Two New Appointments Strengthen Edgbaston Stadium's Conference & Events Team

 

Edgbaston Stadium has bolstered its conference & events division with the appointments of Lucy Gibbons as Business Development Manager and Felicity Proctor as Sales Co-Ordinator.

Lucy – who becomes Edgbaston’s first point of contact for meetings, conferences and banqueting events – boasts nine years of experience in the events industry and joins the team from a similar role at Marketing Birmingham, where she worked closely with venues across the city to promote Birmingham as a conference and meetings destination.

Felicity started her events career in London at The Metropolitan Hotel on Park Lane before relocating to Birmingham, where she worked for Malmaison and The St Johns Hotel in Solihull. She joins from a similar role at the Ricoh Arena and will be responsible for Christmas parties and agency familiarisation visits in her new role at Edgbaston Stadium.

Penny Carter, Sales & Marketing at Edgbaston Stadium, said: “In just over 18 months Edgbaston Stadium has become one of the leading conference and banqueting destinations in the West Midlands.

“With our client base continuing to grow at speed, Felicity’s and Lucy’s wealth of industry experience makes them great assets to Edgbaston Stadium and they have already proven to be very popular team members.”

In addition to the appointments of Lucy and Felicity, Edgbaston Stadium is currently recruiting for a full-time Weddings and Events Sales Co-ordinator. For further information, please contact Maria Clune on mariaclune@edgbaston.com.
