Ian joined the NEC Group in 2014 as Venue Sales Director of the NEC, one of Europe’s leading exhibition and event centres. In 2016 his role evolved to include sales leadership of the International Convention Centre (ICC) and the Vox Conference Centre. The NEC Group is one of the top venue management companies in the world and this joined up approach to sales across its UK based venues creates a stronger overall proposition, giving customers greater choice, but with the same passion for event excellence that has characterised the NEC Group’s businesses for over 40 years.
With a sales background in conferences, exhibitions and events, Ian’s previous role as Commercial Director at Marketing Birmingham saw him leading the positioning of the city as an inward investment and events destination.
Ian and his family live in Birmingham and are passionate ambassadors of the city.
