NAC Stoneleigh Park commercial director Bill Ross is the new chairman of the Exhibition Venues Association (EVA). He takes over from NEC corporate development director John Cole who has completed his two-year term. Ross had been deputy chairman for the past year. That role has now gone to Scottish Exhibition and Convention Centre chief executive Mike Closier. EVA executive secretary Robin Anderson said: “Ross is enthusiastic about the development of the organisation and has been instrumental in developing the profile of EVA’s communications group.” Ross formerly took up the chairman post at EVA’s AGM on 9 October. He has identified four key areas on which to focus: health and safety, waste management, development of exhibitions, and the promotion of exhibitions to small and medium-sized businesses. He also stressed the importance of working closely with the Association of Exhibition Organisers (AEO) and the British Exhibition Contractors Association (BECA). “I would like to develop EVA’s relationship with the AEO and BECA to effectively further the cause of exhibition promotion and management,” he said.
