Expocast is globally recognised as a leader in recruitment excellence for the exhibition and events industry.
Since 2020, we’ve identified and nurtured the right talent into award-winning event businesses, and have contributed to progressing industry conversations from pandemic survival and recovery, to DEI, and HR best practices.
We have have established strategic partnerships with the Association of Event Organisers, Benchmark Collective, and The Ops Nest, and have delivered experiences and content for industry institutions including our Speed Matchmaking for UFI European Conference and Global Congress, Talent workshops for AEO Conference, in-person and virtual presentations and panels for UFI, International Confex, ESSA, IFES, #EventProfs With Talent, Career Roadmap Webinar Series and The Big Fat Recruitment Debate and more.
We’ve worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes from start-ups to the AMR Top 20, from exhibition organisers to SaaS event technology suppliers, and across five continents.
We are active members of industry trade bodies, continuing to champion causes and initiatives that resonate with us. Through our ESSA membership and official partnership with AEO, we sit on working groups for HR, DEI and Future Focus and Development Boards. We are members of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation, to elevate recruitment best practices in the event industry.
To elevate the global events industry to its full potential. We believe events can shape the world in which we live, through the direct experiences they deliver, and the influence they have over every single sector on the planet.
Through our services, we provide event companies and professionals the strategies, resources and direction to build and retain world-leading teams, so that they can be essential, innovative, and pioneers within their respective sectors.
Our unique strategies are weaved into our direct recruitment services, ensuring that they have a positive impact on the hiring outcomes, and we teach these strategies through content and workshops to maximise the benefits beyond our own capacity. We partner with other industry change-makers and associations to incorporate every aspect of progressive societal topics into our delivery, creating a safer, more joyful industry for the people who love it.
We want to see events driving change and facilitating the conversations that will solve the biggest challenges facing the world.
We believe events are the only sector that has the capability to influence and initiate global, multi-sector change for the benefit of all society. As events grow their influence, they can be the engine that drive initiatives such as tackling climate change, poverty and inequality.
We advocate for the UN Goals for Sustainable Development, and we work with the events community to ensure they have the right strategy and structure to contribute to solving the biggest problems that we face today.
Be true. Find your why. Move the shakers.
At Expocast, we only work with those who relate to our core values:
Being true to yourself and to others. Finding the reason - your 'why' - for what you do. And moving the shakers - putting the right people in place to make changes that will shape our industry and our world for the better.
These three foundational values are the guiding lights that keep us focused on our mission and bring us closer to realising a pretty ambitious vision.
Hear from our clients and candidates
I worked with Natasha to fill a number of senior roles within my global team. Over the years she provided me with a number of Event Directors, Marketing Directors and Business Development Managers who all ended up having fantastic careers and adding great value to the business. Natasha is able to perfectly understand the culture of a business, the team dynamic, key success factors of the role and the primary skill set required of any candidates. Natasha was a valuable external partner and someone who I would happily work with again.Paul MacDonald

I have had the pleasure of working with Mike on several occasions and found him to be professional and very capable. It is great to find a recruiter who doesn't just see a candidate as a pain, but future client. And where he understands he represents the client when dealing with candidates. Mike takes this to the next level, I would recommend him without hesitation.Chief Executive Officer

Mike is highly proactive, detail conscious and very caring. A bit of a strange thing to say about a recruitment specialist I know, but throughout the process of working with him, he was just there with me on the journey and then for some time after would check in, to make sure all was well. If you are looking for your next challenge in the world of exhibitions and events, then I would recommend that you get in touch with Mike, his enthusiasm is infectious and his connections seem limitless. This is, after all, very much a people business and this gentleman is a great person to have in your corner.Business Development Director

When you find yourself on a pathway looking for a new career direction, finding a great headhunter is part of that journey. Mike is a diamond out there! Mike really has your back and finds you opportunities like no one else. But not only that, Mike keeps checking on you over various periods, to ensure that everything is still going well. Mike is not only a top top recruiter, he is an incredible guy to know and work with! I recommend him to all who are looking at advancing their career or looking at recruiting the gems out there.Event Director
Exhibition Organiser, Australia
I've engaged with Mike on several occasions and always been impressed by his focus and his desire to get to the right outcome, for all parties. He interprets the brief quickly and intuitively and has the ability to package it in a way which encapsulates the opportunity and attracts the right candidates. In a hectic world he manages to gain and retain traction, keeping the wheels moving at pace yet without creating stress for those involved. It's a great talent, just one of many he possesses and deploys to good effect for clients on both sides of the process.Director
