The news was first reported by Bicycle Retailer.
“I appreciate the many years at Emerald and am thankful I got to work in markets I care about and with really smart, hardworking teammates,” Denny told the publication. “I am leaving with nothing but gratefulness and am excited about what I might do next.”
Denny oversees Emerald Expositions’ combined sports properties—including Outdoor Retailer, Interbike and Health & Fitness Business—but also serves as business development director across the entire company. He joined Emerald in 2010 from Penton Media where he managed a portfolio of tradeshows that included Natural Products Expos, Engredea, Nutracon, and IT/Dev Connections.
His exit follows the announcement last November to cancel the 2019 Interbike show and the shift last year of Outdoor Retailer to three shows a year from two.
