Late that year, we were delighted to host a CCSE Open Lecture in which IMG Senior VP of Tennis and Tournament Director, Lui Carvalho, spoke to students and staff about key elements of event management with regard to his role as director of several large tennis events.

In addition to his director’s role at Cinch Queens Club Championship, Lui is the tournament director for the ATP500 Rio Open, the ATP 250 in Chengdu and the WTA 250 in Shenzhen. Born in Sao Paolo, Lui briefly played professional tennis before spending four years working at the ATP in marketing and media relations. After that, he led the planning and preparation for the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games for almost three years.
