What does your job entail?

My main job role entails the Planning and Sales of Exhibition Stands at our headline events. I work on the design and procurement of client’s stands, commercial sales as well as the physical build on site. I also look after the P & L for the department ensuring that we achieve our PBT budget over the financial year.

Where are you based on the Estate?

I am based up at the Racecourse in the Event Sales Team Office behind the Client Services department.
