Ravinder Sethi has been elected as Chairman of the Committee of IELA, the International Exhibition Logistics Association.
Sethi is currently Vice President of the Indian Exhibition Industry Association (IEIA), as well as Managing Director of RE Rogers India. He was elected at a general assembly in Venice this week.
The IELA provides a forum for people and companies who are engaged in the international transportation of exhibition material. The committee provides checks and balances to the governing bodies in the association.
Sethi commented: “The founding fathers of IELA were very wise in creating checks & balances in the governing bodies. It is in their wisdom that The Committee (earlier known as the Legal Board) was created. The existing governing bodies and functional working groups of IELA are brilliant.
“The Committee has an extremely responsible role in ensuring that everything remains like this. I have had a great journey in IELA. From a simple member to committee member, to chairing committees, to be on the Board, become Chairman (15 years back), and then come back on the Board four years back has been a memorable experience.
“To be elected Chairman of The Committee is now the ultimate honour. I am truly humbled by the faith and confidence that IELA has bestowed on me.”
