EVENT OPERATION DIRECTOR
Troy is a true expert in managing complex meetings, conventions, exhibitions and/or special events by presenting the ideal event design that guarantees success. He loves helping event planning sort through complex event requirements to get to the best event solution. His motto is: "Anything is possible”. He uses a potent combination of experimentation, expertise and intuition, which makes him the 'go-to' event operator. Not the sort who plans events through just meetings, he believes in being in middle of the action as he strongly believes that the smartest event advice is never general, but rather is tailored to the unique characteristics of an event stakeholder's situation. He feels that there is always a smarter way of operating, a smarter event arrangement, a smarter event solution.
