AMERICAS - The President and CEO of the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau (FWCVB), in Texas, David DuBois, has resigned in order to take up a President post at the Dallas-based International Association of Exhibitions and Events (IAEE).

DuBois will commence the new position on 4 October after current IAEE President Steven Hacker, who has been with the association since 1992, retires.
 
"IAEE is fortunate to have enjoyed a lengthy CEO transition period, which permitted us to engage in a comprehensive national search for our next CEO and ensure a seamless leadership transition,” says IAEE Chair, Doreen Biela. “We are confident that David will provide us with the same kind of creative, enthusiastic, and effective leadership that we have enjoyed for so long."
 
Dubois has previously held high-level in hotel groups Sheraton and Ritz-Carlton, as well as with the Professional Convention Management Association and Meeting Professionals International.
 
As President and CEO of the FWCVB, a position he has held since 2007, Dubois also served as Chairperson of the Dallas/Fort Worth Area Tourism Council’s Board of Directors.

"I have happily spent over 34 years in the hospitality industry and I count my years in Fort Worth as some of the most gratifying," DuBois says.

Chairman of the FWCVB’s Board and GM of the Worthington Renaissance Hotel, Bob Jameson, says: "In his five-and-a-half-year tenure as our president and CEO, David has taken the level of professionalism, results and successful partnership at the FWCVB to new levels.”

IAEE, founded in 1928, is the largest association of the exhibitions and events industry worldwide, with some 20,000 members including organisers, exhibitors and suppliers.
