Liverpool’s convention bureau manager, Carol O’Reilly, is set to leave this month after five years with the organisation.
O’Reilly, who has been with the destination since 2007 and helped set up the bureau, is semi-retiring and plans to make use of her villa in Spain. She will be replaced by Kate Currie, who has been at the bureau for more than four years and will take the role of interim convention bureau manager.
Currie, who is currently conference manager, said: “Carol has been a real force for positive change within the bureau and Liverpool as a whole. I look forward to carrying forward her influence and ensuring that Liverpool remains the leading conference destination in the UK, with outstanding service, facilities and experiences for all delegates. The next few months will be an exciting time for the city with many new developments and investments set to take place.”
O’Reilly added: “Having been with Liverpool Convention Bureau for a number of years I have been privileged to see the city develop into a leading destination, win many accolades and add many hotels and venues to its portfolio. I feel the time is right for me to move on and know that Kate will continue to be a valuable asset to the bureau and the city.”
