tfconnect is a strategic partner for organisers, venues and suppliers – globally!

At its core, tfconnect is both an event organiser and a unique, specialist, global network of talent, connecting senior players in the industry with top-level roles and matching events professionals to the right businesses – from mid-level Sales and Marketing talent, to Event Directors, to CEOs.

Working as a partner (not a recruiter) and with a quality over quantity approach – tfconnect specialises in hard-to-find senior and international talent. We are engaged with over 30 clients, working on roles across 20 different countries.

tfconnect partners with InEvexco, an insurance business serving UK event organisers. Historically, it has organised some of the industry’s highest-profile networking events for global industry CEOs.

Trevor Foley's address book spans the globe

Since 2008, tfconnect has been committed to helping events businesses of all shapes and sizes achieve their goals and rise to the challenges of an ever-changing, global industry.

Trevor has over 25 years’ experience in exhibitions and conferences, as Group Chief Executive of the Association of Event Organisers (AEO), the Association of Exhibition Venues (AEV) and the Association of Exhibition Contractors (AEC) between 2006-08 and with a track record of launching and growing great events. This includes 10 years of developing and running events for event organisers – a tough crowd to please!

Remembering Hayley Makepeace

The wonderful Hayley Makepeace was part of the tfconnect family for just 20 short months but left an incredible impression on all the people she touched during her time with the business.

Hayley very sadly lost her brave and positive battle with bowel and liver cancer just eight days short of her 30th Birthday.
