Emma Barker has joined QHotels Event Profs Panel, as the board looks to expand with a wider range of industry voices for the remainder of 2017.

Barker is an events manager at automotive events agency Tebays and joins 13 other board members, all event organisers with five years' experience or less,  to help shape the future of events.

It comes as the panel aims to expand further by adding existing voices such as industry organisations, education providers and influencers within the events industry.

Event Profs Panel member and assistant marketing manager at KPMG, Christopher Whelan, said: "The Event Profs Panel has provided me with a fantastic opportunity to meet with my peers, to share industry insights and learn from them. It allows me to be at the forefront of events, and to be a part of the debate on how to raise the level and standard of event organising."

Director of MICE and corporate agency sales at QHotels, Carol Hornblower, added: "The panel gives us the opportunity to work with event professionals and hear what they have to say, from their own perspective.  This in turn also allows us to give something back by providing the panel with a voice to shape the future of the industry."
