Hello, I’m Ricky Purnell and I live in Shoreham-by-Sea in the UK, near the beautiful South Downs. I love photography and have held a few exhibitions of my work ( you can view some: https://www.flickr.com/photos/rickypurnell/).

I have two boys, Leo and Alex, which is how I came up with the name Lexa. I’ve been working in B2B media, information and events for about 30 years. Most recently I’ve been working on events in the emerging technologies sectors, attending various international trade shows and conferences, talking to exhibitors, delegates and speakers around the world. One thing I came across time and time again was exhibitors with bad experiences of exhibiting at new events, or at established ones that were not moving with the times. They had bought the story, having first reviewed an increasingly overwhelming choice of events, invested five figure sums exhibiting, then came away with few quality leads to work with, and little chance of getting any ROI.

I felt that more independent research was needed to help suppliers collect better insights into the strengths and weaknesses of events, to help better determine if those events are the right fit for their objectives, or help find the right ones.

We now have a growing team of Graduate, MA and PhD STEM students from Universities in the UK and in Europe who are ready to attend events and do market research for you. I look forward to introducing them to you here very soon…



Whatever you need events to do for you, your need for independent research into suitable events may arise because:

  • Your team simply cannot attend all the events you would like them to
  • You need a detailed research into the event coverage, strengths and weaknesses or your competitors activity
  • You want any research to be conducted confidentially
  • You need to understand which are the right events for your next product launch
  • You need to gather more comprehensive competitive intelligence

Planning your Europe 2019 event schedule and need some independent analysis? –  We’re either already attending or can attend these events for you! View some of the events we are planning to attend Here .
