Expotherapy enjoyed a successful week at last month’s Farnborough International Airshow were it was an official contractor for the first time.
The firm had a total of 12 crew onsite and offered mobile relaxation services to both visitors and exhibitors.
One of the week’s highlights was offering a massage to the prime minister, Tony Blair, who made a surprise visit to the show on the Thursday. Blair watched the Airbus A380 perform a fly-by from the viewing balcony of the media centre and proceeded back downstairs where he was accosted by Expotherapy MD, Karen Mc Closkey. Seeing it as an opportunity not to be missed, she offered the PM a quick massage.
“Mr Blair was looking at my therapist and her chair as he came downstairs, so I just said ‘Hi Tony, would you like a massage?” she says. “He grabbed my hand firmly, smiled and replied ‘great idea but not right now.”
Expotherapy reports massive interest in its services and is now quoting for events in Paris, Nice and the UK.
