An organiser at heart, Jacqui thrives with the adrenaline of the highly-pressurised eventing industry. As co-owner of On Show Solutions, she has managed a range of client events and has played an instrumental role in expanding Africa’s tourism trade through the Africa Showcase roadshows. Jacqui has specialised in sales, marketing and communications within the eventing space.
After cutting her teeth in the industry working on the House and Garden Show in Durban and at Gallagher Estate in Johannesburg, Jacqui took a position with Reed Travel Exhibitions in the UK. This involved extensive travel across Europe and the Middle East focusing on core exhibitions such as World Travel Market London, Arabian Travel Market, Mediterranean Travel Fair and CIS Travel Market. On returning to South Africa, Jacqui enjoyed the role of Tourism Exhibition Manager with Kagiso Exhibitions & Events, looking after a number of tourism initiatives and the dynamic South African Tourism account for Indaba.
Jacqui has 19 years experience in exhibition and event management – both locally and internationally. Qualifications include a Masters Degree in Tourism (University of Witwatersrand) and a degree in Public Relations (UNISA).
