28-Jan-10by Annie Byrne
Jarvis Exhibitions’ Bruce Birchall is to leave the company after 10 years. Birchall, built and grew the Careers, Skills and Jobs Live brand over the past decade to become the largest annual careers and training event in the UK. The event, at Excel London, now attracts over 150,000 visitors and 900 exhibitors and has also grown into Scotland where its sister events take place. “After 10 enjoyable years I have decided to leave Jarvis Exhibitions. I am intensely proud of the achievements I have made with the Careers, Skills and Jobs Live brand over the past decade,” says Birchall. “I will not be fading away completely – I am forming a consultancy specifically for the exhibitions and events sector, to which I bring over 35 years of experience in the industry. I have special expertise in organisation, stand and event management, logistics, marketing, procurement, planning and all things inventive,” he says.
