Exhibitions and Trade Fairs appoints Gary Daly new managing director


Gary Daly will join Exhibitions and Trade Fairs (ETF) in the role of managing director, taking over from Jodie Richmond effective December 2012.

Daly joins the ETF team with an extensive background in business and the meetings and events industry that has been further strengthened by his most recent role as general manager of sales for Luna Park, Sydney.


Gary Daly will take on the role of managing director at Exhibition Trade Fairs, effective in December.

His experience coupled with his strong network of industry relationships will help lead the ETF business into the next phase of operation focused on continuous improvement.

“I am thrilled to be joining ETF at such an exciting time. I look forward to working with such a dynamic team as we launch into another year of successful events,” Daly said.

Jodie Richmond has been at the helm for the past two years. During her time as managing director Richmond increased the breadth of the portfolio of shows owned and managed by ETF, introducing brand new events whilst strengthening those shows already in operation.

Daly will work alongside Richmond in the lead up to Christmas.

ETF owns and manages such shows as Australian Business Events Expo and Sydney’s Event Showcase, and is owned by Staging Connections Group Limited.
