Daniel McIntyre was a businessman who became Director of Exhibits for the 1906-1907 New Zealand International Exhibition held in Christchurch.

McIntyre was embroiled in controversy over financial irregularities and hurriedly left the country in 1907. He travelled under a false name and was arrested in Monte Video, Uruguay later that year.
