Kerrin MacPhie

Chief Executive, Meeting Industry Assocation

Kerrin MacPhie became chief executive of the mia in November 2021. Having previously held senior posts in destinations, associations, hotels and convention centres as well as a number of voluntary board positions across the sector’s national and international associations, her extensive knowledge and infectious passion for business meetings and events provides the perfect background to support the future needs of the industry.

Prior to the mia she spent years in hotel management training before managing a convention bureau, taking it through AIM accreditation in 2007 and then supporting the development of a convention centre, arena and exhibition hall from feasibility through to it becoming an award-winning venue.

Elsewhere Kerrin was Head of Business Events for VisitBritain/VisitEngland, promoting the UK to international markets across Europe, North America, and China. Her last role with the National Tourist Authority saw her develop good working relationships with government department DCMS and supporting the development of the Cross Whitehall Group on Business Events. She is also a member of the government Events Industry Board and was an active participant at the Senior Industry Leaders roundtable.
