New MD joins leading Cape Town events company Spintelligent

Written by

Leading Cape Town based events company Spintelligent recently welcomed its new Managing Director Philip Vander Gucht. Philip, who has a strong background in B2B conferences and exhibitions, joined the company from the Clarion Events head office in London.

Spintelligent is the organiser of record- and ground-breaking energy industry forums such as African Utility Week, Hydropower Africa, the East African Power Industry Convention (EAPIC) and the West African Power Industry Convention (WAPIC). The company also produces the leading trade publications and portals: Metering International, ESI Africa and Mining Review Africa.

"I look forward to taking an already very successful company to further heights", says Philip Vander Gucht of his new position. "I'm very impressed with the talent that we have. Our team is as international as the events we produce, a real multi-cultural business pressure cooker: from the innovative producers, driven sales and marketing team, the organised logistics department to the various support services. I feel privileged to be working with everyone."

The new Managing Director says Spintelligent's flagship events African Utility Week and African Education Week broke records on all fronts this year. "We're on track for repeat performances, watch this space!"
