Jacqui Nel started her career in 1981 in the logistics division of Safmarine & worked her way through into the Exhibitions Industry by working for RE Rogers in 1993. In 2002 she started Exhibition Freighting GSM South Africa, together with EF-Gsm UK.
Due to her love for the Exhibitions Industry, she got involved with EXSA & became chair in 2005, aiming to grow the number of members in the Western Cape. She believes that being a member of an Association is vital to keep up with the changes & challenges that are happening around the world, not to mention that it brings credibility to your businesses within our Industry.
When she joined IELA in 2017, she joined the IRWG & quickly became involved. Jacqui believes that the logistics knowledge we all have is key to the success of the Exhibitor at an Event. She also recently assisted with the IELA Sustainability Guidelines. In her own business she supports various NGO’s, including a very poor school, buying and delivering collateral left over after an event so that they can get the money raised from the recycling. These actions are thereby embracing the Goals of Sustainability. Jacqui looks forward to the exciting time ahead for the IRWG
