Trade Show & Event Talent
Meet Our Team
More Than Models

Ashlyn Henson Founder

​​Meet Ashlyn​

Ashlyn worked as a trade show and promotional model for years while pursuing a career in acting and dance. After working with multiple agencies at numerous activations, Ashlyn noticed a large void in the trade show and event industry.

Quality talent existed, but it was not always recognized. Furthermore, many talent agencies withheld payment due to talent for months at a time, creating barriers in trust for both clients and talent alike.

Ashlyn decided it was time for a change and formed More Than Models, an agency that stands for just that, talent that is more than meets the eye.
