The International Association of Exhibitions and Events® (IAEE) has announced that its current president and CEO, David DuBois (pictured), will leave his position earlier than planned, effective 1 October 2023. Dubois had initially said he intended to retire from the role at the end of the year.
Now DuBois is leaving due to a new opportunity presented that he has accepted, the association said.
“I could not be happier for David and his new role to be announced soon,” said IAEE chairperson of the Board Dennis Smith. “David has worked tirelessly for the past 11 years to keep IAEE relevant in the global exhibitions and events industry and has always held the best interests of our members in mind on a daily basis.”
The IAEE Board of Directors has retained SearchWide Global, a full-service executive search firm that specialises in C-level positions in the event, convention, travel, tourism, hospitality, trade association, venue management, and experiential marketing industries.
