Claude Blanc to manage Portfolio. Shane Hannam to depart IBTM Events

Reed Travel Exhibitions has announced that Shane Hannam is stepping down from his position as Portfolio Director of IBTM Events after almost three years in the role. As a result, the IBTM Events portfolio will now be managed by Claude Blanc.

Claude Blanc commented: “While the past few months have been incredibly challenging and a huge test of our industry, once again we have proved just how adaptable, resilient and creative we are. I’m really looking forward to continuing to support the IBTM global community on the road to recovery and beyond. I’d especially like to personally thank Shane for the exceptional job he has done leading the IBTM team and wish him all the very best with his future plans.”

Claude has spent over 25 years in the travel industry, with extensive experience in both the leisure and business events sectors. His new role will ensure that the current IBTM strategy will continue with its customer focussed approach for exhibitors, hosted buyers and partners, and he will manage the new portfolio as part of his current role as Portfolio Director for World Travel Market.

Commenting on his move, Shane Hannam said: “While I’m sad to be leaving Reed Exhibitions, it’s been a great experience, both professionally and personally, and I’m incredibly proud of what the IBTM team has achieved. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some incredibly talented and knowledgeable people in an industry I have a real passion for. I’m excited about the new opportunities ahead of me and wish the team, our customers and partners the very best on their path to recovery post pandemic.”
