The award was announced on Saturday (16 June) as part of the Queen’s birthday honours list.
Vincent said: "To be appointed OBE is an immense and unexpected honour. For more than 35 years I’ve been able to contribute to the exhilarating business of international meetings, exhibitions and events. I have been associated with some of the world’s best and busiest venues and with a great many highly talented people.
"A significant part of my working life has been spent abroad helping to develop the exhibition and conference industry overseas. This has been both a memorable experience and a real privilege. I especially value this present period of my career and leading the extremely dedicated team of conference and event professionals at London’s Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre."
