Wayne Forster

Wayne Forster – Founder & Managing Director of EBISS UK Ltd, CEO of EBISS USA Inc.

Wayne started out in IT, working for an exhibition freight agent in Birmingham.  He swiftly moved into their operations department and headed the NEC operations.  He handled some of the largest events at the NEC to include management of forklifts, cranes, labour and scheduling vast quantities of trucks and movements globally.

He didn’t want to stay in this role as it was not sufficiently challenging and moved onto to a large event freight forwarder in the South East.

After 2 years, he moved to Chicago to work for a US trade show Customs broker.  His role there was to develop the international side of the business and successfully took the company from zero sales in international events to a leading force in under 2 years.

After his return to the UK, Wayne has been actively involved in event logistics and added both service and technology which has enhanced our position within the industry

Previous projects that Wayne has been involved with includes Diana, Princess of Wales Exhibition as well as the Tutankhamun exhibition at the O2 London and also in Vienna.  This included a Boeing 747 charter flight, trucks in rotation from Stansted Airport to the O2, 18 ocean containers and many airfreight shipments that needed to be co-ordinated  and handled safely and on-time.
