Reed Travel Exhibitions has appointed Craig Moyes as its new group exhibition director for its global meetings and events portfolio. He previously served as exhibition director for World Travel Market (also owned by Reed). In his new role, Moyes will oversee the development and expansion of Reed’s international portfolio, including EIBTM in Barcelona; GIBTM in Abu Dhabi; CIBTM in Beijing; AIBTM in Baltimore (which will debut in 2011); and AIME in Melbourne, Australia. Moyes replaces Paul Kennedy, who left RTE last August. In other Reed news, Mandy Torrens, exhibition director for EIBTM, has been promoted to head of marketing and buyer programs for the meeting and events portfolio. She will be responsible for the marketing of all the events and hosted-buyer programs, and will oversee education and association relationships. Following Torren’s move, Graeme Barnett, exhibition director for CIBTM and GIBTM, will move to the position of exhibition director for EIBTM.
