Kerry has more than 20 years’ experience in the corporate event industry, having worked on conferences, summits and tradeshows around the globe, and joins from within the Reed Exhibitions B2B portfolio, where most recently she held the role of portfolio director for InfoSecurity Group.


She will replace Sallie Coventry, one of C&IT’s first A Listers and former managing director of W&O.
Nick Pilbeam, divisional director, Reed Travel Exhibitions, said: "We are delighted to have Kerry join the ibtm events team. Kerry brings with her a thorough understanding of the Reed events business along with exceptional experience in global events organisation, both in the form of one-to-one events and major trade shows. This, combined with her commitment for delivering a first-class customer experience, makes Kerry extremely well qualified to take the reins at ibtm events."


Kerry has previously worked in numerous locations across the globe, beginning out of university as conference producer for AIC Conferences in New Zealand. She then moved to BIIA and then to work for international business events and information company, marcus evans, in Australia, San Francisco and then Chicago, before taking on the role of general manager Barbados for the company. She also held senior roles at Honeycomb Worldwide, a business consulting service, and IQPC Exchange in New York.

Speaking about the role, she said: "I’m thrilled to join the ibtm events team at what is a very exciting time for the business. I’ll be bringing my experience to bear leading the team as we focus on further growing our pan-portfolio clients, and ensuring all of our shows continue to lead the field as ‘must attend’ events on the MICE industry calendar."
