The future is bright, the future is Rocket

The Rocket Group was founded in 1999 with a simple objective; to bring under one roof the creativity of a marketing agency and the production talents of an exhibition manufacture to form Scotland’s leading exhibitions and events firm.

Since then, the company has grown to form a group offering a range of products and services, from studio design to events management and a skills development consultancy.

At the heart of every project is a passion for excellent design, skilled project management and an attention to surprise and delight our clients and their customers.

We are excited to be developing our events business over the next 18 months.

We march towards delivering our own conference Net Zero Scotland, the largest event of its kind in the UK focused solely on bringing together public sector needs with private sector skills to accelerate the drive for a net zero economy. We are developing a programme of activities throughout the UK to lead the charge to limit the effects of climate change.

As we develop our own conferences, we are really excited to work for clients to produce theirs!

We were delighted to be asked to produce the design and build of the event space for the ISTAT aviation industry conference in Edinburgh’s EICC.

With delegates arriving in Scotland from around the world, this event is a showcase for its host city as much as for the industry members in attendance.

Our brief was to fit out the welcome space in the Strathblane and produce ‘Deal Zones’ for delegates to meet and do business. We also created directional signage and the obligatory COVID-safe stations throughout the venue.

Our client ISTAT was a dream to work for. Against the backdrop of tough trading for the aviation history and uncertainty as to the feasibility of the event going ahead, we appreciated the additional anxiety that delivering this event, in a city far from the client’s base in the US, would cause.

Our production team built an excellent and close working relationship based on regular and frank communication to make sure that every issue was tackled, and every opportunity taken.

We did not take this event for granted and we never do. Whether new to us or part of our regular programme, we treat each exhibition build as a fresh start and work hard, using our proprietary project management toolkit Buffalo to ensure we leave no stone unturned to deliver a quality event.

The event was a great success and those attending felt great pleasure to be back meeting in person again. The EICC is also a fabulous venue, and it is a great joy working in the space with the production team.

Allison Kuzniarowicz, CMP, International Society of Transport Aircraft Trading, said: “The team members at Rocket Exhibitions are professional, efficient, and dependable. The quality of their structures and signage is top notch and exceeded expectations. Rocket Exhibitions truly made the planning process for our event stress-free.

“From pre-event through onsite execution, their team worked to manage and produce the event flawlessly. As an event professional with 10 years of experience, I would recommend them to anyone in need of a general service contractor for their conference or tradeshow.”

The future for the Rocket Group is exciting especially in the exhibitions and events space. And we would love to hear from industry colleagues who would like to explore opportunities to innovate with us. Contact Ben MacCorquodale on or call 0141 628 9171.
