Ed Kemp takes the hassle out of finding the right product or service - you ask the question, he'll provide the answer.


Q: We are planning to launch several exciting products in the new year and will be demonstrating them at several trade fairs and exhibitions in January. Who can help us?

A: Get in touch with Expositionists (01707 390 122). It has more than 15 years' experience and caters for all budgets.

One option is a modular exhibition stand, though if you have a more modest budget, try a portable exhibition stand.

Expositionists has worked for clients including PriceWaterhouseCoopers, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Chinese Tourist Office.


Q: We need some documents translated in a hurry, but accuracy is very important. Who should we approach for a quick, yet reliable, service?

A: To ensure nothing is lost in translation, you should call TTC Creative (0208 567 5902). Its network includes professional translators, linguists and subject-specific writers.

TTC Creative can handle any B2B or B2C translations, including documents such as annual reports and corporate literature. Its network allows the company to meet tough client deadlines.


Q: We need some 'exciting' promotions staff for the imminent launch of our latest branch. Who should we call?

A: Try Ashley Stewart Promotions (0207 580 9103).

From models to something a bit different, such as stilt walkers or jugglers, it can offer the right people for the job.

To help with the smooth running of the event, you could also hire members of its office staff division.


Q: We need some high-quality, digital colour images printed before Christmas. Our budget is quite tight, so we are looking for a company that can handle a short digital print run at relatively low prices. Any ideas as to who we could contact?

A: You could try 1st Byte (0207 841 4300). It offers excellent value, especially on short print runs. It can turn around small jobs in 24 hours, so there is no need to panic about having everything ready for Christmas.

Given that you still have plenty of time, you could go for the company's 2nd Byte option. The work will be back in five working days, but will cost less.
