The inaugural meeting of the new board of Eventia was held last week at the Park Plaza Victoria with new chairman Rob Allen taking over for a second term.
Allen, CEO of TRO, has taken over from Mark Saxby, sales and marketing director of Universal WorldEvents. At the meeting he outlined the focus of the board for the next 12 months.
Throughout the year, Allen says that he wants to ensure Eventia continues to deliver relevant added value to all members and stakeholders, address a wider group of businesses, as well as raising the profile of the events industry and maintaining communication with other assocations.
In his first Eventia blog, Allen said: “I want to ensure that we keep in very close touch with our members, sponsors and other stakeholders, asking regular questions and checking that we are indeed doing what they want from the association. I particularly want us to broaden our reach beyond our primary Eventia contact reaching more people at member organisations.”
