Nick Graham has become the new head of sales at Earls Court and Olympia London.
He takes up his role after four years as senior sales manager and was previously exhibition sales manager at EC&O venues, as it was then known, from 2003 to 2010.
His events career began while studying events management at Swansea where a tour of Wembley Arena sparked his enthusiasm for events. He went on to work at Wembley and at the QEII conference centre, and brings a diverse experience to Earls Court and Olympia London.
“I am very excited to be heading the sales team as we focus on future growth of the business,” said Graham. “Continued investment will enhance our venue, attracting new clients and ensuring retention of existing ones. I’m confident I have the best team behind me, each an expert in their field, committed and passionate about giving clients the best service and experience.”
Earls Court and Olympia sales and commercial director Anna Golden said Graham is an integral member of the team.
“I am delighted that Nick has accepted the role of head of sales. He has demonstrated his passion and enthusiasm for the industry and especially for Earls Court and Olympia over the years. I very much look forward to working with him as the business focuses on the long term future and success of Olympia London.”
Stuart Tomlinson was a winner at the Exhibition News Awards last week, picking up the best venue event manager gong for his work at Earls Court.
