Reed Travel Exhibitions Appoints Michael Lyons as New AIBTM Exhibition Director

Reed Travel Exhibitions has recently announced the appointment of Michael J. Lyons as the new Exhibition Director for AIBTM, the Americas Meetings & Events Exhibition.

Lyons, a well-known and respected figure in the meetings and events community for more than 30 years, will lead AIBTM's efforts to enhance its position as the premier global exhibition for the U.S. meetings, events, incentive and business travel industry.

"We are delighted to welcome Mike to the Reed Travel Exhibitions family," said Craig Moyes, Portfolio Director, Meetings & Events Portfolio. "His diverse experience, background and connections will complement the accomplished team we have in place and we expect great results as we take AIBTM to the next level."

Lyons brings a wealth of experience to his new position. His background includes senior level positions with some of the hospitality industry's best-known names, including Global Events Partners, Carlson Wagonlit Travel, and Rosenbluth Travel (now American Express).

He has served on the boards of the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau (PCVB) and ADME (Association of Destination Management Executives); is actively involved in numerous hospitality industry organizations such as MPI and PCMA; and has been honored by the Philadelphia Chapter of MPI as its Supplier of the Year, among other awards he has earned. He is a former member of the Advisory Board of the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation (GPTMC), and is currently an Adjunct Professor at Temple University in their Event Management Executive Leadership Program.

"I am very pleased to join forces with the talented professionals at Reed Travel Exhibitions," said Lyons. "I have attended many Reed-managed exhibitions through the years and have always admired their business model and leadership position. They are committed to producing the finest shows in the industry and I am delighted to join the effort to expand AIBTM's growth opportunities and reputation."
