DD Exhibitions: Meet the Team

Dave Wilde Exhibition Stand Design and Build Birmingham

Dave Wilde – Director

As well as looking after clients, Dave focuses on making DD Exhibitions a great place to work. After all, happy work faces do not go unnoticed! Dave says his favourite thing about his work is that the “diverse nature of the business keeps the mind fresh. One day you can be stuck at a computer, the next day you can be on a plane to a foreign country and the next you have your high-vis vest and safety boots on building a project.”


Simon Diggins Exhibition Stand Design and Build Birmingham

Simon Diggins – Director

Alongside his Director duties, Simon oversees all of the sales and production in the office. He’s an outdoorsy-type, particularly enjoying working on outdoor events and spending his free time on his bike. Simon also enjoys the travelling that comes with the job, remembering an install on the Gold Coast of Australia very fondly. He told us his favourite thing about working at DD Exhibitions is “the team we have working for us” and we couldn’t agree more.


Melissa Colton Exhibition Stand Design and Build BirminghamMelissa Colton – Project Manager

Melissa works closely with the exhibitor and our production team from the design process to completion. She loves seeing her input in the design process come to life on the trade show floor. Her eye for design translates into other aspects of her life, too; “at the moment all my spare time is spent renovating an old house I bought the end of last year!”



Keith Diggins Exhibition Stand Design and Build BirminghamKeith Diggins – Project Manager

Keith aims to make the exhibition process as painless as possible, even overseeing the build of the final stand. His favourite part of working at DD Exhibition is “working with friends I have known for over 30 years. We are a small close-knit team and it is local to home.” When he’s not in the work van, you’ll find him on a weekend away in his touring caravan.


Faye Harwood Exhibition Stand Design and Build Birmingham

Faye Harwood – Office Manager

Faye uses her amazing organisation skills to make sure the team have the materials they need and the tickets to fly, drive or ride to the next site. We’re not sure how she does it, but it’s always with a smile! Faye loves being part of the team: “I know it sounds cheesy, but we have the best team here at DDEX! Every day is a new day, we may come across some challenges but everyone is always here to help each other out when we need it.”


Adie Gilmore Exhibition Stand Design and Build Birmingham

Adie Gilmore – Workshop Labourer and Driver

Adie is a hardworking and valued team member who’s been part of the DD Exhibitions team for as far back as we can remember! His can-do attitude is instrumental to us meeting our deadlines. Over the years he has travelled all over the world with us, livening up long journeys with his quick wit.


Arran Whitehead Exhibition Stand Design and Build Birmingham

Arran Whitehead – Joiner and Spray Painter

Arran is part of our workshop team, who are responsible for expertly manufacturing stands for our clients. Having been trained to operate the paint spray equipment, the CNC machine is his next challenge. Arran takes a great amount of pride in getting the best quality and finish of his spray painting and loves getting to travel around Europe with his job.


Dave Humphreys Exhibition Stand Design and Build Birmingham

Dave Humphreys – Project Manager Subcontractor

Dave works with us seasonally on some of our largest jobs – we couldn’t do it without him! Whilst he enjoys the diversity of the events and clients here at DD Exhibitions, he’s always pleased to visit his second home in Tenerife once the madness is over.



Derek Duffy Exhibition Stand Design and Build Birmingham Derek Duffy – Workshop Labourer

We count on Derek to look after the workshop and carefully wrap, pack and load the manufactured stand ready for transport to the site. This is no mean feat – but Derek is always pleased to see “when the clients are very happy and we’ve done a really good job.” His family keep him busy when he’s not keeping us in high spirits with his brilliant sense of humour.


Here at DD Exhibitions, we pride ourselves on being a local, family-business with the client at the heart of everything we do. To work with us for your exhibition stand, contact us today.
