The appointment comes as the company prepares for the launch of its upgraded Visitor Event Planner.
Simon has a varied and impressive employment history spanning the last eight years, having worked as a technical artist for Pivotal Games and lead technical artist for Codemasters.
Subsequent to these positions he set up his own company, v16 Studios Limited, where his work has included developing systems for Relentless's xBox 360 Kinect project 'Kinect Nat Geo TV'.
In these roles, Simon has been at the forefront, developing new tools, methods and prototypes and shaping the way things are done within the companies he's worked for.
Adam Jones, Managing Director of Showplans, comments: “With his gaming background, Simon brings a fresh approach to the world of 3D visualisations and interactive floorplans that Showplans are already known for, allowing us to continue breaking boundaries in the industry”.
Adds Simon: “There are many innovative and exciting new features on the horizon for the next generation of Showplans Event Planner technology which have yet to be seen in this sector of the industry. I look forward to starting development of the first phase to deliver a new suite of online tools and software for organisers, exhibitors and visitors.”
