After a period in financial conference sales straight after university, Shane joined the international sales team at Reed Exhibitions, where he worked across multiple events and industries.
In 2006, he got his first taste of the meetings industry when he moved to Reed Travel Exhibitions as Sales Manager for Europe and the Middle East.
With this strong commercial grounding and knowledge of both international and domestic markets, Shane then progressed through various key roles, including Sales Director at Reed Exhibitions, a role which included the creation and roll out of the Global Key Account Management Programme at Reed Travel Exhibitions.
