James Wilmott has more than 10 years experience in organising conferences in Brussels and globally, and has been Managing Director of Forum Europe since 2005.

Alongside fellow Director Dan Craft, he has overall responsibility for the strategic and operational management of both Forum Europe and Forum Global (the company’s international subsidiary), and co-ordinating both companies’ portfolio of events. James has specific expertise in the internet/online, energy and environment, trade and security sectors and heads up the Forum Europe team in these areas.

James graduated from Lancaster University (Edge Hill) in 2002 with a degree in Communications (Hons) and spent a year undertaking research into European communications policy within the context of public perceptions of Europe and the EU in the UK, while also teaching at undergraduate degree level. He also undertook postgraduate research into notions of fandom, particularly in relation to videogames.

James then joined a leading design and marketing company in the UK before spending a year at a European conference company as Marketing Manager for the European region. In 2005 James co-founded Epsilon Events with Dan Craft, which in turn merged with Forum Europe SA in 2009 to form the leading EU dedicated conference and event provider.
