Vivid MD leads the accolades to NEC's Bird

Tributes have been flooding in following the death of Andy Bird, former show director at the Birmingham NEC's in-house organising arm Centre Exhibitions.

Bird died in May after losing his battle against liver cancer. Among many messages of condolence was a letter from Vivid Interface managing director Geoffrey Dixon. He said: "When I first walked into his office he was pointing out to an exhibitor that his truck would not be leaving the venue until £25,000 was in the NEC's account. He was firm and businesslike and as soon as the phone went down, he switched to become a great and entertaining guy."
