Centaur Exhibitions marketing director Nolan O’Connor has resigned from his post, effective from the end of 2012.
 
O’Connor has spent the past four-and-a-half years with the exhibition organiser as marketing director, working across a host of shows including Marketing Week Live and the National Home Improvement Show. He also recently acted as chairman for the Association of Event Organisers’ Marketing Forum at Earls Court Conference Centre on 13 September.
 
Prior to Centaur, O’Connor spent nine years with Haymarket Exhibitions working on its male-oriented show portfolio including Autosport International, Bike Show, Pistonheads and Stuff.
 
O’Connor remains in the role until December and will oversee the final stages of The National Home Improvement Show at Olympia in September, along with final plans for the consumer portfolio of events.
 
“My time as marketing director at Centaur Exhibitions have taught me a huge amount,” he said. “With exhibitions in many industries, we have managed to take learnings from one and apply them successfully to other products within the business, while continually testing new ideas and concepts.
 
“The pulling together of shows under Marketing Week Live has been a great testament to this and I look forward to seeing this show continue to thrive along with the many other great shows that Centaur Exhibitions produce.
 
“I now look forward to taking on new challenges within marketing world and continuing to ensure customers get the right messages and benefits from a product.”
 
Centaur has not yet confirmed a successor to the role.
