McGann has worked for the Butlins brand over the past year and was previously sales and marketing manager at Tourism and Events Queensland for the UK, Ireland & Nordic regions, where she worked on a number of tourism and MICE initiatives.

In her role, McGann will be responsible for promoting Butlins as a trusted conference and events venue in the UK MICE market, leading internal and external brand identity, and managing the development of Butlins Events’ online presence, including a re-development of the brand’s website and social media strategy.

This hire is the first in a series of appointments within the Butlins Events team. The growth of the team is a response to market demand and the division’s 22% business increase reported last year, which included high profile events for British brands including Hasbro, MG, John Lewis and Activision.
