About us

Your Global Events Talent Partner

tfconnect is the events and exhibitions industry's recognised global recruiter and senior executive search and selection specialist. We are in a unique position of having candid and close relationships with the best & hardest to find senior talent in the industry. This means, key players come to us first to talk about their ideal next role.

We understand the chemistry and culture of your business, the nuances within the industry, the trends, and the global market. And, even if we don’t have the right connection for your business in our immediate network today, we will be able to get to them.

We also know what makes our candidates tick; what they want, what inspires them, where their best cultural fit would be, all of which means you get the best available talent at the right time for your business, without wasting time. We are in the business of connecting the dots in the right way to ensure a strategic ‘fit’ that delivers sustainable success. We operate in partnership to ensure the most talented candidates see you, speak to you and are hired by you.

The bottom line is that our clients and candidates are our friends and an extension of our family, and our dedicated employees work tirelessly to support both, for the benefit of all.

Expert Industry Insight

Our 'Chief Connector', MD Trevor Foley, has over 30 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 Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) between 1998-08 and with a track record of launching and growing great events.

We’re also working with thought leaders in the Indian Exhibition Industry Association (IEIA) to advocate and champion the MICE industry in Asia.

The opening of our Singapore office and plans for USA expansion allow us to truly act as a global talent partner, matching the best and brightest talent with our clients worldwide.
