The Intermedia Group welcomes new event director

Spice News publisher has appointed seasoned events professional, Renita Collins, to head up its event division.

Publisher and parent company of Spice News, The Intermedia Group has announced the appointment of Renita Collins as its new event director for its event division TIG Events and also joining the senior management team. 

With a broad events career spanning more than 22 years, Collins has worked on more than 1,000 events across a diverse range of clients industries both in Australia and abroad, as well as some big name brands such as Toyota, Coca-Cola, Jim Beam and VMware, to name a few.

She brings a wealth of experience to her new role, most recently having managed events for the Law Society of NSW, where she transformed their events and member engagement by more than 400 percent.

In her new role with The Intermedia Group, Collins will present a range of events, including conferences, exhibitions and awards ceremonies across a range of the Group’s industry titles, including Events Uncovered for Spice and A LIST Guide.

Welcoming Collins to the team, The Intermedia Group owner and managing director Simon Grover said he is looking forward to seeing her take the reins of TIG Events.

“Renita has exemplary credentials and a deep passion for events and we are excited to see her bring her talent and expertise in driving our industry-leading events to the next level,” Grover said.

Joining the team at The Intermedia Group, Collins said she was excited to bring her experience and passion to the role at a crucial time for events.

The moment I walked away from my interview, I knew I had to have this job, and everyone I have met since then has made me feel this is the right move,” Collins said.

“It’s a pivotal time in the event space, and it’s important now more than ever to engage and connect. The event environment has changed a lot over the last two years, so it’s a good time to shake things up, a little disruption is healthy. But it’s also important to build on a solid foundation of what works for the audience.”

Collins said she is especially excited about learning and understanding the market and working collaboratively the across the group.

“I am looking forward to nurturing, enhancing and growing the portfolio of events along with my new team. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into the role and collaborate with key stakeholders, to strategically and creatively bring ideas and a vision to life through transformative events.

“They say if you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life. To that end, it’s been 22 years of paid employment and I’ve rarely worked a day in my life.”
