Trevor Foley

Founder, tfconnect

Trevor Foley has over 30 years’ experience in exhibitions and conferences. He was leading the B2B division of the Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC) when he launched a standard for verifying exhibition attendances. Success in that arena led to him becoming Group Chief Executive of the Association of Event Organisers (AEO) between 1998 – 2008. During his tenure he launched the Association of Event Venues (AEV), the Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) and the Events Industry Alliance.

Foley is also an organiser with a track record of launching and growing great events.

In 2008, he launched tfconnect as a global recruitment and executive search consultancy built upon his extensive network and long-standing relationships across the global events industry.

tfconnect also serves as an insurance intermediary for the events industry and engages in consultancy work, primarily M&A.

Foley co-founded, with Brand Events CEO Chris Hughes, Events for Namuwongo, a philanthropic network of events-industry companies who support life-changing work with vulnerable children in the slum of Namuwongo, Uganda.
