IMEX chairman Ray Bloom receives EN Pioneer Award

by Nicola Macdonald

Ray Bloom, chairman of IMEX Group, has been awarded the EN Pioneer Award at the 13th edition of the EN awards, held at Battersea Evolution on 22 March. The award was presented by Julian Agostini, managing director of Mash Media.

The exhibition industry is full of inspiring entrepreneurs, individuals who are innovative, risky and brave, who trust their intuition, possess incredible foresight, exude self-belief and most of all, have a will to succeed, all of which defines each and every recipient of the EN Pioneer Award.


EN editor Nicola Macdonald commented: “Ray is a true pioneer of the exhibition industry, growing truly global, trailblazing events while still remaining the approachable, personable and passionate face of the brand. We were thrilled to recognise him for his lifelong contribution to the industry at the 13th EN Awards.”

After the presentation of the award, Bloom said; “This is totally unexpected. It means an enormous amount. When you’ve been working in the industry for 30 years to be recognised by your peers is very gratifying. I feel greatly honoured tonight. I’d like to thank Exhibition News very much, and the IMEX team and all our industry partners, friends and colleagues for their tremendous support over many years.”
