PCMA has appointed Neil Brownlee, head of business events at VisitScotland as its first non-North American chair elect for 2024.
Brownlee has been with VisitScotland Business Events for the past 15 years, and possesses around 35 years of experience in the international hospitality and business events industry.
The announcement comes following the successful approval of the 2024 Board of Directors and Trustees Slate, which was presented to PCMA members on September 1, 2023. Directors and Trustees will assume office immediately following PCMA’s Convening Leaders, taking place from January 7-10, 2024, in San Diego, California.
Alongside incoming chair Leonard Hoops, president and CEO at Visit Indy, Brownlee will be well poised to lead PCMA into a new era of global impact. Both Hoops and Brownlee will work closely with PCMA’s Board of Directors and Trustees, as well as with PCMA and CEMA president and CEO Sherrif Karamat, and his team to continue promoting economic and social transformation through business events worldwide.
