Zoccali is also account director at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre. He has been a part of ILEA for the last few years and thought leader in the events and experiential industry.
Commenting on the appointment, current president, Alistair Turner said: "There are few people who understand both the dynamics of the events community and the business and brand community than Carlo. The Board is excited that he will be taking on the role and drive ILEA’s mission to grow the footprint of the association and lead the industry’s relationships with business and brands."
Zoccali added: "This is a real honour for me and gives me the chance to make a real contribution to an industry that I love. There is a strategy in place at ILEA to remain the only association that understands the language of business and brands, and I’m keen to continue this dialogue."
