73 Media founder, Ed Tranter, has held a series of senior management roles across Miller Freeman, Centaur and Informa before joining Findlay Media in 2008.
As a founding director of Findlay Media, Ed worked across the portfolio of print and online products, launching its award-winning exhibition business from its stable of publications in 2012.
After the acquisition of Findlay by Mark Allen Group in 2013, Ed became a member of the group board and executive director of MA Business. The group was a strong B2B publisher, but with little or no exhibitions business, Ed was tasked with the launch of MA Exhibitions. In less than four years, and built largely on launches and organic growth, MA Exhibitions became a multi award winning organiser, delivering 36% of the group's turnover, with events on five continents.
Ed frequently consults for event organisers, publishers and associations. He is a conference speaker, regular industry awards judge and a member of the AEO board.
"As the managing director of 73 Media I am passionate about the experience for visitors and exhibitors alike. About adding value in every market in which we work and making sure all partner organisations feel the benefit of any collaboration.
73 has been launched with partnership and giving back at its heart. That is why a proportion of the profits from every event are put back into a grass roots aid project within the city where the event takes place.
I am looking forward to where the journey takes us!"
