What three words would you use to describe the new venue, the eastside rooms?
Innovative, Savvy & Distinctive.
How does the eastside rooms differ from other venues and why will this be good for delegates/event organisers?
The venue is purpose built so has state of the art technology and facilities. Our Affinity Suite is the largest pillar free space in Birmingham and we have 23 meeting rooms in total, which means that all of the delegates in our largest conference space could breakout into workshops and breakout rooms and they could all be accommodated for. The space is versatile and can lend itself to any type of event.
What attracted you to the role at the eastside rooms?
I have always wanted to work on a new opening, so having the opportunity to work on a new opening for two properties, sounded like a great challenge.
What does your day to day work life involve?
Variety and lots of it, speaking to lots of different clients, site visits and visiting clients in their offices too and lots of travel.
What is the favourite part of your role?
No two days are the same, I am a people person too so I really enjoying speaking to lots of different people on a day to day basis.
How did you get into the hospitality industry?
I started working in hospitality as a Hotel Receptionist when I was 18 and took a year out from University, I then worked in a hotel alongside studying for my degree and then when I graduated from University, I knew that my real passion was with the hospitality industry so I decided to work myself up through the industry.
