14 May 2015

Olympia London is delighted to announce the appointment of two new Conference Sales Executives. Caroline Jones and Zoé Powell bring valuable and extensive industry sales experience to take on brand new roles created in the team at an exciting period of growth for the venue’s Conference Centre.

Caroline Jones joins Olympia London from Kudos Catering UK, where she worked as Business Development Executive. An experienced team leader, she brings skills in winning new business, driving profit and ensuring operational efficiencies to the team.

Zoé Powell comes to Olympia London with ten years’ worth of industry experience in events management and event sales. Zoé’s most recent role was at Lime Venue Portfolio, a division of Compass Group, where she helped drive new business into conferencing venues all over the UK, and has worked at venues including Chelsea Football Club and the Natural History Museum.

Head of Sales at Olympia London, Nick Graham, commented: “I am delighted to have Caroline and Zoé on board; both talented individuals who will help drive growth and maximise new business at Olympia London Conference Centre. They join us at a great time, with conference bookings rising by a quarter already for this year and some strong enquiries from the corporate events sector. We are looking forward to an excellent year ahead.”

Olympia London Conference Centre is up for two awards at this year’s Conference Awards, for Best Venue and for Customer Service. The sales team at Olympia London won for Best Sales Team at the recent Exhibition News Awards, in recognition of excellence demonstrated over the past 12 months.
