BVEP Strengthens Resources

The Business Visits & Events Partnership (BVEP) has made the double appointment of Carmel Dennis and Gaëlle Connolly as secretariat and administrative support for the partnership with effect from January.

They have replaced Jenny Nathan who will continue to work on event management for VisitBritain and who has over the last couple of years provided steadfast support to the Partnership.

Responsible for managing and organising the Partnership's meetings, Carmel has been in the travel tourism industry for over 20 years, and was previously Marketing Director for the Heart of England Tourist Board and Conference Officer at the University of Liverpool.

Providing administrative and financial support, Gaëlle comes from a background in tourism and has been working as a researcher for TEAM Tourism Consulting for over ten years as webmaster and coordinator of all communications and associate meetings.

Michael Hirst, Chairman of the BVEP comments: "Carmel and Gaëlle have been managing the Partnership's website over the last ten years, so they are both very familiar with our work and their extended support will offer us stability and reliability with our activity going forward. Their

in-depth understanding of the sector and research work can also be put to good use on future projects".

Gaëlle and Carmel have also been working together on a project for the European Travel Commission (New Media Trend Watch at www.newmediatrendwatch.com) that contains data on internet use worldwide, specifically for travel and tourism purposes.
