Bassigny said: "In TFI Meeting Point, I am thrilled to be joining a company with such strong commitment to the association conference market. I strongly believe in the value and importance of building excellent relationships with clients, seeking to offer them unique and imaginative communication solutions."

Simon Maier, TFI Group's development director, added: "We are clearly delighted that Valerie has joined us, particularly at a time when our association conference order book is filling up. Good association practitioners are scarce and we managed to hire Valerie against tough competition.

"Getting the balance between growth and the first-class ability to deliver is key, and we've got that balance right with our current business development and superb operational teams. Valerie is a fantastic addition as an association conference team leader."
