Event director, Quartz Sequoia Events

Nomination: “Max had a thought leadership event idea for the physical activity industry while working as a sales manager for an exhibition company. At the age of 24 he took a leap of faith to follow this idea through to completion. Using the deposit he had saved to buy a flat, he launched Elevate in 2016. The 2017 show doubled in size, had over 4,000 attendees and was awarded the best trade show under 2000sqm at this year’s AEO awards.”

In five years’ time: I will be 32 or dead. If I am not dead then I’d like to be working with talented people creating interesting events that matter.
