Aaron Levant, the founder of Agenda Trade Show, will leave parent company Reed Exhibitions to pursue a new entrepreneurial venture, industry magazine Shop Eat Surf (SES) has reported.

Levant told the online magazine that his leaving was more of a “retirement” from trade shows. The upcoming Agenda shows in Long Beach and Las Vegas will be his last ones.

He will depart Reed at the end of February but will continue to serve as an advisor to the company.

Levant told SES that he is moving into another industry but is not yet ready to share details about his next venture.

Levant started Agenda 15 years ago as a small streetwear showcase. Agenda eventually grew to what it is today when Reed Exhibitions acquired Agenda five years ago.
