Dan Craft

Managing Partner, Forum Europe

As Partner and Managing Director, Dan is jointly responsible (alongside James Wilmott) for the overall strategic and operational management of Forum Europe.

His role includes a large focus on content and programme development, as well as on developing and strengthening relations with policymakers and industry stakeholders both within Europe and globally.

After graduating in linguistics from the University of Reading, Dan worked in IT and procurement strategy before moving to the events sector in 2004. He co-founded Epsilon Events in 2005, and then took up his current role following a merger between Epsilon and Forum Europe in 2009.

Dan was influential in the launch of Forum Global (the company’s international arm), and still leads in the majority of the company’s work outside Europe, including the Global Spectrum Series – a portfolio of seven events across five continents which is regarded as the world’s leading meetings series for the spectrum community.

Once he’s ensured the success of these events, there’s not much time for anything else. But when he does get a minute, you’ll probably find him cycling around the country lanes near his home in Cardiff.
