Ross Carter appointed exhibition director for LIWF
Former event manager for the London International Wine Fair, Ross Carter, has returned as exhibition director, replacing James Murray who left Brintex last week.
The new appointment marks a return to Brintex for Carter, who managed the LIWF between 2007 and 2009.
He has since travelled the wine world, with a number of vintages under his belt, including stints in New Zealand at Pegasus Bay and Mudbrick Vineyards. On returning to the UK, he became a buyer at UK agent PLB, where he was responsible for Italy, Australasia, the US and South Africa.
Carter said: “This is both an exciting and challenging time to return to my exhibition roots, and with coalface experience in the wine industry I am looking forward to developing the show on both a UK and international level.”
James Murray left the position after 10 years in the role. He confirmed to Harpers in December he wanted to explore new opportunities ahead of a potentially challenging year for the exhibition.
