The International Association of Conference Centres (IACC) has appointed three new board members and a vice president to its European chapter, creating the youngest and most gender equal board in the association’s history.

Joining the European board as directors are: Clotilde Gay, director of sales at Dolce Chantilly, France; Sylvia Nylin, MD and CEO of Svenska Möten, Sweden; and Manpreet Sehmbi, sales manager at etc Venues, UK.

Led by European chapter president Lotta Boman, the board’s average age is now 43, with the youngest member aged 28; making it the youngest board in the association’s 35 year history.

Boman said: “The European chapter board generates a huge amount of energy and champions great initiatives, and seeing this year’s election results, I am confident that we will continue to be a vehicle for ideas generation in the IACC community. I’m looking forward to working with the newly appointed board members, and those already with us.”

In addition to the newly elected European chapter directors, Pieter Allaerts joins the board as vice president. Presently director of sales & marketing at Dolce La Hulpe Brussels, Allaerts previously held the position as president of MPI Belgium from 2014 to 2016.
