– the event industry’s number one portal – is published by CAT Publications, specialists in the international events industry since 1987. The recipe is a large portion of experience, a dash of energy, a slice of youthful enthusiasm and a sprinkling of motivation. The result is a deep understanding of the meetings and event industry and a team spirit with the drive to make things happen. Experience is in every strand of the CAT structure because the company ethos is to keep and nurture its key people to build a knowledge-based team.
It begins at the top where our three directors share more than 100 years experience of the international events industry! Richard Corser, Martin Lewis and Steve Lewis make up a trio with an unrivalled track record in meetings industry publishing. Martin directs our editorial teams and marketing activities while Steve heads up the commercial operation. Richard manages our production department and is ably assisted by Production Manager Amanda Ludman who joined us 28 years ago!Above:

But long service is a feature of the structure throughout the organisation. Marketing Communications Director Maria Voller joined CAT Publications 15 years ago and has managed the communications and events team including the hugely successful M&IT Industry Awards programme that has raised more than £900,000 for charity. She is ably supported by Liz Coleridge who has spent 19 years with CAT. Maria is also the manager of our web-based product offering and is responsible for its constant development as we add new features and fresh functionality.
