In addition to the global appointment, ETM, which is part of Corporate Travel Management, has announced its expansion into the New Zealand market, establishing a base in Auckland. The move is a direct result of client demand and will give customers local access to specialist event travel management services, including management of business events.

"Tracey has 19 years’ experience in the event management industry, and will lead the company into global expansion, ensuring ETM continues to be recognised as a leading brand in event management."
