IDG World Expo CEO Charlie Greco has resigned from the company, representatives from IDG World Expo confirmed for MacCentral on Wednesday. Greco, who led the company for the past five years, has left to pursue “another opportunity within the event management industry.”
Greco’s departure will not affect tradeshows that are scheduled to take place over the next few months including Macworld Conference & Expo, the company said.
Greco is perhaps best known for bringing Macworld Expo back to Boston after several years in New York. IDG World Expo announced last fall that the show would move from its current home in New York to a new convention center in Boston in 2004.
Apple told MacCentral at the time that they would not attend a show if it was moved to Boston and put their participation for the upcoming New York show in doubt. Greco said the show would go on as planned.
Negotiations to bring Apple to New York and Boston are ongoing, officials from the company said today.
IDG World Expo and MacCentral are both owned by IDG.
