Tarsus Group chairman Neville Buch led the list of winners from this year’s Association of Event Organisers (AEO) Awards on 6 July.
 
The former Blenheim executive chairman, who joined Tarsus as part of its launch in 1998, was honoured for his contribution to the exhibition industry and, in particular, his international achievements, win the Outstanding Contribution to the Industry Award.
