with us and create entertainment linked to our company. This you were able to do and it further illustrated your professionalism and creativeness. The part you played can not be over emphasised you were the catalyst which made it all happen, you brought the team together
Barry Jeffreys, SHIMANO UK Ltd.

Thank you very much for your assistance at the IT exhibition. I think everyone would agree that the Hyder stand attracted the greatest crowds over the two days – thanks to your performance. When we read the feedback questionnaires we asked delegates to fill in, everyone was very enthusiastic about you. “The magician was brilliant”, “loved the magician” were just two comments we received. We’re looking forward to working with you again at Harrogate and at our open day in the summer
Corrine Cassidy, Sales and Marketing Manager, HYDER

Just a short note to say thanks you very much for your efforts last Thursday. As usual, everyone was thoroughly impressed and your contribution made the day a particularly memorable one.
Ian J.R. Baker, Branch Director, SEDGWICK UK LTD

Thank you very much for the superb effort you put into the Europcar/BCR stand at the Fleet show. You made an enormous difference to our stand traffic and everyone was in awe of the inexplicable skill you demonstrated. Everyone concerned considers your involvement a triumph. Thanks for the professional way you approached the task and we hope to be able to do business again
Peter Kimberly, P&M Marketing

Just a short note to thank you very much indeed for contributing to the success of our stand at the National Association of Pension Funds Exhibition and Conference in Torquay. As you know, we like to lead the way on these occasions and as we were the most talked about stand I believe we certainly met that objective. Apart from your sheer professionalism, we would also like to say how enjoyable it was for us all to work with you and we particularly enjoyed the evening out. I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to any other company, but hopefully not our competition.
M J Cast, Group Business Development Manager, UPSI

Thank you for all the hard work and effort you put in to the Angling exhibition at Birmingham NEC. You made quite an impact at the show and I am still receiving a great many favourable comments from the dealers and members of the media alike. The performance you provided was both innovative and refreshing. The perfect combination of sales and entertainment and can only be described in one way, shear “magic”. I look forward to working with you in the near future
Craig Brew, Assistant Marketing Manager, SHIMANO

Just a note to say thanks for the efforts at the recent Networks telecom show. It was great to see a consummate professional at work, and your contribution definitely helped to make the show a success for us. I hope we will have the opportunity to work together again some time. Meanwhile, if you need a reference, you only have to ask!
S Wakefield, Business Development Manager, ECS

Just a quick note to thank you for participating in our recent seminars. Your magic was awesome and was the perfect interlude between the fund manager’s presentations. The feedback from the IFAs was fantastic. Having you there proved to be a great success and provided a welcome light-hearted distraction from the usually too serious world of financial services!
Joe Lawless, Senior Sales Manager Southern Branch, ZIFA

This is briefly to thank you sincerely for all your magical efforts during the Aims Exhibition last week. Since then we have been busy trying to get all the information out of the many perspective clients. I will be perfectly honest in saying that on other occasions during other just as popular exhibitions response we had was nowhere near as good as we had this time. We all concluded and rightly so that this was entirely due to your magical presence. I think the outstanding thing is when I follow up a client with a phone call; fax or letter just refereeing to our stand with Phil Jay the magician was enough to distinguish us form the hundreds who participated in this event. In the past we have used radio air time to advertise our participation in a particular event, needless to say, not only the cost effectiveness but the uniqueness of your performance and presence far out way the return on investment we have in the past to promote our business and products. Finally and again to thank you for all your effort, we don’t mind committing to you we would love to have you on our next show
Victor Hussain, Managing Director, U.I.INTERNATIONAL

Although support of the conference exhibition by delegates appeared to be down on previous years our view has been that we had a far higher throughput on our stand than our competitors. It is evident from the many comments which we received during the conference that people enjoy calling to see us and taking part in the fun and entertainment that you provide. There are people who positively look forward to seeing you on our stand and others who return several times during the conference bringing friends and colleagues with them to prove that they have just witnessed the impossible! I know I speak for my colleague when I say that we enjoy working with you and having you as a member of our team and I, for one, will certainly look forward to working with you again
Andrew S Peel, Assistant Director, SEDGWICK JAMES LTD

Thank you very much for your assistance at the IT exhibition. I think everyone would agree that the Hyder stand attracted the greatest crowds thanks to your performance. We're looking forward to working with you again at Harrogate and at our open day in the summer
