barbican-1Barbican Business Events has added to its team with the appointment of Charlie Smith as an Events Account Executive.

Charlie has joined the Barbican following his time as an event manager on HMS President managing events ranging from summer parties to weddings. Prior to his time on HMS President he attended the University of West London obtaining an event management degree.

“It’s been great and I have learnt so much already with regard to events, networking and the Barbican itself,” he commented. “I’ve been familiar with the events team here previously and it’s wonderful to be working at this venue. It’s an exciting step to work at such a famous and unique venue managing bigger events but I’m also looking forward to learning more about the industry and making a name for myself.”

Charlie’s job role will see him win new business for the Barbican whilst managing existing relationships and promoting the venue at key tradeshows and events.

“Charlie’s experience with a unique venue meant he was perfectly suited to his role at the Barbican,” explained Oliver Hargreaves, Head of Sales at the Barbican. “Already, in just the space of a few short weeks, we have seen a real drive and enthusiasm whether it’s representing the Barbican at events or winning new business. Charlie has hit the ground running and I’m confident he will become an integral part of an already strong Business Events team.”

The Barbican is attending SquareMeal this week (21 & 22) on stand G21 and will also be at IMEX Las Vegas next month.
