The Meetings Show strengthens team with key hosted buyer and commercial team appointments
The Meetings Show has strengthened its hosted buyer team with two new managers joining from fellow Centaur Media event The Business Travel Show.

And the bolstering of the hosted buyer team comes as the show is forecasting its highest number of hosted buyer applications to date.

Ahead of the sixth edition of the show on 27-28 June 2018, Della Penfold joins as hosted buyer programme manager, with responsibility for recruitment of hosted buyers and group coordinators, after three years working on The Business Travel Show. Penfold also brings a team of four telemarketers to work on The Meetings Show in the lead-up to this year’s event.

Graham Angus will be taking on the role of hosted buyer manager to lead on the logistics of the programme, having held the same role on The Business Travel Show for the past six years.

The new two-day format, with more streamlined attendance options has so far resulted in a 38 per cent increase year-on-year in applications since registration opened in February.

The Meetings Show has also grown its commercial team, with the appointment of Brett Dempsey as international account manager and the promotions of Ross Barker to commercial director and Jack Marczewski to account director.
