Exhibition Stand Manufacturers Ltd, Unit C5 Liberty House, West Mill, Gravesend, DA11 0DL

© 2017 ESM Ltd



The ESM team is what sets us apart from our competition.  Experienced, passionate and continually learning new technologies and tricks of the trade, as exhibition stand suppliers, they are our greatest asset and will be your biggest support for any stand design, manufacture and build you undertake with us.

Rob Brackstone

Managing Director

Rob is MD at ESM, and at any one time may have an eye on driving the business forward, as well as overseeing and directly managing a number of projects through their various stages of design, build and manufacture, building relationships and working on sales opportunities for the future. With a background in retail management, Rob prides himself on having a strong eye for detail and especially loves to work with product. In the latter stages of a degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, Rob is also particularly interested in the thinking behind the marketing campaigns and values of an organisation and how these can be communicated to others in a trade show environment in order to promote growth.

If you’ve received a Christmas gift from us with a poem enclosed, then chances are Rob wrote it. As well as this passion for creative writing, Rob loves football but recent retirement from the beautiful game has led to a new passion for triathlon. A keen runner having completed the London Marathon twice, his daughter Hollie regularly thrashes him in the swimming pool meaning he has some way to go before mastering his new sport.

Ross Emerick

Sales Director

Ross is Sales Director at ESM and has a key and often unseen part to play in each and every trade fair stand that we build. He liaises closely with organisers and operations teams to negotiate approval for each project together with administrating all of the various health and safety aspects. Negotiating with suppliers of items such as audio visual, furniture, internet, rigging and electrical contractors is a key part of his role to maintain a network of relationships that as trade fair stand suppliers, we rely on in order for us to present the most cost efficient and seamlessly integrated final solution for any exhibitor.


His background in retail and customer service has given him an easy way with clients and his organised and efficient manner makes him a key point of contact for each client which is important in maintaining clear and open channels of communication over the life of a project. On the books of Arsenal as a youngster, Ross still scores bags of goals in Sunday football, and loves Everton almost as much as he does his sausage dog Marmalade.

Paul Eames

Finance Director

Paul is the Finance Director at ESM and juggles the management of all administrative areas of the business with the demands of account and exhibition stand management for various clients. Paul has over 10 years’ experience in project management as well as a degree in engineering having worked at British Aerospace and Delphi. During this time he has gained a unique insight into various manufacturing techniques, as well as the design and implementation of comprehensive systems and processes whilst working to strict deadlines.


Paul has two young children in Charlie and Tom, and delights in making them traipse all over the Kent countryside on walking excursions which we are told ‘they love’! He is also the social co-ordinator for a large group of friends and on a night out is the only person deemed responsible enough after drinking to take possession of ‘the whip’.

Pat Henderson

Project Administrator

Pat is also a Project Admin but more than that she is the ‘rock’ that every office needs to function smoothly and efficiently whilst maintaining team spirit during even the most testing of times. Familiar to our many clients for whom we manage stock including literature, promotional materials and deliveries, Pat also helps to manage many smaller projects by shipping modular systems to destinations throughout the United Kingdom.


Pat remembers every birthday, insists on postcards from every holiday, and sees every e-mail, picking up on all those that might be missed in cases of illness or working away. Pat works Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and in between is often with grandchildren, out walking the countryside, or plotting a campaign against the local council as the pillar of her local community which we are sure she is!

Anne Wilson


Anne runs our accounts department, makes sure we get paid on time, that we are able to pay our suppliers on time, and most importantly ensures that there is money in the bank for us to have a drink at Christmas. Tenacious rather than ferocious, her hardest task is probably to make sure her colleagues provide her with the information she needs from expenses to credit card bills, sales and purchase invoices for her to make everything balance so we can see where we are.


We are sure we drive her mad at times, but to her credit she never lets it show! She has a house in Bath as well as in Rochester, a boat and a private jet. Hang on a sec........and we’ve not made a profit in a decade! Hmmmmm....
