Events recruitment, without the recruitment agency

tfconnect is a talent partner for organisers and venues in exhibitions and conferences.

A talent partner with a global contact base

tfconnect is both an event organiser and a unique, global network of talent, connecting events professionals to the right businesses, specialising in hard-to-find senior and international talent across the events and exhibitions industry.

Working as a partner (not a recruiter) and with a quality over quantity approach, we are engaged with over 30 clients, working on roles across 20 different countries.


Find the right specialist senior talent to lead your new launch or aquisition.

Add world-class talent into Event Management, Event Director and commercial roles across your international portfolio.

Build talented mid-level Sales and Marketing professionals into your teams with pre-qualified candidates.



We operate as a business partner – not a recruitment agency. Responsible recruitment is at the heart of what we do.


…over quantity! We believe that less is more and we’ll only send you pre-qualified candidates after taking references and getting to know them.


We don’t just move ex-pats, our network of both clients and candidates is truly global and spans more than 20 countries over 6 continents.


With over 20 years’ experience in events, we have close working relationships (and friendships) with many senior players in the industry.


Our experience as an event organiser and our proximity to other thought leaders in the industry means that we have an unparalleled understanding of the challenges your business may be facing.


While we’re known for our specialism in senior talent search, we also work with mid-level talent, helping to build sales and marketing teams and help to fulfill all kinds of event management and commercial roles – even finance and HR.


We used tfconnect to headhunt a new business leader in an overseas territory. It was a positive experience – the tfc team were great at unearthing good candidates quickly and efficiently and we successfully filled the position. Give them a try!

The team at tfconnect have delivered at every level, advice, tactics and candidate delivery. They have been a joy to work with.

President Middle East and Asia, dmg :: events 

I was very impressed with quality of candidates that tfconnect sent my way. Having done a significant amount of hiring, my experience is that recruiting firms take some time to “get it right” as far as the type of people I was looking for. If this is the beginning, I look forward to many more collaborations with tfconnect.
