Interbike Appoints Show Director

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, US – Interbike announced Andy Tompkins has been appointed its show director. He has been with Nielsen Business Media’s Sports Group for more than 10 years in a variety of senior sales and show management positions, most recently as the show director for Action Sports Retailer.

Lance Camisasca will continue to manage Interbike’s bicycle advocacy efforts and provide key input and guidance to Tompkins and Joe Flynn on the strategic development of Interbike shows.

“Andy is a consummate specialty sports trade show professional,” said Flynn, vice president of marketing and business development for Nielsen Business Media’s Retail Group, which includes Interbike. “He has a deep understanding of the sports retail and brand landscape, as well as the needs of exhibitors and specialty retailers as they participate in trade shows.”

“I have known Andy for quite some time now,” Camisasca said. “He consistently impresses me with his hard work, strong business sense and passionate efforts towards the events he oversees. I am confident he will demonstrate the same work ethic directing day-to-day efforts for Interbike and the cycling community, and I look forward to working closely with him and introducing him to the cycling industry.”

Effective immediately, Tompkins’ new title is Group Show Director for the ASR, Cycling and Fitness Groups. In addition to serving as show director for Interbike, Tompkins has been tapped as the new show director for the Health+Fitness Business Expo, a retail fitness industry business-to-business trade event, another event previously managed by Camisasca. Tompkins will also continue to serve as show director for ASR.
