We needed a specialist event logistics company to help us set up our exhibition stand at higher education exhibitions across the country and Bill Bowden Event Logistics were able to meet our requirements. We had a number of non-standard items of equipment to transport and set up, and Bill Bowden provided an excellent service at a great price.
Bill, Brad and the team’s professionalism ensured that each event went smoothly and was stress-free, so thank you!

Myself, the exhibition set up staff and the warehouse team found you and your team nothing but extremely helpful and accommodating towards us and our needs.
I also really appreciated the fact that when you contacted me about collecting a day early for Manchester, then we needed a bit of leeway both you and Roy accommodated.

I’ve known and worked with Bill Bowden and his team for many years and they never fail to give a friendly and professional service. Whether it is shipping, packing, storage or just getting me estimates for projects that are still in development, they are quick to respond and always do their utmost to meet my needs. I’ve also seen them take on big logistical challenges through our mutual work with Upper Street Events, and everything is always taken care of. I have no hesitation in recommending Bill’s services.

We were contracted to provide television coverage facilities for the Rio Olympics and Paralympics. This required 8 x 40ft sea containers and over 10 tonnes air freight of equipment to and from Brazil. The particular requirements of temporary import to the country, multiple locations and separate events added to our challenges. We used Bill Bowden Event Logistics to manage this complete process including on-site support in Rio de Janeiro and they worked well with us throughout the very complex and prestigious project, helping make it a success for all those involved.

FAB GROUP OF GUYS, BEST SERVICE EVER. Bill and the team are extremely efficient and helpful, service with a smile at all time.
Having worked with Bill and his team for many years, I had no hesitation in asking them to assist us with our worldwide shipments project.
I had 100% confidence that they would deliver both on time and to budget, and I was not disappointed. Their dedicated team worked diligently and enthusiastically to ensure each shipment was where it should, when it should be. They kept us informed at all times, and made the whole process simple and easy for us.
As always, it was an absolute pleasure working with Bill and the team again, and I have no hesitation whatsoever in using them again on our next project.

This is the first time in a few years that we have needed a specialist exhibition logistics company and went back to Bill as he provided a great service last time. His pricing was clear, competitive and flexible for our needs. Bill and his team turned up at the exhibition to discuss our return needs and provided a great service including packing as we were short of time to do it ourselves. Goods have returned, well packed, in good time and the invoice has no hidden surprises. Great service that we would happily recommend and will no doubt be our first port of call should we need specialist logistics again. Thanks Bill and your team.
Bill and his team really went the extra mile to ensure we had a successful show. their service exceeded our expectations and we will definitely use them again. Thanks
We have worked with Bill Bowden and his team over a number of years and have always been impressed with the care and attention to detail they bring to our shipping requirements. We run a large number of events each year, with a reasonably complicated set of requirements, but Bill and his team handle them all with ease and experience.
The superb approach to customer services they bring to our events means that we are very happy for them to liaise directly with our clients and the artists that exhibit with us, ensuring everything is handled on our behalf with the utmost professionalism. We are also constantly kept abreast of any issues or changes in requirements with regular communications in the lead up to and onsite at each of the events.
Bill Bowden and his team operate as an extension of our own onsite team and are a joy to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending them.
We have worked with Bill Bowden for nearly 20 years at exhibitions all over the world. Bill and his team provide a thoroughly professional, yet friendly service offering a door to door service. As a UK Pavilion group organisers, knowing that the exhibitors’ freight is in good hands is one less thing for me to worry about.
Bill may not offer the cheapest price – but in my 21 years of experience in exhibitions, you get what you pay for. My exhibitors who have problems with lost, delayed or damaged freight are ones who went for the cut-price option.
I have no hesitation in recommending Bill Bowden Event Logistics for exhibition freight services.
We always strongly recommend that anyone shipping uses Bill Bowden as they know what they are doing and specialize in it. Debbie is the most helpful person you’d ever wish to work with, she is your main point of contact for anything, and she’s always happy to offer advice. Bill, equally as lovely, as you probably guessed, owns the logistics company. He usually comes along to the London events to make sure it’s all running smoothly for us.
Thanks for the help at the show. The boys were great!
Thank you so much to you and all the team for your great support for the textiles galleries this season. It’s all gone very smoothly.
I’ve worked with Bill and Brad for the last 18 months and have been so impressed with their efficiency and attention to detail. If you want a company that you can 100% rely on to deliver it’s these guys. Such a friendly and dedicated team, would highly recommend them!
Just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you and the team.
It was a very last minute project, and you were unbelievably patient and flexible. The stand received great reviews, and the warehouse confirmed receipt of the stand delivery.
When we do use you again, I will make sure there is some advance notice!
I am writing to thank you for the prompt and careful delivery of various furnishings to multiple addresses the other week.
You turned up at the agreed time and took such care that I was impressed and would have no hesitation in recommending your transporting services to clients, friends and family who comment on the need for a service which goes beyond the call of duty.
Thank you for email and I would need to let you know that I am very impressed, definitely “first class service”. Your team was fantastic on the day, from the pick-up to punctual delivery and set up that was beyond what I expected.
Will certainly use you again.
Thank you for all your efforts on our behalf. Our experience at Festival of Quilts was very exciting and indeed a successful venture. In particular I should thank: *Bill Bowden Logistics for both receiving and dispatching our exhibition, the box arrived safely back in Australia yesterday!* Wendy for organising the Lectures, it all went like clockwork which made it very easy, *Our magnificent set and take down teams, they made the experience pleasurable and everything looked terrific.
We are already planning for our next exhibition in 2017.
“A very reliable service”
I have worked for Bill and his team for a number of years now. They offer a very reliable service, always happy to help and provide excellent advice for our shipping/transport exhibitions in the UK and overseas.
Thanks again to you and your team for great support at this autumn’s Knitting &Stitching Shows. It’s a pleasure to work with you: friendly, responsive service; good advice; real care in the handling of the artworks and equipment; and we know you will always go the extra distance and ensure everything is sorted out to our satisfaction.
We used Bill Bowden Event Logistics to move our exhibition from Braintree, Essex to the various venues this year and back again. Each time we arrived on the stand the work was there waiting for us to set up, the empty packaging was stored during the show and then returned promptly at the end. Everyone was extremely helpful and, as you can see from the photo, the men were still smiling as we left to come home on Sunday evening. Thank you.
I would like to say thank you very much for your efficiency at The Knitting & Stitching Show. It was so nice to get such friendly, professional and personal service from you and your staff.
Bill and his team were brilliant. They were helpful and fun to work with. Most importantly they were totally efficient and reliable. I felt that my packages were in safe hands”
I really want to thank you and all your team for all the effort you put in on our behalf to get our work returned to us after the Knit and Stitch Show at Harrogate. No one could have done more, and with such consideration and good humour . We would have no hesitation to recommend your services to anyone.
Thank you again and I hope you have a good restful Christmas.
Our last event was hugely successful for Zero3, and on behalf of the group I would like to thank you all of you at Bill Bowden Event Logistics for helping to make what could have been a stressful time more manageable. We had no issues that weren’t solved in the most expedient way. We hope to work with you again.
I have dealt with Bill and Brad for a number of years now as they store, deliver, set up and breakdown our conference stand at various events across the globe.
The stress of packing, customs clearance etc. is now all dealt with by the experts which frees up my time to get on with the job in hand! Nothing is ever a problem for these guys and there is always someone at the end of the phone no matter what time the day or night.
If you want a friendly, fast, reliable service than Bill Bowden Logistics is certainly the company for you.
