About us

All of us in the Slidecrew team have been in the firing line of managing presentations for many years. Some of us as AV technicians, some as IT specialists, some of us as graphic designers and some of us as conference producers. It’s not too bold a statement to say that collectively, “we’ve seen it all”. When we got together to form Slidecrew, our goal was to create the best possible system to eliminate the risks inherent in managing presentations for a conference, congress or seminar. Over the years we have grown tremendously and are now supporting events all over the world.

Here is the team that makes it all possible.

Andrew Ely

Andrew joined the Slidecrew APAC team as a project manager, bringing with him 35 years’ experience in corporate events. Having started his working life as a technician, he has since moved into production manager, producer and executive producer roles. Much of his working life was spent in London, where he ran a successful production agency; designing events and producing content for conferences and exhibitions. More recently his work has shifted back to the APAC region in an Executive Producer role on B2B events as well as consumer activations. Andrew is happiest when with his family and four dogs on their hobby farm in central Thailand.
