Presenting the award, Graeme Barnett, Reed Travel Exhibitions, Senior Exhibition Director commented, “The timing is right for us to recognize Patrick’s enormous contribution to our industry. His passion, commitment and enthusiasm are endless and I know that his unique style and personality has endeared him to the many people he has met and worked alongside during his travels around the world.”

It’s a huge privilege to work in such a dynamic industry where I’ve learned so much and made so many lifelong friends. But there’s life in the old dog yet and lots more achievements to pursue as the next chapter of a career in this amazing industry unfolds.”
