“Bianca’s resume reflects her leadership at the helm of some of the nation’s most successful shows, while her time with the association demonstrated a sense of resilience during a period that represented one of the most challenging times in our industry,” said Melissa Arnott, Newcom Media vice-president – shows.
“She will be an outstanding addition to the team that develops, organizes and manages Canada’s leading shows.”
Kennedy holds credentials in business development, marketing and communications, public relations, industry advocacy and project management, in for-profit and not-for-profit sectors.
