We would like to introduce you to Jarno de Boer, who joined our international sales team on 1 September. Jarno made a positive mark over the last 15 years in the international PCO industry and brings a wealth of experience to the team as a commercial manager. He will be located at RAI Amsterdam, and will focus on the portfolios of both ACS and our partner company Eventresult.
Jarno began his career began at the former Amsterdam Convention Bureau. This is where his fascination for the fast dynamics of the international market for associations was ignited. In subsequent years, he has worked in various commercial roles mainly at International Conference Services and Congrex.
Over the past year Jarno focused on the development of ‘Campus Party’, a major international multi-day technology festival. Jarno is also an Advisor to various initiatives, including the VR Days Europe. This experience helped him develop an interest in AV and IT. He sees it as a driver for change and opportunities within the Association industry, and also as an accelerator for interaction within international conferences and meetings.
The switch to ACS, the largest AV and IT supplier within the international conference market and partner of associations, PCOs and venues throughout Europe, was the logical next step for Jarno. In his new position at ACS, he will focus on the further development of the national and international conference market.
