Marcus Timson joined the FESPA team in September 2006 in the newly-created role of Group Commercial Manager – a position that sees him communicating and marketing the FESPA event portfolio, as well as developing new commercial activities for the organization.
In July 2007, Marcus became Corporate Communications Director for FESPA, and was given the responsibility of launching FESPA World Expo Asia-Pacific 2008, Bangkok, Thailand as Event Director. He was promoted to Sales and Marketing Director in July 2008.
Marcus is also tasked with exploring ways of enhancing support for FESPA associations in order to help their member companies.
As a seasoned exhibition industry professional, Marcus’ most recent position, prior to joining FESPA, was as event director of the Exhibiting Show – a UK event that celebrates the power of exhibitions. Consequently, he is passionate about the effectiveness of exhibitions and events as the best way for suppliers to engage with their industry, promote their organisation, gain access to new ideas, meet new contacts and do business.
In his spare time Marcus enjoys running, reading and spending time with his wife, Pippa and daughters, Daisy and Kiki.
