CV industry professional David Crawford has joined Binswood Media, the organisers of ITT Hub 2020, in a consultancy capacity.
Well-known and respected CV professional David Crawford has joined the organisers of ITT Hub 2020 in a consultancy capacity effective 7th May.
An exciting new exhibition aimed at better serving the rapidly changing wider transport, related technology and mobility sectors, ITT Hub 2020 will take place at Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference centre for the first time in May 2020.
David Crawford is a very recognisable ‘industry face’ having spent a quarter-of-a-century working in the commercial vehicle sector. His career has included a role as Advertising Director for major weekly trade titles, as well as successfully running his own consultancy business specialising in exhibitions and live events.
Most latterly, he is well known and regarded in his role as Sales & Marketing Manager of the Commercial Vehicle Show where, until April 2019, he was responsible for exhibition space sales and event marketing.
Having contributed significantly to the development of the CV Show over the last 18 years, David decided that the time had come for a fresh challenge. He says: “I’ve kept a watching brief on ITT Hub since its launch and when Mark Griffin shared his vision with me to create a new and exciting business event and invited me to join the team, I couldn’t resist.”
As Commercial Vehicle Consultant for Binswood Media, David will work alongside Commercial Director Peter Thompson managing a number of key supplier relationships with many of his established industry contacts in the truck and van sector, where his strong reputation for loyal and efficient customer service is well known.
David added: “ITT Hub is what’s been missing in the sector – a modern, dynamic event to truly address the future facing all modes of road transport. Anyone visiting the new Farnborough venue will, I am sure like me, be mightily impressed. It is state-of-the-art and provides the perfect exhibition and conference facility to best present innovation and emerging technology with the added opportunity for live vehicle demonstrations.
“I’m really excited at being able to use my experience to build on the impressive progress made by the Binswood Media team to date.”
Commenting on the announcement, Binswood Media CEO Mark Griffin said; “The events industry is a close-knit community and I have therefore known David for many years, respecting his work and achievements in the CV sector. I therefore jumped at the opportunity to get such a “seasoned pro” on the team, where I know he will add huge value.”
