Exhibition Magician


Make your next Exhibition and trade show a success by hiring a magician like Richard

Packed with big brands and even bigger budgets, trade shows and exhibitions aren't known for being entertaining. With all that competition for visitor attention, how do you ensure your stand...well - stands out?!

However good your product is, you can't have a successful trade show with a low footfall and an empty stand. Wouldn't it be good to have an extra pair of hands on your stand to qualify quality leads and save you time?

Hiring me as a professional trade show magician is a sound investment for your business. With some jaw-dropping magic, polished presentation skills and dynamic energy, I'll help you communicate your message and promote your products to your target audience.


Running an exhbition stand is a big investment, and it's vital to generate interest from trade show visitors in the short amount of time you have.

As a professional performer, I thrive on presenting to audiences of all sizes. I'll draw a crowd to your stand - creating a buzz people want to be part of - before starting a dialogue with visitors, creating interest in your services and products, and introducing potential clients to your sales team.

You can even custom-brand props such as playing cards, stickers and envelopes with your logo. Get in touch to find out more.

Trade show magician core values and goals to make your exhibition a success


Pickpocketing and putpocketing are a real attention grabber (no pun intended) for your event or exhibition stand - and, as one of a handful of skilled pickpocket entertainers in the UK I'm the perfect pickpocket magician to hire.

Pickpocketing makes ideal entertainment for companies in the protection and security industries, from cyber security, date protection and CCTV providers to the police, government agencies and protection businesses.

Done with humour and skill, pickpocketing is captivating entertainment for your trade show stand. The reverse - known as putpocketing - consists of carefully placing a branded company message into the pocket of your unsuspecting visitor while the crowd watch open-mouthed!

Based in Gloucestershire in the South West of England, I can travel around the UK or internationallly to provide exhibition magic or skilled pickpocketing for your trade show or event. I've worked for big brands at world-renowned exhbition centres including Olympia and the 02 in London, the NEC and Utilita Arena in Birmingham, The Centaur Cheltenham and Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre.

Exhibition Magician Richard "Richard was a Pickpocket entertainer during the networking reception at the Gartner Data Analytics Summit in London, an event we sponsored, and he truly performed exceptionally well. We probably did not need to arrange any other entertainment that day as he was fantastic. Richard kept the attendees entertained and attracting them to our booth, and he was very skillful in linking our company's message to his performance. He is one of the nicest people I had the pleasure to work with, very well prepared, proactive and engaged, I give him my strongest recommendation."

Exhibition Magician Richard"We had the pleasure of working with Richard at Infosecurity Europe - Europe's leading cyber security event which was held at London Olympia over three days. We asked him to help attract customers to our stand with his great brand of close up magic. In doing so, we realised immediately we were getting far more than a magician. Richard took an instant interest in our product and our targets for the show. He kept an eye on the stand and filtered customers for us. He kept customers entertained for as long as one of us became available, then introduced them to us. Our customer flow through our display stand was increased so much more than expected by having Richard's help! If you're planning an event and want to book a magician don't even hesitate - Richard is simply fantastic. I highly recommend him!"

Exhibition Magician Richard"We recently had the pleasure of working with Richard at The Finance Professional show which was held at Olympia London. We asked him to help attract people to our stand and when we first approached him about using his magic to increase our audience we didn't have a clear idea of how he would actually do it. Richard knew exactly how he would draw crowds. He very successfully used his easy charm and amazing close up magic to stop people who would have passed us by and then after treating them to a trick or two he led them to our stand. We manged to gain vital leads from people who otherwise would have walked past us. Richard was fantastic to work with he was a complete professional, proactive and fully engaged with both us and our target audience. I couldn't recommend working with Richard enough. We will definitely be asking him to work with us at future trade shows as his style of entertainment is perfect for instigating a buzz and generating interest. A large part of our success at the show was down to Richard's unique work."
